I had previously published a Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili recipe here, and while I still love that one, this one has a completely different flavor profile. This one has southwestern flavors with tomatoes with green chiles, black beans, and corn. But there are also two secret ingredients that you usually don’t see in chili! Dry ranch mix and bacon! I never though to put bacon in chili, but it is genius. It adds a salty bite and takes this chili over the top.
I use my Instant Pot for chili (best beef Instant Pot chili recipe!) way more often than my crockpot these days, but I still love to get it out for slow cooked recipes every once in a while. Nothing beats the taste of chili that has been cooked for hours! I love the Instant Pot Slow Cooker. It is such a great shape and has so many features.
