One of the best things about chili is how multi-layered the experience is. One second you’re inhaling the smoky fragrance and the next you’re biting into a steaming spoonful of savory goodness.

But, wait? Is it only savory goodness? There’s a bite with a sweet diced tomato, and the next holds a bite of creamy black beans. Then you get a hit of smoky chipotle, followed by the freshness of a bite of bell pepper.

And when you throw meat, cheese, sour cream, and cilantro into the experience – well – you’ve got yourself a fabulous weeknight meal.

Wait, a “weeknight meal?” you might be asking yourself. “Doesn’t chili take hours to cook?”

Well, Mon Cher, we have a way for you to get the ingredients into an Instant Pot and then dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.

Granted, there’s some chopping involved – but with our favorite chef’s knife – that’s not even a chore. It’s a pleasure. Dock your favorite device, crank some music, pour a glass of beer, and enjoy the ride.

You’ve got dinner well in hand. Now grab that Instant Pot, round up your ingredients, get that cutting board ready and let’s dig in!
