  5. Next, add the last tablespoon of olive oil to the pot and add the onion and garlic to the pot and sauté for 2 minutes, stirring periodically.
  6. Pour the rice into the pot with the onion and toast the rice for 2 minutes.
  7. Finally, add the chicken back to the pot along with the diced tomatoes, green chilis, 2 tablespoons of taco seasoning, salt, and chicken broth to the pot and mix.
  8. Cover the Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes. 
  9. Quick release pressure from the Instant Pot.
  10. Uncover the Instant Pot and add the bell peppers and black beans to the pot, stir, and place the cover back on the Instant Pot and let the peppers and black beans warm in the Instant Pot for 5 minutes.
  11. Remove the cover, stir, and serve burrito bowls with cheese, Greek yogurt, cheese, or any of your other favorite burrito bowl toppings.
