Author Notes

This is NOT one of those recipes that claims to be a “30 minute meal” but actually takes more like 90 minutes once you factor in prep and cleaning. The prep for this three bean chili is super easy and the cook time is literally 5 minutes. No joke, you can throw this bean chili together in 20 minutes, including clean-up! It’s literally so easy to make a toddler could do it. Joel loves helping to rinse the beans and dump all the veggies into the instant pot. This saucy bean base is so adaptable you can serve it over rice, as tacos, as a filling for quesadillas. So many delicious varieties. Our favorite is as a taco bowl topped off with a slightly runny egg. Yum! Here’s how to make it.. —Fam to Table
