This delicious chili will keep you warm all winter long!



1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 white onion; diced
2 lbs ground beef or chicken
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder
3 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 tablespoon cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1 cup broth
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper


Turn your pressure cooker (we use a Ninja Foodi but this is perfect for your Instant Pot also) to saute mode.
Add in olive oil and onions.
Saute for 2 minutes. Add in meat or meatless crumbles. Cook meat thoroughly.
Add in tomato sauce and stir. Add in cocoa, soy sauce, paprika, cumin, chili powder, salt, cayenne, and cracked black pepper. Stir well.

Serve with jalapenos, sour cream, shredded cheese, low point bread and crackers, or whatever your heart desires!
