Chili and cornbread together is one of my all-time favorite meals; in fact, the whole family loves it. Of course, easy Instant Pot chili is even better because it makes dinner prep that much simpler.

Back in the day we used to make a vegetarian chili using soy crumbles. I'm not sure what I was thinking. My guys really didn't like soy crumbles, but I'd “heard” they were healthier.

I've since come to find out that soy is really not that good for you, especially when you have thyroid issues (as I do). And to be quite honest, we love our meat.

We eat more of a low carb, high fat diet these days (most of the time… some of us still get a few carbs in). And ground beef is now a healthy addition to our Instant Pot chili.

We've been making this chili for awhile. I personally love a nice skillet cornbread with this chili.

And we've been known to serve it with tortilla chips if we don't have cornbread.

But for the most part, we enjoy it with a dollop of sour cream and a bit of shredded cheddar. Sometimes I even use this chili to make the best loaded chili cheese fries.
