How to Make Instant Pot Sweet Potato Chili Recipe

To make it, I add olive oil to the interior pot of my Instant Pot set on the saute setting. Then, I add in my diced onion and saute until the onion is just tender. Then, I add in my garlic, ground pork and ground beef.

I love the complexity of the pork and ground beef in this recipe, but you can certainly just use ground beef. You can also substitute the beef with ground turkey, if you prefer.

Once the meat has been browned, I add in my sweet potatoes. It always amazes me how quickly they cook to absolute perfection in the Instant Pot! Then, I stir in the celery, crushed tomatoes, Worcestershire sauce (or coconut aminos if you are following a Paleo or Whole-30 lifestyle), cumin and chili powder.

The chili is flavorful, with tender pieces of sweet potato and just the right amount of spiciness so that everyone can enjoy it. Of course, if you like a spicier chili, add a little more. I always like to have a container of chili powder on the serving table when I serve my chili so that people can add more to their individual liking.

Freezer Instructions:

Allow Sweet Potato Chili to cool completely and then portion into freezer-safe containers, removing as much air as possible. Store in the freezer for up to 3 months.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/2 pound ground pork
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 large sweet potato peeled and cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 3 celery stalks sliced

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce or coconut aminos
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

Directions

  1. Set the Instant Pot to the Saute setting. Add olive oil to the interior pot, followed by the diced onion. Saute until tender and then add minced garlic, ground pork, and ground beef.

  1. What a wonderful way to make chili, especially when it’s cold outside!

  2. This looks delicious!!
    How many servings are there in this recipe?
    Thanks!

  3. This looks delish… Can you please tell me what an instant pot is??? Thank you

  4. What is an Instant Pot?

  5. I thought it was just a little on the bland side, so I added some Chipotle sauce after the fact. And I might’ve used a little more sweet potato and cooked it just a tiny bit less or done something so the sweet potatoes were a tiny bit less soft. Love the idea though!

  6. Love this! Easy recipe & tastes great! I add a few shakes of Frank’s RedHot to mine! Thanks for sharing!

  7. This recipe looks delicious! I don’t know why I’ve never thought about adding sweet potatoes to my chilli!! I don’t like my chilli very spicy so good thinking to have the chilli powder on the table for others who may want their serving spicier! I bet kidney beans or any beans would be a nice addition! Great recipe!

  8. I made this last night and it turned out amazing!!! So flavourful! Thank you for this recipe. I left out the celery and the cumin (not a fan) and I added a bit more sweet potato. Just lovely!!

  9. This was my first instant pot recipe, ever! I can’t believe how soft the potatoes got! Great recipe- thank you!

  10. I was gonna ask what an hot pot is, but saw it answer. Thanks, I’ve been looking for some pressure cooker recipes

  11. I loved this recipe! Perfect Whole 30 meal that my whole family loved. And bonus for using the Instant Pot!

  12. Sorry this may be a silly question Robyn ( I’m a rookie instant pot user ),but you don’t drain the grease from the meat? This looks delicious and easy to make!! Thank you!
