Made this yesterday for the hubby and myself and we both equally enjoyed it. It did need a little more salt though.

Asha Shomer

Omg this was honestly one of the best instant pot chili meal I've made in a long time, I'm in love!

Normally I don't bother to leave a review but I have to say that this recipe turned out to be super good and I REALLY recommend trying it because all the flavours make this one of the best instant pot recipes out there.

Turned out AMAZING, I'm in love with the ingridents in this instant chili dish.

Dayanna Baglieri

SO GOOD, I added some corn to mine and sprinkled a bit of shredded mozzarella cheese, tasted wonderfully!

Mariella Eckrote

The first time I made this I added way too much chili powder because I thought that 3 teaspoons would not be enough, I learned my lesson the hard way, stick to the recipe folks! The second time it came out absolutely perfect because I followed the instructions to a T.

Lindsay Caracoza

Will be sharing this with my family again this week, couldn't miss the chance to make this again.

Marlie Vandeloo

It's really messy to prepare since I don't have any fancy bowls to put my stuff in and instead have to use just one singular plate because there is a lot of ingridents. The food was really tasty though.


Easy and delicious!
