Make this hearty two-meat chili recipe in your RICARDO electric pressure cooker or Instant Pot.



  1. Place the kidney beans in a bowl. Generously cover with water and let soak for 12 hours or overnight at room temperature. Add water as needed to ensure the beans remain covered. Rinse and drain.
  2. Preheat the pressure cooker on the Sauté function for 2 minutes. Brown the pork in the oil. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside on a plate.
  3. Brown the beef in the pressure cooker, breaking it up with a wooden spoon and adding more oil as needed. Season with salt and pepper. Add the onion, jalapeño, garlic and spices. Cook for 3 minutes while stirring. Add the kidney beans, pork, tomatoes and broth. Cover and select the Bean function. Set the machine to cook for 35 minutes.
  4. Let the pressure release naturally (about 15 minutes), and remove the lid. Adjust the seasoning and add the cayenne, to taste.
  5. Serve over rice, with corn chips or as a filling for baked potatoes.


The dried red beans can be replaced with 1 can (19 oz/540 ml) of red kidney beans. In this case, reduce the chicken broth to ½ cup (125 ml) and select the Meat function instead of the Bean function.
