Beef Chili with Masa Harina in an Electric Pressure Cooker

There are as many versions of chili as there are chili cooks. This one includes a signature flavor of the American Southwest: masa harina. The Mexican corn flour used for making tortillas and tamales, masa harina is made by grinding corn kernels that have been simmered in a slaked lime solution and then dried. It is sold in well-stocked food stores and in Latin markets. Added to the chili near the end of cooking, masa harina thickens the liquid slightly, giving it body, and imparts a subtle corn flavor.

I've had my pressure cooker (instapot) for 5 months now and I love it! This is the first chili I've made and it had great flavor. I made a few modifications based on what I had in hand. I halved the recipe and excluded the beer since I don't do gluten. Added a Serrano (with seeds) and Anaheim pepper instead of jalapeno and used a red onion. Delicious, healthy and will make again!!
Pros: Healthy, Easy, Quick, Impressive, Will Make Again, Yield, Adaptable

Lost of flavor without a lot of fat!
October 19, 2013
I have made this chili recipe several time in a conventional deep pot on top of the stove and in the slow cooker. But I just purchased a Cuisinart electric pressure cooker. While reading the cooking instruction it states to cook according to the mfg instructions. I went to the manual and couldn't find the timing anywhere in it, so where do you find this info? I'm a "bit frustrated" with your instructions as I find them incomplete, how much time am I to set the cooker for? Please help as it's my first time with and Electric PC
Pros: Good Value, Easy, Healthy, Appearance, Will Make Again, wonderful flavor
Cons: instruction incomplete, does not give cooking time

Excellent for Electric Pressure Cooker
January 16, 2013
This was the first dinner I made in my Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cooker and I couldn't believe how quick and easy it was to make a chili in 30 minutes that tasted like it had been cooking all day! The masa harina also really helps make the dish thick and hearty!
Pros: Quick, Will Make Again
