Instant Pot Chugwater Chili

Chili is a favorite of ours in the winter time.  It is a great comforting food that is best when cooked all day, and even better on the next day.  I knew the Instant Pot could help us get all the flavors combined in a shorter amount of time. 

A great thing about chili is it doesn't take many ingredients to make this hearty soup.  We used local beef and stewed tomatoes from our garden. 

Instant Pot Chili, Chasing Saturdays, easy meal

I browned two pounds of hamburger in the Instant Pot with one chopped onion.  I used the Brown button to brown the meat in the Instant Pot.  This option makes clean up even easier! 

I used 2 quarts of our stewed tomatoes we canned this summer. Two quarts of stewed tomatoes equals 8 cups.  Use tomato juice if you prefer.  We like thick chili. 


2 pounds ground hamburger
1 chopped onion
2 cans chili beans
2 cans stewed tomatoes (I used 2 quarts of stewed tomatoes)
3 tablespoons Chugwater Chili Seasoning
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Brown 2 pounds of hamburger and chopped onion in Instant Pot on Brown setting
2. Add chili beans, stewed tomatoes and Chugwater Chili Seasoning.
3. Lock lid, set manual 15 minutes.
4. Quick release soup when finished.
