Anyone else agree that not much is better on a cold night than a big bowl of chili with your favorite toppings and accompaniments? What is better is making said chili in your Instant Pot pressure cooker! Behold, Instant Pot Chili!
What are you favorite things to eat with Chili – comment & let me know!
Perhaps some cornbread, cheese and avocado, sour cream, white onion, some rice or pasta, chips, your fave hot sauce, perhaps even cinnamon rolls and Peanut butter sandwiches (anyone else’s mind BLOWN by those last 2? I’ve heard it might be a Midwest thing… comment and tell me what you think!).
Usually when I make chili, it takes about 2 hours or so in my dutch oven on the stove. I like to brown the meat, then sauté with the veg, then add the rest of the ingredients and simmer on low for about 90 minutes. I stir every 10-15 minutes or so. And I make a mess on my glass top stove top. It comes out absolutely delish, and I love it, but it takes quite a bit of time and effort.
I was pleasantly surprised (as per the usual) that my Instant Pot worked wonders for a quicker, delicious Chili!
Between prep and cook time, it took less than 45 minutes to make Chili in my Instant Pot – that’s less than half the time it takes me on the stove if you didn’t do the math.
The Instant Pot (or other Pressure Cooker) makes Chili a realistic week night meal – hip-hip-hooray, because sometimes those are hard time find in the time I have (ya feel me?!).
