Smoky Instant Pot Chili

Smoky Instant Pot Chili

Winter weather always makes me crave warm savory food. The Instant Pot is a great for cozy meals. Set it & forget it while your working on other things. You can also make this dish on the stove top but with more effort. This chili is oil-free & packed with nutrients. So much fiber & delicious veggies. You can add as much or as little fresh veg & spice as you wish. This recipe is great for meal prepping or freezing.
