INSTANT POT AWARD WINNING CHILI RECIPE

We recently attended a chili-cook which kicked my obsession with finding an Instant Pot Award Winning Chili Recipe into high gear

INSTANT POT AWARD WINNING CHILI RECIPE


INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 1/2 Pounds Ground Beef
  • 6 Strips of Bacon, chopped
  • 1 Can (15 ounces) Kidney Beans, drained
  • 1 Can (15 ounces)  Pinto beans, drained
  • 1 Can (15 ounces) Black beans, drained
  • 1 Can (15 ounces) Fire Roasted diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 Can (6 ounce) Tomato paste
  • 1 large Red onion, chopped
  • 1 Red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 Jalapeño, seeded and minced *optional
  • 2 Cups Beef stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 Teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced garlic

DIRECTIONS:

  • Turn your instant pot to sauté and add the bacon.
  • Cook until crisp, stirring often to cook evenly.
  • Remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Add the onions and peppers and cook until tender.
  • Add the meat and cook until browned.
  • Drain off any excess grease, we just tilt the pot and use a large spoon.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients and 3/4 of the bacon and stir to combine.
  • Turn the instant pot to chili (if you don’t have a “chili” settng, use the “manual” setting) and cook for 18-20 minutes*. Allow pressure to release for 10-15 minutes or quick release with the vent.
  • Serve with limes, sour cream, cheese, and a little bacon!
