When I was a teenager and began cooking meals for my family, I would make chili using the slow cooker because it was an easy and inexpensive way to feed the 7+ people sitting around the table. I used canned beans, some ground beef, and a packet of chili seasoning.
After The Mister and married, I began making chili using soaked kidney beans. But with my hectic schedule, I’d sometimes forget to soak the beans and I would end up scrambling for something to fix for dinner instead of preparing chili.
No more! Using an electric pressure cooker, like an Instant Pot, we can have our favorite game day chili without presoaking the beans. Instant Pot No Soak Chili con Wiener is adapted from two vintage recipes and updated for the Instant Pot. I’ve made a video to show you how easy it is to make.
