I’ve heard a great chili takes time. As the spices and stock simmer with the beans and meat, a rich and complex flavor develops that is greater than sum of its parts. Many chili recipes recommend at least three hours of simmering. Who has that kind of time to get dinner on the table?

Thankfully with an Instant Pot electric pressure cooker there is always time for a fabulous chili without sacrificing taste. The Instant Pot’s high pressure steam quickly develops the flavors of a delicious chili.

One of the best features of the Instant Pot is that you can saute the aromatics and brown meat right in the Instant Pot. It’s fast and easy and means you’ll only have one pot to wash after dinner.
