Cost: Recipe $8.83 / Serving $1.47


  • 1 lb ground beef 80/20 ($3.37)
  • 1 small onion, diced ($0.70)
  • 3 cans (14.5 ounce) diced tomatoes ($2.16)
  • 3 cans kidney beans, drained ($2.16)
  • 2 tablespoon taco seasoning ($0.44)


  • Set your Instant Pot to Saute mode with a timer of 10 minutes.
  • Saute the ground beef and onions until the ground beef is fully cooked and the onions are soft. Drain grease.
  • Add in the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine.
  • Close the lid and seal the valve. Set to High Pressure for 5 minutes and allow a 5 minute Natural Pressure Release before manually releasing the rest.
  • Stir the chili and serve warm with your favorite sides and toppings.


You can use taco seasoning or chili seasoning in this 5 ingredient chili recipe. I chose to use a storebought packet of McCormick chili seasoning, but you can use homemade blends, storebought, or your favorite taco/chili seasoning combination.
If you aren't a fan of kidney beans, other canned beans like black beans, pinto, or chili beans work great. You can even mix and match for more variety in your bowl.


Leftover chili can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-5 days. Just reheat until warmed through before eating and top with your favorite toppings.
