Easy Chili Recipe
I can’t say enough about how the pressure cooker has made mealtime a breeze. Sometimes I don’t plan ahead and have all day for the slow cooker.
However, you could also easily throw this easy chili recipe into a crockpot or cook on the stove, stirring occasionally. The beauty of a pressure cooker is that the cooking time is only 20 minutes. It tastes like it cooked all day!
Pressure Cooker Chili Ingredients
Instant Pot Chili has all the usual ingredients. You will find ground beef and kidney beans in a hearty sauce flavored with garlic, onion, chili powder, cumin, chicken broth, and diced tomatoes.
To have homemade chili in minutes, just set the pressure cooker to sauté. Brown ground beef directly in the pressure cooker pot, then drain. I lightly season the ground beef while cooking with a little salt and pepper.
Add the onions and garlic to the ground beef and cook until onions are translucent and softened. Now place the rest of the ingredients into the pressure cooker.
Cook at high pressure for 10 minutes in an electric pressure cooker. That’s it! You are going to love this pressure cooker chili recipe!

Instant Pot Chili Recipe Tips
- If you are looking to cut a few calories and fat, try ground turkey.
- We sometimes change it up and use black beans instead of the kidney beans. I do believe the chili beans are a must for this homemade chili.
- Omit the cayenne for a perfectly kid-friendly, mild chili that’s not spicy.
- Or, make it hotter with extra cayenne and chili powder – or a little hot sauce at the table so everyone’s happy.
- We like our chili with toppings like cheddar cheese, sour cream, green onions or chives, and cilantro. Crackers or tortilla chips are both delicious with it.
- Lean ground beef makes a less greasy chili, or try ground turkey or a vegetarian version instead.
- Like most of my soup recipes, pressure cooker chili reheats and freezes beautifully! Seal it up and keep in the refrigerator for three days, or freeze for up to two months.
- The larger your pressure cooker, the bigger the batch! Got a large pot? Double the recipe for a potluck.
