INSTANT POT CHILI Meal Prep│Easy LOCK-DOWN Recipe (using pantry basics)

Today we are making Instant Pot Chili. This is a super simple recipe where you can use anything you already have inside your pantry and freezer. The world may seem scary right now, and this global lock-down is greatly affecting people all over the world. There are many unknowns at the moment, and normal everyday routines are disrupted. We may not be able to control many of the things that are happening right now, but one thing I know is that we still need nutritious meals to nourish our bodies.

This recipe comes together very quickly, and you can easily swap out ingredients for what you already have on hand. If you don’t have the fresh produce I’m using like an onion or pepper, you can use dried spices and/or a can of peppers. If you don’t have any meat you can use beans or legumes instead. If you are using dried beans, I recommend soaking them first. I make sure I rinse all my legumes really well also prior to using. If you only have canned beans or lentils, use them instead! If using all canned products, reduce the cooking time to 7-11 minutes. If you are using a mixture of canned and dried, stick with the 20 minute cook time of this recipe.
