    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.

    It isn’t “instant”, but it is darn near close and develops levels of sophisticated flavor in just minutes.

    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.

    Here are a few commonly asked questions for Instant Pot Chili:

    Can you freeze chili? YES! Chili is an excellent dish to be frozen. Break it into the desired serving size, large plastic containers for family meals and smaller plastic bags for single servings, and freeze it for up to 4 months. Chili gets better with age!

    Can I use turkey instead of beef? Yes! Use ground turkey, ground chicken or even bulk ground sausage or venison. In fact, if you really want to up the flavor factor, use any mix of protein.

    Can I omit the sugar? Sure you can! Sugar helps to balance out the acidity, but it isn’t necessary. If you are looking for a more natural sweetener, try using agave nectar or honey instead.

    Can I omit the beans? You are one of those bean haters, aren’t you? You can surely omit the beans, but I would recommend doubling up on protein, tomatoes, onion and bell pepper to have enough volume to make the same number of servings.
