WHOLE30 INSTANT POT CHILI

WHOLE30 INSTANT POT CHILI

Nothing says comfy, cozy like a bowl full of chili by a warm fire! I have been stalking Pinterest for the perfect recipe and finally found a Whole30 Instant Pot chili recipe that the whole family would love. Typically, chili contains a ton of beans and other ingredients we don’t eat. However, this recipe is not only delish, but is also super simple, quick, and Whole30 compliant. But don’t worry, no one has to know…it is JUST as delish as traditional chili. The hubs even requested it for dinner again tonight! So, let’s take back our weeknights by not spending all night in the kitchen. Starting with some grass-fed ground beef and have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes! Looking for more inspo?

THE MOST DELICIOUS, EASIEST INSTANT POT CHILI RECIPE

I found this recipe on the website Nom Nom Paleo. I pretty much stuck to the original recipe but made a couple changes. We LOVE the White Oak Pastures grass fed ground beef, but any ground beef will work. For this recipe, I used 85/15 meat, but you can also opt for a lower fat version. I opted for ghee instead of EVOO, because the flavor is SO GOOD. Personally, the toppings absolutely make this dish. I added lime wedges, avocado, white and green onions, coconut yogurt, and hot sauce. The cayenne pepper is optional, but I chose to add this as well…the spicier, the better! HOWEVER, make sure you omit this ingredient if your kiddos are sensitive to spicy foods, because it does give it quite the kick!

SERVING TIP: While you are cooking the chili, you can bake some sweet potatoes in the oven. Then serve the chili on top of the sweet potatoes with the toppings I list below. YUM.com!

WHOLE30 INSTANT POT CHILI: INSTANT POT TIPS

This was my first attempt at the Instant Pot, and it was as easy as advertised! Here are a few tips:

  1. Make sure you put the silver insert in the main pot. This is required and makes clean up super easy.
  2. Don’t forget to “lock” the Instant Pot valve.
  3. Use the Instant Pot timer. I started freaking out when the timer on the Instant Pot said 13 minutes and my timer said 9 minutes. DON’T WORRY, this is by design! The Instant Pot timer does not start until the pressure builds up to the appropriate amount, so there may be a small lag.
  4. In regards to letting the pressure release naturally or forcing the pressure out, it really depends on the recipe. For this recipe, I allowed it release on it’s own. I hate to give you this answer, BUT the best thing to do is Google it based on what your cooking. For example, you would use a different method for releasing the pressure when cooking sweet potatoes than you would when cooking soup. So, just google “instant pot sweet potato pressure release” or something similar. Click here for a great guide on pressure releasing as well.

WHOLE30 INSTANT POT CHILI: RECIPE

Save your weeknights with this DELISH Instant Pot Chili recipe. Start with ground beef and a few veggies and have dinner on the table in 30 minutes that your whole family will love. Oh, and guess what? It's Whole 30 and Paleo compliant.

Cook Time:20 min
Prep Time:10 min
Total Time:30 min
Category:entree
Yield:6
Method:Instant Pot
Directions
1. Press the sauté button on the Instant Pot and wait for the metal insert to heat up. Once the insert is hot, add 1 tablespoon of fat and swirl it around.

2. As soon as the oil is shimmering, add the onions and bell peppers with a sprinkle of salt.

3. Cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until the vegetables are softened.

4. Stir in the tomato paste and minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

5. Add in the ground beef, along with 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Brown the meat, and break it up with a spatula.

6. Cook about 5-7 minutes or until most of the ground beef is no longer pink (5 to 7 minutes), then stir in the chili powder, oregano, cumin, and cayenne pepper (optional). Remember, if you don't want it too spicy, leave out the cayenne pepper.

7. Combine well to distribute the fragrant spices.

8. Toss in the drained diced tomatoes, broth, and fish sauce.

9. Stir everything well, making sure the liquid reaches the bottom of the insert.

10. Lock the lid and cook under high pressure for 15 minutes. To do this, press the “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” button and set the time for 15 minutes under high pressure. Remember, the timer may not start right away. It will start once the optimal pressure has been established.

11. When the chili is finished cooking, you can release the pressure manually if you want to serve immediately. Otherwise, let the pressure come down naturally and chow down when you’re ready. I chose to allow it to come down on it's own.

12. Stir in the apple cidar vinegar, and add salt and pepper to taste.

13. Serve with your FAV toppings, such as green and white onions, avocado, lime wedges, and of course, hot sauce! NOM NOM!
