Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker

Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker

It is that time of year when you need a meal and you need it fast.  So, warm, comfort food is on the menu. Chili can be easily made in your slow cooker which we listed below and you can also make a Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker and then served three different ways. Make a big pot of chili and warm up with this homey soup after being out in the snow. Then, use the leftovers to make nachos and chili dogs for the big game.  You can even make Chili cheese dog casserole recipe.

Once you’ve eaten the chili as a soup, take the lid off the slow cooker and leave it on “low”. The chili will cook down and thicken as the liquid evaporates. Use the thick chili as a topping for hot dogs and to make your own nachos. Chili dog toppings to have on hand are spicy mustard, chopped onions, warm sauerkraut, sweet pickle relish, coleslaw, and of course, ketchup.

Making your own nachos is easy; just think layers. On the serving platter, spread tortilla chips evenly. Next, goes your thick, warm chili. Then, shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, asiago, a mix…your choice). Top the cheese with finely, shredded iceberg lettuce, chopped tomatoes, sliced black olives, jalapeno slices, dollops of sour cream, and freshly chopped cilantro. This will make a beautiful presentation and guests will gobble it up!

The recipe is the same for both chili recipes, however, the cooking instructions and times will differ.

Crockpot chili directions

On the stove brown meat with onions. The onions should be translucent. Then drain the meat. Next, you will need to place meat and onion mixture in crock pot.  Then you will need to add garlic, tomatoes, water, soaked kidney beans, salt, chili powder, and cayenne pepper.  Finally, you will need to cook on low 6-8 hours or until beans are soft. You may reduce water for a thicker consistency.

Serve with shredded Cheddar cheese, sour cream, crushed corn chips, fresh chopped cilantro, chopped jalapenos, or your choice of toppings.

Chili Recipe For the Pressure Cooker

I know a lot of people are using their pressure cooker xl and instant pot I know I am because my time is limited. That is why I do two things each week the first thing is I brown beef. I put it in a freezer bag and I pop it in the freezer or leave it in the refrigerator depending on what I have on my Instant Pot pressure cooker meal plan for the week.

Get the most out of your instant pot. Plan your meals to save time and money. Get our free printable instant pot pressure cooker meal plan and try new pressure cooker recipes for dinner, some sides and desserts.

Then I have a head start. I find a lot of recipes use ground meat so it is helpful to have it on hand. I will share what I do if you haven’t browned your meat prior to starting this recipe.

  1. Spray a non-stick cooking spray in the bottom of your Pressure cooker.
  2.  Turn on the meat function on your pressure cooker.
  3. Brown the meat and add in the onion. It usually takes about 7 minutes. You want your onions to be translucent.
  4. Then turn off the meat cooking setting by pressing cancel.
  5. Add in the remaining ingredients. (I do not drain the cans since the pressure cooker requires more liquid. I do leave out the water in the recipe above.)

1 lb. Ground beef, venison, or turkey
2 onions, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Green Peppers
28 oz diced tomatoes
½ lb dry kidney beans (soaked overnight) OR 2 (14.5 oz) cans
1 T salt
½ T chili powder
Dash cayenne pepper

6. Turn on the soup setting for 10 minutes

7. Make sure the valve is set to close

8. Close the Pressure cooker

9. Once the cooking time is done you can let the pressure out by using your finger mitts 

10. You can let the pressure cooker chili stay in the pot on the warming temperature until you are ready to eat it

If you enjoy chili here are a couple of recipes we have. The cooking instructions will be the same to brown the meat or cook the chicken and add in the other ingredients with a cooking time of 10 minutes on the soup function.
