Servings: 4 people
- 3-4 ribs organic celery chopped
- 1 large organic bell pepper (whatever color you prefer) chopped
- 4 cloves organic garlic minced
- 1 medium-large organic jalapeno chopped optional
- 32 ounces organic dried beans (I do a mix of red kidney, pinto, and black beans) pre-soaked for 8-12 hours
- 15 ounces Muir Glen organic diced tomatoes
- 2 tbsp Muir Glen organic tomato paste
- 6-8 cups CRU's Homemade Veggie Broth
- 1-1.5 tbsp organic chili powder
- 1 tsp organic red pepper flakes optional but recommended
- 1 tsp organic garlic powder
- 1 tsp organic onion powder
- 1 tsp organic cumin
- 1 tsp organic cayenne pepper optional
- Himalayan pink salt to taste
- organic black pepper to taste

- organic green onions optional
- handful vegan cheese optional
- organic jalapenos (pickled or fresh) optional

- Soak your beans for at least 8 hours. If you can do 12, I highly recommend that. Change the water on the soaking beans at least 3 times. Cook the beans in the instant pot on the meat/stew or bean/chili button. 40 minutes of high pressure cooking. Remove beans and allow them to cool. If you want to use canned beans for a really fast meal...you can do that too!
- In the instant pot, add the celery, onions, bell pepper, and jalapeno. Saute (use the saute button on the instant pot) until tender. Add the garlic into the saute and saute until fragrant.
- Add the diced tomatoes, tomato paste, rinse and drain the beans for the chili (this gets rid of any other gas bubbles & troubles), veggie broth, and spices.
- Select the soup/broth, meat/stew, or bean/chili button (depending on what model you have), and let it cook for the allotted time.
- Once it has depressurized, take the lid off and allow it to cool. Add to your favorite chili bowl, add some toppings and enjoy!
