Instant Pot Texas Beef Brisket Chili

Texas style chili featuring tender moist chunks of delicious beef brisket served in a soup of infused flavors will put a fabulous hearty meal on the table. We really love our chili and we love trying new recipes. This bean-less recipe features authentic southwestern flavors that still makes my mouth water just thinking about how succulent the brisket turns out. With this recipe you can vary the heat of the pepper. If you prefer to capture more subtle flavors you may want to use the mild pepper that is recommended in the instructions. I prefer a bit of heat and this recipe also provides just that. The soup is fairly light compared to a traditional bean chili. I would suggest serving with crackers, toast or enjoy as my husband does, with fresh scratch made cornbread.

If you love chili and love to try new and different styles, then I recommend watching the video and following the instructions below. This recipe is good on any occasion and will be a hit with your friends and family alike. This chili also keeps well when refrigerated and is perfect for reheating later as the flavor becomes more enhanced through the natural magic of marination. The cool weather outdoors just seems warmer when you heat your soul with a comforting foodlicious bowl of Texas Beef Brisket Chili.
