Quick Keto Chili Recipe Made in the Pressure Cooker

I love this Quick Keto Chili Recipe that’s made in the pressure cooker!!  I have an Instant Pot 6 quart and I use it so much.  I’ve had it for a long time and I swear it’s one of my favorite kitchen appliances. This baby even travels with me when we spend time out at the lake in our 5th wheel camper.  I have the Instant Pot 6 quart 7 in 1 Duo model.  It’s perfect for our family of four.  Do you remember that time I made Lobster Tails in the Pressure Cooker?!

Back before I started my own Ketogenic Diet journey (gosh, I hate that word diet because it’s really a full-on lifestyle for me) I used to make the most delicious Wendy’s Copycat Chili recipe.  I would serve that chili with a side of sweet cornbread or I would serve it in a big bread bowl.  I’m so happy to have learned the keto way of life.  Because even though I used to love that recipe, I am very happy with my Quick Keto Chili recipe and I am happy to serve it up with my favorite Keto Biscuits recipe too!  I’m not missing a thing!  Keto for life, baby! 

UPDATE:  We found the BEST Keto Cornbread recipe to pair with this Keto chili!  Try it!  You will love it.  It’s not made with cornbread but it doesn’t have any corn it in!  Love that!

Why Add Unsweetened Cocoa Powder to a Keto Chili Recipe?

I’ve gotten a lot of questions about the unsweetened cocoa powder ingredient I added in my Keto chili recipe and I’m a bit surprised.  I honestly thought everybody add this ingredient in their chili.  This is a technique that I learned a long, long time ago from my grandma.  She always added unsweetened chocolate to some dishes that are savory because it intensifies and enhances the flavors of the other spices in such a delightful way.  I won’t ever make this Keto chili recipe without it.  It’s such a big difference and I swear, once you try it, you won’t ever go back.  Promise!
