    So far thisbis a tremendous dissapointment. Came out like very very bland beef stew… very very watery… Im cooking it down now… Beef is tender but tasteless.

    Still looking for a chili recipe

    Just reading the recipe, there are some major ingredients missing. Chili needs chili powder, garlic, and cumin. If you make this and the end product is bland, try adding those for the classic flavor you seek.

    My husband and i loved it. I did read other reviews before making it so i added some spices to it. It was great! Will be a make again dish!

    Added Rotel tomatoes and chili beans with chili powder, smoked chipolte chile seasoning and 1/2 can of chipolte peppers in abodo sauce – yummy!

    Easy to make but came out quite liquidy. Added a little corn starch mixture to thicken it up and it worked well. The spices in the recipe arent enough but thats what making it your own is all about. A quick and easy dinner for those cold winter nights (cut back on the cumin).

    I added chili powder, garic powder and cumin after reading the reviews. Also thickened it with corn starch. So glad I did – it was good!

    Doubled the recipe, but added a pound of ground beef as the extra meat. Based on other reviews, added chili powder, garlic powder, and ground cumin.

    Honestly I’m not sure why this recipie is even listed. There is no spices whatsoever so the chili came out very bland.

    It was tasty as is but I made some small modifications to make it even better:
    Add 3 10.5 oz cans of diced tomatoes (habiñero, green chilles & chipotle).
    Also add in 1-2 Tbsp chili powder some cumin, some mexican oregano. Add drained can(s) kidney and/or black beans after release.
    Thicken with cornstarch slurry at end on saute ~2-3 minutes.

    Perfect as a base recipe. I added a chilli pot seasoning from jd seasonings and cunky carrots/potatoes to bulk it out .

    I recommend sauting the onions with the beef stew meat. It gave ours a delicious flavor and the meat was very tender. I would also recommend adding 2 tablespoons of corn starch, we found the base very watery when it was finished cooking, but flavorful. We added black beans, used Rotel, and added fresh jalapeno once it was cooked as a garnish. We will definitely make this again.

    For the best flavor the beef should be browned first to achieve the malliard reaction and then seasoned prior to pressure cooking

    Satisfying meal for those on keto diet. Easy to make in the instant pot. But I think of it more as stew with a tomato base as opposed to chili. Will make it again.

    Loved it made in 30 minutes and added adobe sauce and chipotle with white beans. Lived it and will switch to this as our new chili recipe!
