Instant Pot Chili Recipe

As I announced to you all a few weeks ago - I am the brand new owner of an Instant Pot! Disclosure: as someone so "nicely" pointed out, the pressure cooker I have is NOT a branded Instant Pot, in case that matters to you.  I joined the club...or cult; whatever.  The first recipe that Jeremy and I wanted try was a chili recipe, so we got online and started searching for the perfect one.  Instead of using a specific recipe we kind of created our own by using about three other recipes.  It turned out to be a great combination and everyone loved it, even the kids!

When I first started reading all about the Instant Pot I was so intriged about being able to cook a home cooked meal so quickly.  This recipe was a great first Instant Pot recipe to try because it was so easy and fast.  I still find it so amazing that we were able to make a pot of chili in under 30 minutes!  So crazy!!  I am looking forward to trying more recipes with my new instant pot!

  2. I haven't tried the instant pot yet. I hear a lot of great things about it, so I do want to try it. With the amount of time I spend driving to and from work, this would be great for making healthier meals when I get home.

  4. I literally laughed out loud when I read your introduction as cult is quite a good word for this. The instant pot thing has been popping up on all my social media feeds lately and people are just raving about this 'revolutionary' new appliance. Your recipe sounds delish and I hope you get to experiment with many more dishes with your new gadget.

  5. I've never tried to make my own chili before. Mostly because it's not well loved among the kids, plus I tend to not like ones with chunks of tomato. I don't get the whole instant-pot thing, but I really have enough appliances that I don't need another one! XD Still, I think if I took out the tomato chunks I'd love this recipe!

  6. I'm not a huge fan of crockpot style meals however, I do know that soups and chili turn out well. This is such a great winter meal!
