Delicious Instant Pot Chili

This warming, satisfying and delicious instant pot chili with ground beef will make you ask for more! Healthy instant pot dish that even your kids will love.

In the last month a posted so many Instant Pot recipes, that it looks like its all we eat… which is almost true.

Instant pot saves me a lot of time, which is so important when you are a mom of young kids. Busy all day, running around, trying to clean, cook, deal with crying and screaming, drive all over and be happy at the same time. Ouch.

Instant Pot helps me to cut my cooking time in half (sometimes even in five times, like here, in Caldo de Res in Instant Pot recipe).

This warming, satisfying and delicious instant pot chili with ground beef will make you ask for more! Healthy instant pot dish that even your kids will love.

So, back to the instant pot chili recipe. I cooked it with frozen ground beef from Costco. You know, that one you buy already frozen and blocks.

Dump all the ingredients in to the pot, close the lid, turn on —> 40 minutes after here you have an amazing flavorful chili, no babysitting required ! (see notes for frozen and fresh meat directions).

Nutrition facts calculated without toppings.
When frozen meat is used, one more action will be required after cooking. The meat will be cooked in one block, so after you will have to crumble it with a spatula.
I also like to add 1/3 cup of white wine in the pot. Gives more flavor! Totally optional

    I love my IP! Thanks for the recipe- using a few different ingredients -too snowy to go to the store!
    Chili beans ( in its own sauce), can of Rotel tomato and chilis, butter beans, corn, chicken broth, white wine & frozen ground beef (I’m so not chicken to do this now! Things turn out great from frozen for me!)
    OOPS! Hubby just came in and said, “Why is the IP on venting?!” I corrected that problem! Luckily, its only been on for about 5 minutes! Why do I mention this? Because the IP is forgiving, as long as you catch that mistake early enough, wouldn’t you agree, Tatiana? Can’t wait to try my chili! And I do have all the other fixins! Always have my avocados on hand for Keto lifestyle! bon appetit!

  3. Do you drain the beans/corn first?

  4. Looks good but scares me as I have had problems with recipes with tomato sauces. So, what is my goal? Not to mix ingredients? To try and keep the broth on top to produce steam? Or to move things so the water gets to the bottom to keep things from burning? I have not mastered this type of cooking in the IP yet, so any advice you can give me would be most welcome. Thank you!

  5. I recently discovered smoked paprika and it has drastically changed my cooking! This looks so good.

  6. This looks ABSOLUTELY delicious!! I’m going to have to make this soon! I LOVE chili!

  7. Sharing this recipe with my mom. I’m sure she will love it.
