How To Make Healthy Instant Pot Chili:
There's nothing better than a simple, but delicious homemade Chili. This easy recipe to make Chili in an Instant Pot is all you need on days you don't want to cook.
Here's the ingredients you'll need:
- Ground Beef
- Green Pepper
- Canned Tomatoes
- Canned Red Kidney Beans
- Canned Black Beans
and then some spices,
- Chili Powder
- Cayenne Pepper
- Dried Oregano
- Salt and Pepper.
Instant Pot Setting Mode For Chili:
To start off, you'll want to set the Instant Pot to the Sauté setting. This is to brown the ground beef.
Once the ground beef is browned, you'll add in all the rest of the ingredients, give things a good stir, and then seal the lid. Don't worry if it looks a little dry.
Now, set your Instant Pot to the Manual Setting - High Pressure for 12 Minutes. Once the 12 minutes passed - you can quick release the pressure.
Now, it’s ready to enjoy (but not before adding a little heap of grated cheese on top)!
If you’re like me and also believe that soup is an all-year thing and not just a fall/winter thing, you’re in luck! We’ve got some other easy and yummy Instant Pot soup recipes for you to try out!
