All I wanted for Christmas this year was an Instant Pot, and I’m so glad I got it! In fact, I cheated and used it to make some great stuff on Christmas Eve. If you haven’t heard of Instant Pot, it is a magical electric pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, and yogurt maker in one. You can also use it to saute before you apply pressure or let it cook slow and low! Being the techie I am, I of course has to get the Instant Pot Smart, complete with Bluetooth capability and app.
After the standard Instant Pot water test, I made a great sweet potato and carrot soup, and some rice. One of the things which had me the most excited about the instant pot was the prospect of Instant Pot Chili. Who doesn’t love chili, especially when it can be cooked in a fraction of the time?
Lately, I’ve been a huge fan of Chicken Chili., and I figured I would give it a go in my Instant Pot. It took me a while to warm up to the idea of Chicken Chili, but once I made it, I was hooked. As a bonus, I used my Vitamix to chop all the vegetables and make the ground chicken chunks a little smaller. As a bonus, this Instant Pot Chicken Chili is also gluten free, dairy free, and free of the top 8 and 11 allergens.
