Chili in my Instant Pot

I love love love chili, and I would usually only make it during the winter or summer days, when I had a whole afternoon to let it sit simmering on the stove top for a couple of hours, checking on it and stirring every so often.  The flavors needed to “marry” correctly, so it was never a quick or last-minute meal- until I got my Instant Pot IP-DUO50 Multi-Functional Pressure Cooker, 6Qt that is.  Making chili in my Instant Pot is a totally different story! Browning the beef is just about the only thing I need to worry about “doing.”  Everything else just gets thrown in and left to create this deliciousness- so easy, and so tasty!  More importantly, all in ONE pot! Hubby loves this hearty chili too, so it has now become a just about weekly meal in our home.   If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you have no idea what you’re missing out on! I got it for Christmas, and I’m using it just about every day! It’s a pressure cooker/slow cooker/rice maker/saute and more, and it saves me time in the kitchen, while making yummy meals and preserving nutrients in food more than any other cooking method.
