  • Heat 1 teaspoon oil in the pot. Add onion, carrots, celery, red bell pepper, and garlic. Cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add chili powder, cumin, and red pepper flakes; cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.

  • Pour beef broth into the pot; scrape the browned bits of food off the bottom of the pot. Stir in cooked beef, red kidney beans, and white kidney beans. Add diced tomatoes, but do not stir. Close and lock the lid. Select Bean/Chili function; 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. Stir in lemon juice and tomato paste. Add more tomato paste for a thicker chili. Let sit for 10 minutes before serving.

Really nice! However, I think its best to put in the tomato paste prior to cooking. I agree that the lemon juice can be last since the flavour breaks down. Anyway just a small adjustment to a wonderful chili recipe. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This chili recipe is awesome! I only changed a couple of things due to what I had on hand-instead of a red pepper I used a green pepper and instead of whole tomatoes I used diced. Served with Golden Sweet Cornbread by bluegirl this recipe is a keeper! Read More
