Today my youngest one informed me that she love chili, but not chili with tomatoes in it because she hates “yuckys” (that’s what she calls tomatoes). I vaguely remember telling my parents the same thing when I was a kid – I don’t like tomatoes that much either. As I’ve gotten older I’ve come around and I find them nearly as offensive as I once did. Understanding my daughter’s distaste for tomatoes, I set out to make her a chili with no tomatoes.

Truthfully Mr. Salads4lunch doesn’t do well with cooked tomato products (crazy heartburn and stomach acid that keeps him up at night) so I knew that a tomato-free chili would make at least two of my family members happy.

To make this recipe you will need:

  • Olive oil
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Red Bell Pepper

How to Make Instant Pot Tomato-Free Chili

Making Tomato-Free Instant Pot Chili isn’t much different than any other chili. First you saute the veggies, then you brown the beef, add the spices, then add liquid, seal your instant pot and start the pressure cooking process. Because liquid doesn’t evaporate when cooking with an instant pot, after pressure cooking, you do a quick release, then turn the pressure cooker to saute for 5 minutes with the lid off to burn off the liquid. The secret to NOT burning your chili is to keep a watchful eye on it while sauteing, and to stir frequently.

Enjoy!

This recipe must be for some sort of bad tasting soup, THIS IS NOT CHILI! Spent the afternoon making this and it’s horrible. Thanks!

DO NOT USE THIS RECIPE! I tried this recipe and it's awful! The recipe calls for: 1 1/2 tablespoons onion powder 1 tablespoon smoked paprika 1 1/2 tablespoon oregano

These ingredients are WAY too much! I tried adding in other ingredients to balance out the paprika and ended up tossing this recipe in the trash. What a waste of ingredients!
