If you want to use dried beans in this three bean chili. You will need to make the beans first before you add them to the chili. Dried beans are an inexpensive way to make this chili and you can control the flavors and sodium in the beans.

Is Three Bean Soup Vegetarian?

With this version of three bean soup, I am using ground sirloin, which means it is not vegetarian. You can easily eliminate the beef ground the recipe and make this a vegetarian/vegan. You will want to make sure that the beans you are using do not include any meat products, like lard, in order to make this a vegetarian meal.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 pounds ground sirloin
  • 1 large sweet onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 can red beans
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 can Ranch style beans
  • 2 large tomato sauce
  • 1 can tomato paste
  • 2 cans stewed tomatoes
  • 3/4 cup Ketchup
  • 2 Tablespoons Chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon Cumin
  • 1 Tablespoon coarse ground Garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 2 Tablespoons Brown sugar
  • 2 cups filtered water

Instructions
 

  • Press the Saute button on the Instant Pot, and place the ground sirloin in the Instant Pot, and cook the sirloin until it's completely done, and golden brown.
  • Remove the cooked sirloin to a paper towel lined plate.
  • Add the chopped onion to the Instant Pot, and saute until it's caramelized - or golden brown.
  • Add the minced garlic, and cook for 2 minutes. Turn off the Saute setting.
  • Drain the beans, and rinse in a colander under cold water.
  • Add the cooked sirloin back in the Instant Pot, and add the red beans, black beans, and Ranch style beans.
  • Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, Stewed tomatoes, Ketchup, Chili powder, Cumin, garlic salt, seasoned salt, and brown sugar.
  • Stir all ingredients well to blend.
  • Add 2 cups of water, and stir again.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, until it beeps and locks.
  • Make sure the pressure valve is set to 'SEALING', and press the MANUAL button, and set the time to 18 minutes.
  • Let the Instant pot build and release the pressure - this will take a few minutes to bring the Instant Pot up to pressure, then cook, and release the pressure.
  • When the Instant Pot is done cooking, it will beep and go to the 'OFF' setting.
  • Make sure all the pressure has been released by turning the pressure valve to VENTING, and make sure the FLOAT valve is down.
  • Open the lid to the Instant Pot, and stir the Chili.
  • Serve with your favorite toppings: sour cream, cheese, onions, green onions, ketchup, Fritos, Tortilla chips, crackers, etc. Enjoy!

Notes

NOTE: Make sure to rinse the beans before adding them to the Chili - that includes the Ranch Style beans, that are in a sauce; they will still retain the flavor. When you add the Stewed tomatoes, add the juice from the can; do not drain the tomatoes, the juice adds flavor to the chili.
ALSO: Ground sirloin typically does not have a lot of fat, so when you remove it from the Instant Pot, and add the onions, you might need to add a small amount of butter or Olive oil to saute the onions in. After you've cooked the Chili, and removed the lid to the Instant Pot to stir the Chili, place a small amount of chili in a bowl, and taste the Chili. If it's not seasoned enough for you, add a little more of all the spices: Chili powder, Cumin, garlic salt, seasoned salt, and brown sugar. Stir well, and let the Chili sit for 5 minutes, and taste again. Some Chili powders are stronger than others, and you might need more of the brand you have. Keep adding a little seasoning until you get the flavors you want.
