More tips for making the best instant pot chili recipe

For veggie goodness, add carrots or try a cup of diced butternut squash. It is also possible to substitute pureed butternut squash for the pumpkin, if you like.

In a pinch, you can use frozen vegetables instead of fresh ones. Adjust cooking time accordingly.

Use the leanest ground beef you can find since you using ground pork, which generally is fatty.

Use a ground meat chopper to help you break up the chili meat and cook it quickly.

You can use a normal lager style beer if you are not gluten free. If you don’t drink beer, use chicken, beef or vegetable broth instead.


You can serve this pot chili over any zucchini noodles or spaghetti squash in your grocery store’s freezer section.

Some folks, like my son, love hot chili. Be certain to place bottles of your favorite hot sauce beside your Instant Pot during serving time!

Do not forget an Instant Pot needs to come before the cooking countdown starts to stress. This takes depends on a variety of factors, such as the size of your Immediate Pot. I have not added pressurizing (and speedy release time) into the cook time, so keep this in mind when beginning dinner! (I try to give myself another 30 to 45 minutes longer time than the recipe calls for just in case.)

Finally, if you receive a Burn Message when cooking the chili recipe, read the Instant Pot Burn Message article from Paint the Kitchen Red for lots of great tips! (I got one because of a teeny piece of onion in the rim which was preventing my unit from sealing.)
