This is simple but delicious Instant pot Vegetarian chili recipe. Its made quickly in the Instant Pot. Hearty quinoa and Kidney Beans with plenty of vegetables means this dish is super healthy dish and can stand on its own for dinner. If you are making this vegan, just leave off the cheese and sour cream and it’s vegan.
This dish is super filling, warm and little bit spicy. This chili does carry a little heat from the Serrano Chile, but it’s not very spicy. You could leave out or use less.
