IMG_1878.jpeg

1 lb ground grass-fed beef, turkey or chicken
1 lb spicy Italian sausage
1 green pepper, chopped
½ yellow onion, chopped
1 (26 oz) can of chopped tomatoes in juice
1 tbsp chili powder
½ tbsp ground cumin
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup water
Optional: white beans (can omit if want to keep it keto) and shredded cheese

Instant Pot Instructions:
Press the saute button.
Add ground meat and sausage.
Cook until browned.
Press warm/cancel button.
Add the other ingredients (except cheese) to the Instant Pot and mix.
Cover and lock lid (make sure steam valve is closed).
Press the chili/bean button (30 minutes).
After 30 minutes the pot will move to the “keep warm” mode so you can allow the pressure to release naturally or you can use the quick release (be careful as steam can burn. I cover with a towel).
Serve in bowls with the option to top with shredded cheese.
