This Instant Pot Chili is quickly becoming my go-to chili recipe. It tastes like it’s been simmering on the stovetop all day but rather it’s cooked in the Instant Pot and ready in under an hour. It’s jam packed with flavor and it’s the perfect ending to a long, cold day.
Of course the inspiration for this recipe was my Slow Cooker Chili, it’s been one of my most popular most loved recipes for years now. They are very very similar but I did make a few adjustments.
I love that this recipe cooks faster than the slow cooker does and I also love that it’s all cooked in the one pot, rather than having to brown the beef and onions in a pot on the stove then add the slow cooker. Less dishes, yes please!
Chili is one of the dinners I make on a regular basis year round. We eat it every other week.
I love the flavors, it’s so filling, it’s easy to make, I almost always have everything for it on hand, and my whole family loves it.
Plus it freezes well so I save what’s left for my kids school lunches. I let it thaw in the fridge for a day then reheat and put it in their Thermoses.
I usually always serve this chili with baked potatoes (I mean in baked potatoes) or with Homemade Cornbread. Then of course plenty of cheese and sour cream.
Grilled corn or just boiled (previously frozen) corn with butter and salt makes another great, easy side dish. Avocados are always nice too.
Or just skip it all and dive in with saltine crackers or tortilla chips!
