Instant Pot Chili

If there's one thing the Instant Pot does well, it's chili. The pot takes away all of the legwork of standing and stirring over the stove for forever. This is now our favorite chili recipe. It's so flavorful! Swap in different beans or use ground turkey instead. It will all come out delicious! The Instant Pot is able to give this chili it's deep flavor that is usually developed while simmering on the stove for a long time and sautéing the vegging in the pot helps the flavor even more making the step worth it.
