Instant Pot Chili

I love chili! And I love experimenting with chili recipes. Spicy, sweet, white, chicken, turkey, simmered all day or even made in a slow cooker. All chili recipes have their own merits and I refuse to believe that there is one singular best chili recipe. But not all chili recipes are created equal.

While I do have my own quick chili recipes that are good, I prefer my chili to simmer for hours upon hours letting the flavors marry and develop. However,  I don’t always have the luxury of time (or foresight.) The Instant Pot solves that problem.

Instant Pot Chili allows me to make it fast, but not sacrifice sophisticated flavor. This is a spicy chili recipe using chili powder, jalapeños and pepper jack cheese to add heat. Both pinto and black beans add creaminess to lean ground beef and juicy tomatoes.

Pair this spicy chili with a complementing sweet cornbread or with my jalapeño cornbread muffins. And if you are a chili lover like me, scroll on down to check out even more award winning chili recipes!

If you haven’t gotten on the Instant Pot train yet, you should. This bad boy has several functions that make life easier, but the main one is as an electric pressure cooker. Check out my article on the Instant Pot Basics.

I’m totally obsessed with my Instant Pot right now. It’s so perfect for turning slow-cooked dishes like chili into last-minute dinners! I love how you kept this recipe simple… just a nice, homey, old-school kind of chili, perfect for cornbread. 🙂

I’m pretty sure the instant pot was made for chili…and chili was made for the instant pot LOL. There’s something to be said about making a classic menu item on a regular basis…in a short period of time. Loving my instant pot…Thanks for sharing this recipe!

I have to get an Instant Pot for sure. This Chili looks amazing.
