Instant Pot – Quick & Easy Chili



I like to use Chili as a base for a couple of different meals… Chili, Frito Pies, On baked potatoes, Chili buns and hot dogs. I am not a fan of a super spicy, Hot Chili. So I have been trying to find something that is quick, easy, mild and delicious. I finally did it, and I am going to share it with you! Using my 6 quart pressure cooker like an electric skillet, making this a one pan meal!
