Warm, comforting Pressure Cooker Triple Bean Chili (AKA Instant Pot) is the perfect cool weather meal. Packed with fiber, nutrients and covered in cheese and sour cream, just the way I like it!
Before we jump in to my all time favorite Pressure Cooker Triple Bean Chili recipe, let me provide you with a link to the scariest moment of my life (I’ve jumped out of airplanes and bungee jumped off bridges my friends, and it doesn’t even compare!). I had my first TV appearance last week on KSL Studio 5 and I would love for you to check it out so you can compare how far I’ve come when I score my life’s dream of a Rachael Ray segment.
Have I ever told you Rachael Ray offered to put me on the show when I was 6 months pregnant with twins for a bra fitting segment? Naturally, I burst into laughter and tears and turned it down. Anyways, check it out and know I had to start somewhere! I had my sisters by my side to keep me from hyperventilating before the show and to keep me from passing out after. Power to the Sisterhood! Now, back to chili!
With cooler weather upon us (hallelujah!), I’m elated to start cranking out big hot bowls of soup, stew, chili, ramen, etc. Correct me if I’m wrong, but are not Electric Pressure Cookers like the Instant Pot and Fagor Lux Multicooker just made for cranking out these steaming bowls of deliciousness!? I can sense you all nodding, so I will share one of my faves-Pressure Cooker Triple Bean Chili covered in cheese, sour cream, and lots of corn chips!
While I do remember being offered chili as a child before I went out to earn some hard-earned trick or treat candy, I also remember eating the cheese off the top and praying that I wouldn’t have to eat the rest before I could run out the door. At some point my mom gave up on chili and started ordering pizza.
Well I’m bringin’ it back! Cuz nothin’ would make me happier than seeing my kids fill up on a nutritious bowl of beans before they stuff loads of candy in their mouths. Somewhere in my mind of reality denial, that definitely evens things out.
I can guarantee you that whipping up this flavorful, chunky bowl of chili will take you less time then running out to get pizza (at least if you live out in the boonies like me, if not, just roll with me here).
PS: Don’t forget the cornbread! Our families favorite is this Zucchini Cornbread from Mel’s Kitchen Cafe. I make a few changes – I use whole wheat flour, 1 cup flour to 1 cup cornmeal, and 1/4 cup sugar, It’s amazing!
Top it however you like, my personal favorite being cubes of cheese (just how mama did it), sour cream, and these amazing corn chips from Trader Joe’s ❤, or of course use good ol Fritos (the chili flavor would be amazing) if you don’t live near a Trader Joe’s. Perfect for Halloween night and any night, Pressure Cooker Triple Bean Chili to the rescue!
