I make this chili every Halloween and we love to eat the leftovers the next day too. If you’re not into leftovers, feel free to half this recipe.

    This was delicious! Wanted to try a new recipe to switch things up and this did not disappoint! Thanks for sharing, Amber!

    1. Hi Shawna, yes, just brown the meat, onion, garlic, bell peppers on saute mode, reduce liquid to 4 cups, and cook 15 minutes on high pressure.
