Instant Pot Chili

I couldn’t wait to whip up this instant pot chili! The best part is that the beef was barely thawed. This is why pressure cookers, like Instant Pot, are great because meat doesn’t have to be completely thawed for a delicious recipe to come together. Let’s be honest, who here totally forgets to defrost something?! I’m raising my hand loud and proud.

If you do remember to thaw your meat, you can make this recipe in the slower cooker really easily too!

We made sure to top our chili bowls high in cilantro and served it with Siete lime grain-free tortilla chips, which are mighty delicious might I add!

If you’re okay with grass-fed dairy, a little cheese topping is AH-MAZING!
