Tasty, Instant Pot Chili

A favorite of ours, based on the the chili you can get from iconic “Real Chili” in Milwaukee, WI. It is less like “soup” and the meat has a thicker consistency (like Sloppy Joe meat). The ingredients are layered in.


  • 1 package spaghetti
  • 1 box of Wick Fowler’s 2-Alarm Chili mix
  • 2 lbs ground beef
  • 1 16-oz can Kidney Beans
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 1/2 lb Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
  • 1 small onion (white or yellow)
  • 2 cups sour cream


  • Brown the ground beef. Drain
  • add the tomato sauce
  • Add the Chili mix
  • Boil the pasta (12 minutes)
  • Boil the kidney beans on low/medium heat

The Journey Begins

My main purpose for starting this blog is so that I can add our personal recipes to a page where they can get picked up by Yummly. So that I can do meal planning. I may post other things as I think of them. Maybe.

If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading. — Lau Tzu
