This 15 minute Instant Pot vegan chili recipe is made with simple pantry ingredients for an incredibly quick meal. Altogether, this recipe takes less than 15 minutes to make and it all comes together in the Instant Pot for easy cleanup.
This freaky-fast and crazy-good chili is the first Instant Pot recipe I've shared. Because apparently, I've been living under a rock. But I'm here. I've arrived to the Instant Pot party and I'm never leaving. After the first time we used it, we put our rice cooker and crockpot up for sale. Don't need 'em anymore. The Instant Pot does the job of both devices, plus about 10 others. For all my small kitchen peeps out there (hi, same. 🙋), this thing is a necessity.
Now that I've concluded my love letter to the Instant Pot, let's talk about this chili. In the planning stages, this was originally going to be a "Mexican Lasagna Soup." But that's not really how it turned out. The more we played with the recipe, the more it tasted, looked, and smelled like chili. I was craving chili and the heart wants what it wants. So this became a glorious, crazy simple Instant Pot vegan chili recipe that takes 15 MINUTES to make.
How is that possible? Well, first, we sauté the onion in the Instant Pot. Then we add everything else into the pot and cook for 3 minutes. Then, we just release the pressure and let rest for 10 minutes. That's it. That's the entire process.
What this chili lacks in prep, cook, and cleanup time, it makes up for in the flavor department. Loaded with smoky spice, beans and tomato goodness, and big bites of noodle – all things that I'd bet you already have in your pantry. Could this recipe be any easier? Any more weeknight friendly? I think not.
Don't even bother asking what took me so long to get on this Instant Pot bandwagon. Just welcome me to the club and tell me your favorite things to cook with this magical device. Ok? Ok. Also, make this recipe in your Instant Pot and tell me what you think.Print
