Author Notes: If you’re looking for an easy, comforting and delicious vegetarian chili recipe, this is it!

My family loves chili! We make a gazillion versions of it , and use it in another gazillion ways- this one’s straight out of our weeknight chili collection. With a 5-minute prep, which includes opening 4 cans, putting this chili together is a breeze! Possibilities are endless with this dish. You can swap the beans with your favorite kind, add your favorite toppings- sour cream, cheese, jalapeños, spring onions, avocados and enjoy it as-is, or, use it as a topping for some amazing Chili Nachos, or, mix it with rice, wrap it in a tortilla and you have a Bean & Chili Burrito. During football season, you will always find a version of this on my table, every Sunday!

It also makes for a great potluck dish. I make it in my Instant Pot, cover it and take the whole pot along- set it to SAUTE to warm it up and serve it right out of the pot- cannot get easier than that.

This Chili can be made on the stove-top as well (instructions can be found in the Notes section at http://garammasalakitchen.com/weeknight-bean-chili-in-instant-pot).
