Thick and hearty Instant Pot Chili is made in minutes but tastes like it has been slow cooking all day.
Did you know the 6 quart Instant Pot Liner Pot is on sale? Having a second pot makes life so much easier!
I used to make chili in my slow cooker because it had all day to cook and the flavors meld together perfectly.
That was until I tried it in Instant Pot! I had forgotten to take out the ground beef and pork out of the freezer the night before. That left me with no time in the morning to thaw everything out and brown the meat before putting all the ingredients in the crock pot.
I came home that afternoon, the meat was thawed but I knew there weren’t enough hours left in the day to make it using the slow cooker.
Instant Pot Chili to the rescue….
We had promised to take chili to a function that evening, and I knew there was only one way to make it. That’s when we discovered Instant Pot Chili!
I browned the meat on saute mode and added the rest of the ingredients. Pressure cooked it on high for 10 minutes and let it naturally release for 10 minutes.
The results were amazing!!! It tasted better than the all day slow cooking method that we used to rave about.
This Instant Pot Chili recipe calls for beef broth for the liquid to help bring it up to pressure, however, you could substitute beer or dry red wine for an additional depth of flavor. And don’t be afraid just to add in a little water if you have nothing on hand. It will still turn out delicious!
We like our dishes with a little extra heat, so when I make this for my family I add in an entire jalapeno and some extra hot pepper powder.
