Quick, hearty, and delicious Instant Pot chili recipe that tastes like it was simmering on the stove for hours!

One of the best things about living in Florida is our amazing grocery store, Publix. It’s the best, for real. During my most recent grocery shopping trip to Publix my shopping cart was sending me some (not so) subliminal messages to purchase some yummy Fresh From Florida produce. One of the other great things about living in Florida is having access to Fresh From Florida produce nearly year round.
I ended up purchasing all of the ingredients I needed to make chili in my Instant Pot. Chili is one of the most requested meals in my home, and I love using my Instant Pot pressure cooker to cook my favorite meals much quicker than they would take on the stovetop.
I was super impressed with how this chili recipe turned out in the pressure cooker. It tasted as if it was simmering on the stove all day long, when in reality it was in the Instant Pot for way less than one hour.

Instant Pot Chili Recipe
Here’s what you’ll need to get it cookin’:
– 5 slices of bacon
– 2 lb ground beef (I used 80/20)
– 1 pound Fresh From Florida Bell Peppers (diced)
– 1 yellow onion (diced)
– 1 14.5oz can Fire Roasted Tomatoes
– (2) 6 oz cans tomato paste
– 1 14.5 oz can kidney beans
– 4 ears Fresh From Florida Sweet Corn (remove corn kernels from cob)
– 1 cup beef broth
– 1 tbsp garlic powder
– 1 tsp Black pepper, ground
– 2 tbsp chili powder
– 2 tsp salt (or less depending on your taste)
– 1 tsp smoked paprika
First, set Instant Pot to saute mode and fry the bacon. Once it’s cooked, remove from the pot and set aside on paper towels. Leave any brown bits that have accumulated in the bottom of the pot. This will give your chili incredible flavor!
With the Instant Pot still in saute mode, add meat, peppers, onions, and seasoning into the pot. Cook for about 5-10 minutes, until meat is browned and veggies are softened. Now, add in fire roasted tomatoes, tomato paste, corn, half of the bacon you set aside (crumbled) and beans. Stir all together until everything is well coated with tomato paste. Pour beef broth over the top and switch the Instant Pot to manual for 20 minutes.
When the pressure cooker has finished making your chili, do a quick release of the steam. Crumble the rest of the bacon you set aside and sprinkle over the top.
Serve with a garnish of cheese, sour cream, and cilantro if you’d like. Enjoy!!
