Based on recipes that I have posted here, I think it’s no secret that I love my Instant Pot. I love the fact that it can shorten cup times considerably, which in our busy lives allows me to make fantastic meals in a fraction of the time.
And with it being winter I find I’m gravitating towards warm recipes like soups and chilis. This recipe makes for a fantastic weekly dinner as it features easy, and of course gluten-free, instant pot chili recipe for the seasoning palette that sure to please everyone!

But before I get into the recipe I wanted to let all of you know that I’ve added a new freebie to the blog. I’ve been working to put together a series of pantry labels for all of you. These labels will be available both as printable and as SVGs to be cut with a cricket or silhouette.
I hope to be adding more of them over the next month or two. There will be three different style of labels in varying complexity/size (affectionately called small, medium and large) with the small printable designs being available for free! I’ve gone ahead and posted the small design style for download here. If you have a Cricut or Silhouette, the small design should be out soon in small, inexpensive sets for purchase.
Don’t have a cutting machine but still want the vinyl labels? No problem! I will be making sets that can be shipped for free soon too.
Take a moment to stop by and grab the printable version, and let me know if there are any labels you’d like to see.
Just start with 2 pounds of your favorite ground beef. Are used 90% lean ground beef, but you could use higher fat ratio or even ground turkey. Using your sauté setting on your Instapot brown the beef and then add in onion until softened.
Toss in tomatoes and a can of tomato sauce. Personally I like using fire roasted put any type of work. After that I have the wonderful one of seasonings and then cover and cook using the manual setting for about 25 minutes.
One of the unique things about this chili’s flavor palette is the addition of cocoa powder in the spice mixture. It might seem like an unusual addition but cocoa actually pairs really well with chili powder, enhancing it’s flavor. In fact it’s thought to be a secret ingredient to Cincinnati Skyline chili recipe, something my husband is rather partial to as it’s his hometown.
I recommend topping the chili with freshly shredded cheddar cheese and green onions. Sour cream can be added of course, too. And a perfect side for this heart dinner? Cornbread, of course.
