Chili Bean Soup Instant Pot/Slow cooker Simple

Its FALL! I love fall, it is my favorite time of the cooking season. I love to make soups and stews around this time.

This past week my neighborhood had a festive fall chili bean cook off block party. All the neighbors round up and block apart of the neighborhoods street. We all live in gated community so its not to much of hassle to block off a corner. Plus everyone there basically lives on that corner.

My kids truly had a blast playing all the neighborhood kids and we got to mingle with a few neighbors we never met before. The fun part for the adults is to taste all the delicious and tasty homemade chili that the fellow neighbors made. We simply labeled each slow cooker, in my case it was my Instant Pot. There were 9 entrees in total and I was #8.

My chili bean soup didn’t win but trust me there was a lot of competition among my fellow neighbors. Even I had a hard time picking my favorite Chili bean soup. We all bonded over the spicy tongues we had and full belly we sported. I went back about 4 time and tried each one because, one they were all so tasty, and two I just couldn’t decide which one I liked. The winner ended up being lucky #5, which made me happy because that is the one I voted for!!

Simple Instant Pot Chili Bean Soup

I am a procrastinator, so even though I knew about this chili bean cook off I literally prepped everything 2 hours before, shopping and cooking! So I hopped in my car and drove to the store. I knew I wanted to add a little twist to it so I thought to myself “how about chorizo”! Oh and bacon… Yes bacon.. Bacon makes everything better!


I went in the store knowing I wanted to have a chili bean base with those spicy and tasty ingredients. At the top of my head I knew a good chili soup has tomatoes, so I grabbed a can, then I  figured peppers would be a good veggie to have in this dish since the sweet, yet spicy peppers can give this soup a nice kick. lastly I had to grab the star of the show which is beans!


30 min later I was back at home. I put my Instant Pot on the saute function and browned away my meats and chorizo. Then I popped open my frozen peppers bag and tex mex spices and cooked a bit more with the meats. Once the meats were done browning. I simply opened my cans of beans and tomatoes and poured them into my Instant Pot. Put the Instant Pot pressure cooker lid on and then set my functions. I used the soup function and set it for 30 min.


Its a literally and set it and forget about it instant pot recipe. I went on marry way to get my kids ready and myself for our neighborhood cook off. Once I was done getting ready I check onit and it was all cooked and done! BOOM THAT SIMPLE!


Chili Bean Soup Taste Testing

Now it was time for me to test the recipe myself since I truly never tried it and totally made it up at the drop of a whim. I tasted it along with the kids and I thought; “hey this is a very tasty soup with all the right spice you need in a chili soup”. Its hardy and delicate of spice! So far so good. The family approved it was chili cook off worthy!

Off we went to the chili cook off.  My recipes was #8 out of 11 entries so the chances were pretty slim but I loved the process of making it. I lost to a very delicious pulled pork chili, which was even my favorite! I did love experimenting with this recipe and enjoying all the other ones I tasted.

This recipe I  highly suggest you make this recipe. Its perfect for football season, family potluck, or a hearty family dinner. Making it in the Instant Pot makes this even easier to make so there is NO EXCUSES!

    This chili looks delicious! I’m always up for a piping hot bowl of chili or soup during the colder months. And I love the addition of the chorizo – I’ve added sausage to my chili recipe in the past and it made it extra yummy. Can’t wait to try your recipe!

    I am eager to give soup a try in the Instant Pot. I am, at the same time, worried a bit, because part of the charm of making soup is going back to the stove to stir and taste. I am sure it will all be fine!

    I have a lot of bean soup once the weather starts cooling down. I tend to gravitate more towards lentils, but any beans will do. Your recipe looks so warming and yummy. And I love that you went into the chili cook-off with such a great attitude. Because life is supposed to be about the fun of it all.

    I really need to start using my Instant Pot more often. I use my slow cooker a couple of times a week, particularly in the colder seasons, but I haven’t gotten enough experience with my InstaPot yet to feel really comfortable with it. This looks like an easy recipe though – I will have to give it a try!
