I love to stretch protein, as far as I can!
And that’s why I love to combine meat proteins and plant proteins – like beans and chickpeas.
Chickpeas make a great and hearty addition to any beef based chili and this one is a family favorite. Plus, I adore how the Instant Pot “infuses flavor” so deeply – by the way it uses heat and pressure to cook everything together. People ask be all the time why I love my Instant Pot, and my answer isn’t “because it’s so fast.” My answer is always related flavor infusion and preciseness in cooking the meal inside. 🙂
This is a filling and hearty chili sure to make your family’s heart and tummies smile!
