Instructions
  1. In a large bowl, stir cornbread mix, eggs and milk until just combined. Batter will be lumpy.

  3. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function on the Instant Pot. Add ground beef and brown until no pink remains.
  4. Add drained and rinsed beans, undrained tomatoes and chili seasoning. Stir to combine.
  5. Insert a tall trivet or riser into the pot.
  6. Carefully lower the bundt pan onto the riser using a foil sling. The bottom of the pan should not be in contact with the chili mixture. Cover the cornbread loosely with foil–do not seal.
  7. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  8. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 20 minutes.
  9. When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  10. Carefully remove the cornbread from the pot using the foil sling and allow to rest for 5 minutes, then gently loosen with a small spatula and invert onto a serving plate.
  11. Stir chopped fresh spinach into chili just before serving (optional).
  12. Serve chili and cornbread hot. Garnish chili with cheese if desired.
