Instant Pot Asian Chili

Instant Pot Asian Chili

We used adzuki beans because of their Asian roots. Feel free to use your favorite canned bean in place of adzuki. For a milder chili, remove the seeds from your jalapeño before dicing.

If you do not have an Instant Pot you can cook this on your stovetop by sautéing as recipe instructs and cooking chili in a covered pot for 1 hour and 20 minutes on low heat.
