Serves: 6
  • 6 slices of Bacon, chopped
  • 1 Sweet Onion, sliced
  • 1 lb. Ground Beef
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 2 Sweet Potatoes, peeled & chopped into small cubes
  • 1 can Black Beans in seasoned sauce
  • 1 can Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes (14.5 oz)
  • 2 Bell Peppers, diced
  • 1 can Diced Green Chilies (4.5 oz)
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth
  • 2 tbsp. Ground Cumin
  • 1 tbsp. Chili Powder
  • S+P to taste
  1. Set the Instant Pot to Sauté. Add chopped bacon and sauté until browned, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the bacon.
  2. Add sliced onions and sauté in bacon fat until softened. Add garlic and ground beef and continue to sauté for a few minutes to brown the meat. No need to cook all the way through, the meat will finish cooking when you turn on the pressure setting. Drain excess fat, if needed.
  3. Add sweet potatoes, black beans, diced tomatoes, bell peppers, green chilies, chicken broth, and spices. Stir to combine.
  4. Set the Instant Pot to 12 minutes on high pressure. Once finished, turn the vent to allow pressure to release for at least 5 minutes.
  5. Carefully remove top and serve with desired toppings.
