Shh! Here's an Instant Pot® Chili Recipe With a Secret Ingredient

A friend sent me a chili recipe with a secret ingredient and I was intrigued, to say the least. It had great reviews, so I decided to check it out (and made some of my own modifications).

We’d love to know what you think of the special ingredient (the last one). I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the depth of flavor both of these ingredients add. Serve this easy chili recipe with your favorite toppings like shredded cheese, jalapenos, sour cream, corn chips, oyster crackers, tortilla chips or chopped green onions.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4


Here’s how to make it:

  1. Set a 6-quart Instant Pot® to the normal sauté setting and add the extra virgin olive oil. Once oil is hot, add the ground meat, chili powder and 1 teaspoon kosher salt. Cook, stirring and breaking up the meat, until browned, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and onion and cook, stirring about 1 to 2 additional minutes. Add the tomatoes, beans, Worcestershire sauce and coffee or cocoa. Stir to combine. Lock the lid and set to pressure cook on high for 10 minutes.
  2. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release and wait until the quick-release cycle is complete. Unlock and remove the lid, being careful of potential steam.
  3. Taste and season with additional salt, if needed. Serve with garlic bread and top chili with shredded taco cheese, sour cream, jalapeños and any additional favorite chili toppings.

Love adding cocoa powder to chili. It adds a rich flavor, like mole sauce.
