    It is delicious I added 2 jalapeños and Mexican pintos instead of red kidney beans. I also used ancho chili powder 1T, green Chili Powder 1T, and red chili powder 1T instead of 3 Tablespoons of just red chilies.

    Excellent flavor and texture! I used double crushed tomatoes and meat and two tomato pastes. Cut down on beef broth by a cup. Added carrots and celery also. Instapot cooked this up in 30 mins!

    This turned out DELISH!!! I love chili and best of all the consistency was perfect. I like a thicker chili and since I didn’t have the diced tomatoes I used an additional can of the crushed. Perfect!! I will make again!
