There's nothing like a steamy hot bowl of chili on a cold snowy day. What's even better is having it ready within 35 minutes from start to finish.

  • Return the open pressure cooker to the burner over medium heat, pour in the olive oil, and stir in the onion, green pepper, and jalapeno pepper. Cook and stir for 3 to 4 minutes, until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic, and cook and stir for about 30 more seconds. Return the meat to the pressure cooker; mix in the kidney beans, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, brown sugar, cocoa powder, red pepper flakes, chili powder, cumin, salt, and water.

  • Lock the lid, bring the cooker up to pressure, reduce heat to maintain pressure, and cook for 8 minutes. Remove cooker from the heat, and let the pressure reduce on its own, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • When the pressure is fully released, remove the lid, stir the chili, and serve.

This Chili has a great texture. I was skeptical of a chili that didn't include any corn starch to thicken the sauce. But this really turned out well. The pressure cooker makes this a quick easy and energy efficient recipe. Read More

I make Chili frequently in the winter. Using my electric pressure cooker makes it so easy! I really liked this recipe. You can make it as basic or as fancy as you want. I usually leave out hot spices as some family members do not tolerate it. I increased the meat to 2 lbs. as family likes a lot of meat in the chili. Also, I only added enough additional water to rinse the tomato sauce cans, probably 1/2 to 1/3 cup as we like our chili thick. Read More

This is the best red chili I've made so far. My aunt's white bean chili is still my personal favorite. The brown sugar really set this chili apart for me while the spicyness was still there. Read More

I made this tonight and it turned out great. I used two minced chipotle peppers instead of the jalepeno and fire roasted tomatoes rather than plain. I increased the cocoa and chili powder by a full TBSP each. Read More

For those wanting a thicker chili - Reserve a 1/2 cup or so of the beans and mash them before adding to the chili. This will thicken the chili. Or just wait until the chili is done and smash some of the beans against the side of the pot. You can also decrease the amount of water in the recipe to suit your taste. Read More

I think this is a great recipe and I don't think it's missing anything. I made this for a potluck dinner and it was one of the first things to go. I don't have a pressure cooker so I cooked the ground beef onions and peppers on the stove and then made the recipe in the crockpot. I will make this again. Read More
