There are as many versions of chili as there are chili cooks. This one includes a signature flavor of the American Southwest: masa harina. The Mexican corn flour used for making tortillas and tamales, masa harina is made by grinding corn kernels that have been simmered in a slaked lime solution and then dried. It is sold in well-stocked food stores and in Latin markets. Added to the chili near the end of cooking, masa harina thickens the liquid slightly, giving it body, and imparts a subtle corn flavor.

Ingredients:

  • 5 Tbs. vegetable oil
  • 3 lb. beef chuck, ground for chili
  • 3 large yellow onions, finely chopped
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeño chili, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chili powder
  • 2 Tbs. ground cumin
  • 1 Tbs. ground oregano
  • 2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 cup lager-style beer
  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1 can (28 oz.) crushed tomatoes
  • 1 can (15 oz.) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (15 oz.) pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3 Tbs. masa harina
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions:

Set an electric pressure cooker to "brown" according to the manufacturer's instructions and warm 1 Tbs. of the oil until nearly smoking. Add half of the beef and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a colander placed over a bowl to drain off the fat. Repeat with 1 Tbs. of the oil and the remaining beef. Drain and set aside.

Warm the remaining 3 Tbs. oil in the cooker. Add the onions and sauté, stirring occasionally, until softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the jalapeño, chili powder, cumin, oregano and coriander, stir until well combined and cook for 1 minute more.

Add the reserved beef, the beer, stock and tomatoes and bring to a gentle simmer. Cover, set the pressure to "high" and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions. Release the pressure according to the manufacturer's instructions. Add the kidney and pinto beans and the masa harina. Simmer until the chili is slightly thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve in large bowls.
Serves 8 to 10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent and quick! I've had my pressure cooker (instapot) for 5 months now and I love it! This is the first chili I've made and it had great flavor. I made a few modifications based on what I had in hand. I halved the recipe and excluded the beer since I don't do gluten. Added a Serrano (with seeds) and Anaheim pepper instead of jalapeno and used a red onion. Delicious, healthy and will make again!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lost of flavor without a lot of fat! I have made this chili recipe several time in a conventional deep pot on top of the stove and in the slow cooker. But I just purchased a Cuisinart electric pressure cooker. While reading the cooking instruction it states to cook according to the mfg instructions. I went to the manual and couldn't find the timing anywhere in it, so where do you find this info? I'm a "bit frustrated" with your instructions as I find them incomplete, how much time am I to set the cooker for? Please help as it's my first time with and Electric PC

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent for Electric Pressure Cooker This was the first dinner I made in my Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cooker and I couldn't believe how quick and easy it was to make a chili in 30 minutes that tasted like it had been cooking all day! The masa harina also really helps make the dish thick and hearty!
