Total time: 
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 lbs Ground Beef
  • 1 Yellow Onion, chopped
  • 1 Yellow Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper, chopped
  • 1 Red Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • 1 small can Tomato Paste
  • 3 T Chili Powder
  • 1 T Garlic Powder
  • 1 T Cumin
  • 2 cups Water, divided
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  1. Place the steaming rack in the bottom of your InstantPot, followed by 1 cup of water. Remove 2 pounds of frozen ground beef from the freezer and stack on top of the steaming rack. Set your InstantPot to sealing, for 15 minutes on high pressure.
  2. While the ground beef cooks, chop your onions and bell peppers. Mix up your spices in a separate bowl.
  3. When the InstantPot is done, do a quick release, then lift the steaming rack out with the ground beef still stacked on top, and set aside while you drain the liquid in the bottom of the InstantPot bowl. Replace the bowl in the InstantPot and dump the ground beef back in, setting the steamer rack aside to be washed.
  4. Chop the ground beef in the bottom of the InstantPot, then add in the spices, tomato paste, chopped onions, peppers, and water, mixing thoroughly to combine. Replace the lid, and cook for another 5 minutes on high pressure.
  5. Do a quick release, then serve the chili while it's still warm with the topping of your choice.
