These chili beans are delicious and so easy to make. Dinner is ready in 45 minutes or less! If your chili doesn't have beans it's not outlaw chili. Garnish with lime, cilantro, diced onions, Cheddar cheese, and diced avocado.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and the select Saute function. Coat the bottom of the pot with oil.

    Advertisement
  • Cook beef until browned, about 5 minutes. Add onion, celery, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat. Add chili beans, pinto beans, tomato sauce, green chiles, chili powder, cider vinegar, chile-garlic sauce, oregano, and cumin. Stir well.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

If using a 6-quart Instant Pot(R) place pinto beans in last, only filling the inner pot 2/3 full. If you have an 8-quart Instant Pot(R), all ingredients will fit without overflowing.

I was not able to complete this recipe either with my Instant Pot that I just bought. 3 times I got the burn alert before it could get to pressure cook. there was no notation in recipe to add 1 1/2 cups water for a 6Qt. On the 3rd try after cleaning inner pot and texting instant pot support I added 1 1/2 cups water put my chili back in pot and same thing. before pressure I got the Burn. Needless to say I put everything in my slow cooker to finish cooking. Evidently only a few of us weren't able to complete in IP. Read More

This method is too simple, just brilliant. I used a traditional pressure cooker, 7-quart. I used homemade beans adding some chili style black beans as well as pintos. I used the amount of liquid as written though to keep it from getting too soupy. The flavor is exceptional and with all the garnishes this turned into a meal-in-one for the whole family. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Cut recipe in 1/2. I also got the BURN warning on the Instant Pot. Never got it before I liked the chili. Easy to make. Came out good. The celery not cooked enough because the BURN warning stopped the process. But it was a great change along with the vinegar cider. I'll make it again. The BURN notice appears if there is not enough liquid in the pot to create steam and the bottom parts burn Will definitely try again! Read More
