Instant Pot Chili

I’ve been obsessed with my crockpot for years and my site is filled with tons of crockpot recipes but when I saw this new thing called the Instant Pot it got me curious. I use my rice cooker, slow cooker, and steamer on a weekly basis so having all 3 and more functions all in one appliance got my attention!!

The first thing I cooked was some of the easiest Instant Pot chili ever, well because it’s one of my most popular crockpot recipes and we just love it so much. It came out amazing and is now one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes, so easy too. Here’s how you make it.

1 lb ground beef or turkey, or omit if making it vegetarian
1 can diced tomatoes 14.5 oz, we prefer petite diced
1 can kidney beans 15 oz.
1 small can tomato sauce 8 oz.
2 tsp Lawry's seasoning
1 tbsp minced onion or 1/2 c. fresh diced onions, this is optional
1/2 bell pepper diced, optional
2 tsp chili powder can omit or increase depending on spice level desired
1 tsp garlic powder (or instead of spices listed you can just add 1 packet of chili seasoning from the store)
1/2 c water


Set instant pot to saute and brown meat, add onions and bell peppers if desired. Cook until onions soften a bit. Drain if desired.
Empty cans of beans, tomato sauce, water and diced tomatoes on top (do not drain cans before adding).. Add seasonings and stir the top layers gently leaving most of the meat on the bottom (helps to avoid getting burn notification).
If you have a bit of time to let it simmer hit the chili/beans setting and adjust the time to 20 minutes, this will make beans a bit softer.
 If you are in a hurry set it to manual, pressure, high for 15 minutes. The beans will be a bit more firm this way but still soft. Do a natural release.
 Done! Serve by itself with cheese on top or on top of rice or potatoes.
