How to make Instant Pot black bean chili

Print this recipe
Keeping dried beans in the pantry is a great way to ensure that you always have the makings of a delicious and nutritious meal. Even better, if you have an Instant Pot, you can take them from dried to ready-to-eat in as little as 45 minutes. This recipe is a perfect example.
This black bean chili is enriched with ground beef, but leave the meat out to make it vegetarian. Served with all of the usual chili toppings such as shredded cheese, sour cream, pickled jalapeños and tortilla chips, it's a satisfying dish for game day, weeknight dinners or a potluck.
