In case I failed to mention it, I'm beyond in love with my Instant Pot. I have the DUO Plus 60; and I use it everyday!

Chili was definitely up there on my list of things to develop using the Instant Pot; and I could not be more pleased with this first IP chili creation!

It is subtly sweet, spicy, salty, tangy -- it has such deep and beautiful flavors that make it great on its own or served alongside taco night, or as the topping to your baked potatoes. The options are endless. It is versatile, makes great leftovers and is oh SO delicious!

If you aren't all that familiar with millet, millet is a seed that is: high in fiber, high in magnesium, high in zinc, high in potassium, raises serotonin levels, high in protein, high in B vitamins, and has excellent heart protecting properties, helps prevent diabetes, and is great for gut health! I adore millet.

Combine millet with nutritious pinto beans, veggies and spices and you have one heck of a healthy and tasty meal!

I sincerely hope you love it just as much as we do!
