If you can’t find andouille, a spiced and smoked pork sausage prized by Cajun cooks, kielbasa or another smoked sausage can be substituted. You can also trade out the kidney beans for cannellini or pinto beans, if you like.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (7 oz./220 g) dried red kidney beans
  • 1 Tbs. olive oil
  • 3/4 lb. (375 g) andouille sausage, halved lengthwise then cut crosswise into 1/2-inch (12-mm) pieces
  • 1 lb. (500 g) ground beef
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbs. chili powder
  • 1 Tbs. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. smoked paprika
  • 1 can (10 oz./310 g) Mexican-style diced tomatoes with juice
  • 1 can (14 1/2 oz./455 g) crushed tomatoes with juice
  • 4 green onions, white and light green portions, thinly sliced
  • Cooked long-grain white rice for serving (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves for garnish (optional)

Directions:

Pick over the beans, discarding any grit or misshapen beans, then rinse, place in a bowl with water to cover, and let soak for at least 8 hours or up to overnight.

In an Instant Pot set to Sauté, warm the olive oil. Add the sausage and cook, stirring occasionally, until browned, about 4 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the sausage to a plate. Add the ground beef to the pot, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to breaking up the meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 4 minutes. Using the slotted spoon, transfer the beef to the plate with the sausage. Add the onion to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until it begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper, celery and garlic and cook, continuing to stir, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in the chili powder, cumin, paprika and 1 tsp. salt, mixing well. Drain the beans and add to the pot along with the cooked sausage and beef, the diced and crushed tomatoes, and 2 cups (16 fl. oz./500 ml) water.

Lock the lid in place and turn the valve to Sealing. Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook at high pressure for 30 minutes.

When the pressure cooking is complete, turn the valve to Venting to manually release the steam. When the steam stops, carefully remove the lid and stir in the green onions and season with salt and pepper.

Spoon the rice into bowls, then ladle the chili over the top. Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve. Serves 6.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Twist on Chili! Excellent twist on your standard chili recipe. The Andouille sausage is a great add and makes for a slightly different flavor profile from every day chili. I couldn't wait overnight for the dry beans so used a can of red kidney and a can of black bean (drain and rinsed). I didn't have a green bell pepper so I used half poblano and half red bell. The slightly hot and sweet combination was fantastic. I also used a 28oz can of Mexican-style diced tomatoes in place of the 10oz and 14.5oz tomatoes. I reduced the water to 1 cup. I know that sounds like I really altered the recipe but I really didn't. I just substituted what I had which increased the heat but only slightly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very tasty This recipe is very good. It’s got a lot of spiciness, which I enjoy. I have made it twice now and it gets better with age.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shocked at how delicious this is. I've made a lot of chili, and tried this as a newbie to Instant pot, wanting to follow a recipe. However, "don't look back, and look no further", far as I'm concerned. Beans were creamy, spices perfectly balanced. Perfect texture. I used Aidell's andouille sausage: not extremely smokey, but genuine (chunky versus homogeneous), and Muir Glen's fire roasted diced tomatoes with chilis, since I couldn't find "Mexican" diced tomatoes, and, soaked recently bought beans. 10% fat ground beef. Not sure the effect of doing this with pressure, but the instant pot used with this recipe created an exceptional chili.
