No doubt about it: one of the best make-ahead Whole30 meals is a bowl of hearty chili!
If you’re putzing around the house and have 20 minutes to spare, just toss the ingredients for chili into your Instant Pot, and it’ll be ready to eat after a busy day out. Better yet, you can pop the finished chili in the fridge or freezer to revive on a later date (like, say, Thursday) when you’re tempted to buy take out.
Don’t have an Instant Pot? No need to fret! Both of the chili recipes below include instructions for the slow cooker and/or stovetop!
