The perfect Syn Free Instant Pot Chocolate Chilli - rich from cocoa powder and packed with flavour, it's quick and simple to make.
Gotta love a good ole chilli recipe, right? and this Low Syn Instant Pot Chocolate Chilli will not fail to disappoint.
Okay okay - it doesn't actually contain any chocolate but instead some cocoa powder, but it adds the same richness to the sauce as grating in a bit of good quality chocolate without using too many syns.
In fact, because the cocoa powder is so low in syns for the amount used when divided up into portions, the syns are negligible to the point that a serving becomes syn free.
If you haven't yet tried a chilli recipe with added chocolate. Give this a try!!.
Wait!! What's an Instant Pot?, I hear you say.
Instant Pot is a brand of multi-function pressure cooker. It's one of my favourite cooking appliances. I love this thing so much, that I almost use it EVERY.SINGLE.DAY.
It is basically a 7in1 cooker, and it slow cooks, pressure cooks, saute’s, has settings for soup, chilli, rice, porridge and even makes yoghurt (I haven’t tried that yet).

You might look at the ingredients list and think gosh that's a lot of ingredients, but good chilli really does need the right blend of spices and most of those spices are items that we have in our store cupboard.
There are no kidney beans or any kind of beans in my Instant Pot Chocolate Chilli - mainly because the kids prefer it without, but if you like your chilli with beans, feel free to add some in.
Instant Pot Chocolate Chilli is delicious served with a variety of different things from rice, sweet potato fries, regular syn free fries on a baked potato or even with some salad.
For me, though my favourite is a chilli bowl, it's perfect and feels like a real treat. Instant Pot Chocolate Chilli, a little bit of avocado (syns, fresh chopped tomatoes, chopped cilantro and spring onion, some grated cheddar as part of my healthy extra A choice, a little bit of soured cream (syns).
Lastly, I use my PERFECT SYN FREE CHIPS recipes and make some yummy crispy potato slices, that are perfect for dipping into the chilli, a little mouthful of everything in the bowl all at once and it's a flavour explosion in your mouth. Just follow the recipe for the syn free chips, but instead of slicing into chips, cut into rounds.
How can I add a ⅓ speed foods to this Instant Pot Chocolate Chilli?
One of my favourite things to serve with some chilli when I want to add some speed foods is these Roasted Paprika Butternut Squash - really delicious and the flavours go so well together. A nice big mixed salad is also great with chilli. You could even serve with some Roasted Cauliflower Rice.
