Let’s talk about how to make this chili step by step, and discuss what goes well with it, and how to freeze chili to eat later. So much to talk about, so let’s get going!


We attended a chili cook-off and brought this awesome Cheesy Ground Beef Enchilada Chili. It was so good, but soooo many arteries were clogged that night. It’s a pretty unhealthy chili, but I heard a rumor that if you don’t eat it alone the calories don’t count.

Pretty sure that’s true.

If you want a healthy chili recipe, you should definitely try our award winning healthy turkey instant pot chili and all chili, healthy or not so healthy, should be accompanied with a side of corn bread or our crazy easy 7-Up biscuits!

Oh! And listen to this, at the chili cook-off a couple of people brought muffin tins and then placed a sample scoop of chili in each well so they could try them all and vote without going back or over eating. GENIUS. That’s seriously the smartest thing ever. Next to figuring out this award winning instant pot chili recipe, right?!

We hurried and made you all a video to help with the questions. Thank you for all of your love and support with making this the #1 instant pot chili recipe out there!


How to Make Chili in an Instant Pot

Making the chili in an instant pot is really easy because there’s an actual setting for chili and beans (if you don’t have that setting, you can totally use “manual”). That pretty much takes all of the thinking out of this, and everything can be done in the instant pot, which means only one dish to clean!!

Have you seen our Instant Pot cheat sheet? Head there are all our tips for cooking all the basics in your Instant Pot!

How Long to Cook Chili in an Instant Pot

From start to finish, 18 minutes is all it took to cook this amazing chili, but you could push it to 30 minutes for even more flavor, and I had no reason for rushing, it was purely because instant pot is in my head so I wanted it instantly done. Let’s go through it step by step:

  1. Turn your instant pot to “saute” and cook the bacon until crispy.
  2. Remove the bacon and saute the bell peppers and onions until tender.
  3. Add the ground beef and cook until browned and drain any excess grease.
  4. Add all the remaining ingredients and stir everything together
  5. Place the lid on the instant pot and set to “chili” mode (“manual” can be used too).
  6. Cook for 18-20 minutes and allow a natural release fro 10-15 minutes. If you get the burn notice, please see the section below.
  7. Once it is cooked, serve it up and top with all your favorite toppings.

How to Brown Meat for our Chili in an Instant Pot

  1. Alright, start with your bacon. Always.
    • Whenever bacon is going in a dish we crisp it first, drain the fat and leave the browned bits in the pan. All it does is add extra flavor to whatever comes next
    • Start by pressing the saute button and once you can feel the heat, add the chopped bacon, stirring occasionally until crisp. Remove to a paper towel lined plate and drain the fat
  2. Next, grab your ground beef. Any kind is fine for chili since other flavors are in there, but there’s more flavor in an 80/20 versus 90/10, though you will need to drain out the fat before continuing on.
    • Make sure you stir occasionally in order to crumble the meat instead of having big chunks. Chili shouldn’t be big and chunky. Leave that to the hippopotamuses.  (Totally had to spell check that one. Who knew hippos could be so difficult.)

Burn Notice on Instant Pot

We’ve had a lot of questions, comments and concerns about the burn notice on the instant pot.

  • Cooking the Bacon Burn Notice- Is your bacon extra thin or lacking fat? Both of these can cause the bacon to stick to the bottom of the pot and cause a burn notice. Those browned bits stuck to the pot because of the lack of flat can make the instant pot think that you’ve walked away and left meat to burn.

To counter this, please use a good quality bacon and stir often to keep it from sticking.

  • Prior browned bits on the pot- If your pot had previous food stuck to the bottom of the pot it will continue to cook and confuse the pot to thinking that something is burning. Clean your pot well after every use. Bar Keeper’s Friend is my go-to cleaner for browned bits in pots and pans.


Instant pot chili but it can be made in a slow cooker too! Best chili recipe ever!


  • Burn notice after the chili has been combined- If your chili has been combined and then you get the burn notice you probably didn’t thoroughly stir everything together or something is stuck to the bottom of the pot. This is why that bacon step is important. if you added those heavy ingredients and added the lid something will probably stick and burn. Stir well, make sure you measured properly.

We have not ever had a burn notice. If you’re getting quite a few, make sure that pot is clean, stir things well, adding oil while cooking the bacon if it appears that there isn’t much fat, and if none of that works, you should contact instant pot as you may have a model that needs to be replaced.


What to Eat with Chili from Scratch

We’ve already mentioned our corn bread and crazy easy 7-Up biscuits, which make awesome sides. Really any sort of bread will get the job done beautifully, but if you are making this in an instant pot, then you probably want dinner done in a hurry, so these 1 Hour Rolls are your answer! I often like something light and fresh with my chili like this garden balsamic avocado salad. I’ve also heard that people eat cinnamon rolls with chili, and I fully endorse this! Try our World’s Best Cinnamon Rolls!

How to Freeze our Chili

Chili is really easy to freeze as there isn’t any dairy or fibrous vegetables to mess with texture and flavor. Cool your chili completely and store in ziplocs with all the air pressed out, or we prefer to use our Food Saver as the chili tastes as fresh as the day it was made. You can store individual servings to eat for lunch or larger portions to feed the whole family later.

How to Make our Best Chili Recipe in a Slow Cooker or Crock Pot

To make slow cooker chili (I linked up to the brand and model we prefer) or of course make chili in a crock pot if that’s what you have, you’ll need to cook the bacon and ground beef in a pan, then add the peppers and onions to saute them all nice and tender. Then dump it all in a slow cooker and we prefer 5-6 hours on low or 3 hours on high, though I have probably only used the high function twice. Low and slow really allows the spices to bloom, or in other words to open up and really do their thing.

Why Make Soup or Chili in an Instant Pot


When you pressure cook something not only does it make it super tender but oh how it enhances flavor!! Our award winning instant pot chili recipe totally proves that a little pressure can be a really good thing!

When it comes to chili, I want it to be full of flavor, bold and comforting! Friends, this recipe is the result of me making dozens of recipes in order to find the greatest chili of all time. So I tell you hands down this chill recipe is the VERY BEST!

Servings: 8 servings
Calories: 459kcal
Author: Sweet Basil


  • 1 1/2 Pounds Ground Beef
  • 6 Strips of Bacon good quality, chopped
  • 1 Can 15 ounces Kidney Beans, drained
  • 1 Can 15 ounces  Pinto beans, drained
  • 1 Can 15 ounces Black beans, drained
  • 1 Can 15 ounces Fire Roasted diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 Can 6 ounce Tomato paste
  • 1 large Red onion chopped
  • 1 Red bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 1 Jalapeño seeded and minced *optional
  • 2 Cups Beef stock
  • 1 Tablespoon Dried oregano
  • 2 Teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 Teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 1 Teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Minced garlic

For Garnish

  • Sour Cream
  • Cilantro
  • Cheese shredded


  • Turn your instant pot to sauté and add the bacon.
  • Cook until crisp, stirring often to cook evenly.
  • Remove the bacon to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Add the onions and peppers and cook until tender.
  • Add the meat and cook until browned.
  • Drain off any excess grease, we just tilt the pot and use a large spoon.
  • Add all of the remaining ingredients and 3/4 of the bacon and stir to combine.
  • Turn the instant pot to chili (if you don't have a "chili" settng, use the "manual" setting) and cook for 18-20 minutes*. Allow pressure to release for 10-15 minutes or quick release with the vent.
  • Serve with limes, sour cream, cheese, and a little bacon!



For the stove: Cook everything in the pot just like you do for the instant pot and then allow to simmer on low heat for 3 hours. For the slow cooker: Cook the bacon and set aside on a plate. Cook the onion and peppers and set aside on another plate. Drain any excess grease and add the meat, cooking until browned. Add everything into the pot, leaving out a little bacon for garnish and cook on low for 5-6 hours or on high for 3 hours. Most batches will be done after 18 minutes, however we've had a few times when the flavor just wasn't there yet, so feel free to pressure cook a little longer for more flavor or if your beans are not as tender as you'd like. To freeze, cool the chili completely. Place in a large ziploc bag or FoodSaver, removing all air and freeze by laying flat for up to 2 months.

  4. Hello i have a question, I am wanting to try this recipe but i only have dried beans. Can i add the dry beans in , adjust the liquid and time, then cook? Or should i just cook the beans seperatly first, then add them to the recipe

    • Hi Shawna! Yes, cook them separately first, and then follow the directions for this recipe. They need to be completely cooked in order for this recipe to work correctly.

  6. I didn’t have a problem with the burn message. I used the manual pressure cook for 20 minutes. I wonder if the burn message something to do with the chili/beans button as opposed to the manual pressure cook option???/

  7. This chili was delicious!!! I made it as directed except that I cooked the bacon in the oven. Outstanding!

  8. This may be a silly question … Sorry
     If doubling the recipe, Do I also double beef stock?

  9. Man, no joke on the Burn notice, and this is the first recipe I’ve ever had this repeatedly happen. I didn’t even cook bacon or meat in the pot to try and alleviate the issue after reading the other comments. I cooked the meat separately and added oil to the pot to cook the veg. The bottom was completely scraped and then each time I set it for chili mode pressure it goes to burn after about 5 minutes and the bottom is caked. My guess is it’s the tomato paste to liquid ratio. Better off just slow cooking it…

    • Hey Erin! I’m so sorry you had so many issues with this! We have made this dozens of times just as the instructions say and have never had a burn notice problem. I’m not sure why it is an issue for so many readers, but we include more tips about avoiding it in our turkey chili post if that helps at all:

      The slow cooker and stove top methods also work great though!

      • It was still so good, we just let it cook to perfection on slow cooker for 3 hours. No worries. I’ve already shared the recipe and plan on it being our go-to chili recipe. We ate it for 3 days and we both really don’t like leftovers so that says something LOL Thank you for the recipe!

      • That says a lot!! Thank you so much for the feedback and SO glad you enjoyed it!

  10. Thank You So Much for this awesome sharing! These look absolutely delicious!

  15. I’ve made this recipe countless times and it is always great, and the family loves it. Recently, I’ve been paying attention to what I eat and started counting calories, sodium, etc. I see you posted the nutrition info, and sodium says omg. Is that “OMG It is so high”, or is that zero mg? Given beans, and broth, I think it would be more than zero. So, is it omg it is high sodium?

  17. I almost never comment on recipes, but I have to come back here after using this recipe for over a year to say how fantastic it is. I make it in an hour or so for every large get together and follow it to a T (except sometimes I forget the bacon), and it is always, always a hit. Everyone gobbles it up. I had never even thought of putting the toppings on, but now, sour cream, cilantro, cheese and lime are always cut up along side. Thank you, thank you for making such a great recipe.

  28. I followed this recipe almost to the letter. I had to buy regulate diced tomatoes (fire roasted weren’t available) and I used dried minced garlic (1/2 Tbsp). It turned out so salty, we almost couldn’t eat it! What happened? 😞

    • Oh no! I’m so sorry! Are you sure you only did 2 teaspoons of Kosher salt? Everyone tastes saltiness differently, but we haven’t had this feedback from anyone else before. You could try using low sodium beef broth next time. The change in tomatoes and garlic shouldn’t have caused saltiness.

  33. I cooked the bacon in a separate pan, I doubled the recipe, grass fed beef on sale I used, organic canned Beans I used cause they were on sale as well, I added kosher salt more than recipe called for, i accidentally bought 1 roasted tomatoes diced oregano/garlic and 1 roasted regular- no time to exchange it, I used a tsp or more of cayenne pepper, an orange pepper because I had in the fridge 1 orange 1 red, I rinsed beans before adding, i added a handful of fresh cilantro at the last min and a squirt of liquid aminos

    I WON THE CHILI COOKOFF OUT OF 15 or so different chili’s!!!

  34. I always tell my neighbors when I’m cooking this that I’m cooking my Award Winning Chili! I love this and wonder what took me so long to discover bacon! I cheat a bit. The first time I made it, I had trouble with the burn notice, so now, I bake my bacon in the oven. I save the bacon fat and use it in the instant pot! (I act like this is a new idea!) I just love this chili! Thank you!

  35. How does this recipe work for dry beans? I really don’t see why this would be made with canned, that defeats the purpose of the IP

  36. It looks so yummy! I love the step-by-step instructions, making it an easy recipe to follow!

    • Thanks Alina! Hope you enjoy it!

      • We are expecting snow tonight, so it’s a perfect night for chili!
        This was so delicious, but my instant pot never did get to pressurize because I kept getting “burn”. Next time I will try what a previous post suggested and cook the bacon separately. 
        I also used 3 poblano peppers instead of a bell & jalapeño peppers because that’s what I had. They added great flavor. 

      • Thanks for the feedback Michelle! You could also try not stirring in the tomatoes and tomato paste. That has worked for other readers.

  42. I’m making this now in the instant pot…smells great.

  43. Please send me the recipe for the award winning instapot chili. Thank you ! 

  44. If doubling the recipe using an 8qt instant pot do you need to adjust the cooking time? 

  45. Just made this recipe yesterday for my first ever chili cook off contest I have ever entered at a local bar. I was also competing against my husband who is an amazing cook and had been perfecting his recipe for days……. I won!!! I followed the recipe exactly how it was printed . I didn’t get a burn message since I made sure to get every tiny piece of bacon out. I did put the tomato past on the very top and not mix it in until all the cooking was ton. Thanks for this great recipe 

  46. I am not a big fan of beans and used 3lbs of beef and 1 can of black beans as another reader suggested below. I put my IP on “beans/chili” mode and it came out pretty dry. I’m sure it’s from me changing the recipe. What can I do to fix this?

  47. This recipe is good except for that fact it tells your to cook your bacon on in the pot. Don’t do it unless you want your instant pot to burn. And screw up your pot and dinner. Cook the bacon separately. The person who wrote this recipe should know better! 

  48. Just won the office chili contest with a venison version of this… all the same but swapped venison in place of the beef.  It really was a great chili!

  49. This was good and made enough for two meals for our family of four. I added a can of corn 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!

  50. I’m so excited to bring this to my daughter’s band chili cook-off tonight! I made the crock pot version and it is OUTSTANDING! Thank you for the GREAT recipe!!! I also bought the ingredients for your “the soup” recipe.

  64. I am going to try this because I need a fast recipe and finally found the bottom of this page, but honestly it is hard to imagine I will visit another recipe from this site. Between the too many pictures and way too many ads and subheadings in your text, it was hard to follow. I know you are a mom and trying to collect a few pennies here and there with the ads, but at least on my phone’s screen, the overall effect was one of near unintelligibility. I’ve no doubt you will delete this comment and do not mind because it does not pertain to the actual recipe (which I genuinely am excited to try!!), but I really just thought you might not know how it reads if you are only seeing things from your blogging app interface.

  65. This is just delicious! I added a green and an orange pepper along with the red because I needed to use them up. I’ll be making this recipe again!


    Im just a fat guy that apprecieats a good recipe!!!!!!!! THANKSSSSSSSSS ITS WAAAAAAYYYYYY TOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!! I changed the beef for birds, because i can’t eat beef. other than that i followed the recipe to the tee. thanks again. I’m going to eat the whole thing at once!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahah jkjk 

  67. What spices do I use? And how much of each ingredient? Where can I find actual recipe instead of this video?

  68. Thank you for this AMAZING recipe!!! My meat-lover husband wanted less beans and more meat. So we used 3lbs of 93/7 ground beef and only one can of beans (black). We only used half of a red onion instead of the whole. Instead of the jalapeño, we used a small can of diced green chilies. Everything else, we kept exactly the same. Oh my gosh, the flavor was absolutely perfect. Spot on. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

  69. Very tasty. I put the tomato paste and diced tomatoes on top without stirring as tomatoes tend to burn when on the bottom. I only used 1 cup of beef broth as I didn’t want it to be too liquidy. It still was a bit soupy but 1 cup of liquid is a minimum. I’m not a bean fan so I only used the black beans. I added celery, 1 cup of corn and 2 TBSP of brown sugar. Turned out perfect. Thanks.

  70. Can this recipe be doubled in an 8 quart Instant Pot?

    • We’ve had several people say yes, other a few say it was a little too much. If it looks close, I would just eliminate one can of beans. Also, saute the meat in batches. Enjoy!

  72. Do you recommend adding another type of beef? Would that add to the flavor or texture profile? I’m curious because I’ve seen a few award winning chilis where they added sausage or other cuts of beef as well. Would love to hear your thoughts. And I’m making this recipe tomorrow for a chili cookoff!

    • We have found with the beef and bacon that the flavor is awesome, but you are welcome to change things up however you would like! We’ve had some people do half beef and half sausage. Other people have added chorizo or even venison.

  80. If I double the recipe will it fit in my 6 quart instapot?

  81. I made this last night….delicious! I put the tomato paste on top before cooking as others suggested. I have an 8 qt. Instant Pot. Cooked to perfection. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

  82. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I actually made it this weekend for a chili cook off we have with friends and WON! My first time ever entering a chili! I added some extra ground beef but other than that followed the recipe to a tee- and it was delicious! Will definitely be making this again!

  83. This chili is great! We made it tonight for the Superbowl!

    I had one question though, I see your nutritional info for it, but do you have the carb count for it?

    • Hey Jenny! Unfortunately our nutrition calculator doesn’t do carbs. Ugh! I’m so sorry. You can plug all the ingredients into an app like My Fitness Pal and it will tell you there.

  84. I followed the instructions and used the natural release for 15 minutes. It still turned out as soup, and I had to saute to reduce. in the end, not the biggest time saver.

    • Did you add tomato paste and drain the beans?

      • I made it tonight as written and had the same result! Yes to tomato paste and yes, drained the beans, and 20 min NR — opened the lid to see a great deal of liquid as the top layer! I simmered it off, added cooked rice after removing the keto dieter’s portion, and all was well. Great mix of flavors, but I’ll reduce the liquid to 1/5 c. next time and see if that helps.

      • I’m so glad you’ve found a way to make it just the way you like!

  85. Thank you for your chili recipe, our neighborhood had a chili cook off and I used your recipe and won, funny thing was this was my first ever attempt and cooking chili. Thank you so very much your chili is definitely award winning. 

  86. Won a chili cook-off with this recipe today. Truly “Award winning!”  Thank you!  My go-to recipe forever. 

  87. I made today for my husband & I. Delicious! February is my birthday month. So it was a great way to start my birthday month. I have 6 quart, & chose to use the manual button for 18 minutes as you suggested 18-20 minutes. I do have the chili button on my Instant Pot however it was my first time using that setting. & it automatically set to 30 minutes. Is that what I am suppose to do? I wasn’t sure since the 18-20 minute manual option was there. So is it 30 minutes if chili setting but 18-20 minutes if manuel? 

  88. I made this 3x now.  I followed the advice to put tomatoes and paste on top and not mix in.  I also used the bean/chili setting and cooked on low pressure.  No problem with the Burn notice.  Came out great!

  89. I followed this recipe nearly exact specifically liquid ingredients and it errored my instant pot. Award winning seems like a stretch. 

  90. I just made this and the flavor and taste was very good but overall the chili was a little watery.  Has this ever happened to you?  I did release the steam immediately, no natural release.  maybe next time I should do natural release.  Any other suggestions?

  91. I thought I was really good at making chili, until i tried this recipe. The best I’ve ever had….ever!

  95. I’m not a chili eater, but my husband loved it!  Did the recipe as written. More juice than to his liking, so added another can of beans and about a rounded cup diced carrot and celery (I hide veggies from him too).  I got a burn notice when I put it on for 10 more minutes. However, I just stirred it around, put in on LOW pressure cook for 10 minutes, and it finished fine…tasty! Next time, for added antioxidants, going to try another can or two of tomatoes minus the liquid.
