I have been on an Instant Pot kick as of late. You may have noticed that I have been sharing lots of Instant Pot recipes, such as this Caribbean Chicken in the Instant Pot. If you are looking for easy meals that require minimal time and clean up, then an Instant Pot is your new best friend. If you don't have an Instant Pot, you can make this Instant Pot Chili Recipe in any pressure cooker. Now lets enjoy some chili! Be sure to also try this Chili Macaroni Casserole.
Instant Pot Chili Recipe
This Instant Pot chili recipe starts off in a skillet. You will be browning the ground beef in the skillet. Once the meat is browned, pour it into a strainer and drain the excess grease.
Add the browned ground beef to the Instant Pot.
Dice green peppers and onions, and place them into the pot once diced.
Next, add the tomatoes on top of the beef mixture.
Add your tomato sauce as well.
Drain the kidney beans and pour them into the Instant Pot as well.
Now it's time to add some spices. Add chilli powder and Cayenne pepper seasoning and stir to mix.
Finally, add some water and mix well. Seal the lid on the Instant Pot and set timer to the CHILI/BEANS setting. Once the timer is up, release the pressure valve.
Serve with your favorite toppings. Some of our favorites are onion, cheddar cheese mix and green onion.
Serve a bowl of this fragrant chili with some crackers for a filling lunch or dinner.
