Instant Pot Tex Mex Chili Recipe.

I finally got a hair up my butt, and made a yummy Instant Pot Tex Mex Chili! Yes, I’ve had my Instant Pot for a while now, but I’ve not ever really used it a lot like a should have. Well, Lo and Behold…I totally wasn’t in the mood to cook dinner tonight. I wanted the pain of cooking to be done and over with, as I seriously just did 6 loads of laundry, washed the dishes, and cleaned the house up a bit. But you know kids, there’s something about them that they just HAVE to eat at least 5 to 6 times a day. A DAY!

Then I was like…screw this. I’m totally using my Instant Pot to make some Tex Mex chili, yo! Yes, I actually said the word “yo” aloud. I’m showing my 90’s kids true colors. The 90’s were totally amazing. You’re welcome current generation!

But back to the food.
