Counting my cookies… & Eating them too!

Sweet and Spicy Beef and Beer Chili – Pressure Cooker


This is my favorite chili recipe of all time!  I used to make this simmered on low all day in my crockpot but recently tried it in my Instant Pot pressure cooker and found it was just as delicious but ready in under an hour!

The combination of unusual flavors like beer, coffee, cocoa powder and cumin make this a memorable chili that will stand out at your next “chili cook off”!



Sauté the onions and garlic until softened, about 3-5 minutes.  Add ground meats and cook until lightly browned.  You can use the sauté feature on your pressure cooker if you are using an Instant Pot that has that feature, otherwise just do this on the stove, then transfer to your pressure cooker.

Combine all of the ingredients in your pressure cooker.  Cook on the Beans/Chili setting for the default time, or 30-35 minutes manual.  Allow to natural pressure release for 10-15 minutes.

If using a crockpot, cook on low for 6-8 hours.
