Instant Pot Beef Chili
I love this quick and easy Instant Pot Beef Chili made with ground beef, tomatoes, beans and corn.
Winter is just around the corner and that means it’s soup & chili season.
I made this chili about a week ago. I usually make it in my slow cooker but I decided to try it in my Instant Pot. I was a little nervous because it was the first time I made my chili for my husband and I wanted it to be super good.
And you guys, I’m so glad I made it my Instant Pot because it only took 20 minutes to make and it tasted the same as I used to make it in the slow cooker for 4-6 hours! No more waiting around for the chili to be done all day…now I can make chili whenever I want.

HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT CHILI
MY FAVORITE INSTANT POT: I have this Instant Pot, it’s a 6 quart and perfect for my husband and I. If you have a bigger family or your always hosting parties, I would HIGHLY recommend getting the 8 quart Instant Pot. You can also make more things in the 8 quart like whole chicken, whole turkey, cheesecake, brownies…I have the 8 quart Instant Pot on my Christmas wishlist.
INSTANT POT ACCESSORIES: I also, recommend getting the Instant Pot Non-Stick Cooking Pot…I just got mine in the mail and it makes a HUGE difference because things don’t “stick/burn” to the bottom of the pot anymore.
CHILI TOPPINGS: One of the best parts about chili is the toppings. I love to add sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado and even tortilla chips.
PERFECT FREEZER MEAL: I love making this chili and then freezing it. Or you can make it ahead of time and place it in the refrigerator, it heats up perfectly in a saucepan or microwave.
