This Instant Pot Vegetarian Chili recipe is so good that I make this meal at least once a week! Ever since I got the instant pot I have been making this easy and healthy vegetarian chili once a week! Even without meat, it is still super hearty and delicious!

  6. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  7. 1/4 teaspoon pepper (I prefer white pepper)
  8. 1 small can diced green chilis
  9. 3 15(ish) ounces of beans, rinsed and drained (I like to use 1 can of black beans, 1 can of kidney beans and 1 can of pinto beans as a nice, tasty variety)

  11. 1 cup frozen corn
