Instant Pot Chorizo Chili

It’s finally Fall!! That means soup and stew season! My family’s typical comfort food for fall and winter is hands-down —– drum roll…. C.H.I.L.I. Yes, even my kids love this spicy stew provided its eaten with lots and lots of rice to soak up all that yummy saucy goodness!

Seriously, we love chili so much that I have so may versions of this spicy stew in this blog. I don’t know how many exactly as of this writing but I’d say at least 5!! We just love to experiment and try many variations so that way our taste buds don’t get tired of the same old, same old recipe. For this version, we thought why not try using chorizo instead of plain ground beef? After all this Spanish-Mexican sausage is already full of spices and flavorings that lend itself beautifully to chili. It totally makes sense and certainly the result proves that it’s a delicious alternative to the usual chili meat! Enjoy!
