  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 ½ pounds beef chuck, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons ancho chile powder
  • 2 teaspoons Spanish paprika
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle chile powder
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
  • 1 ¼ cups water
  • ⅛ cup ground corn chips (Optional)
  • ⅛ cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • ⅛ cup chopped green onions


  • Step 1: Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season beef generously with salt and black pepper; place meat in the skillet and cook until brown on all sides, 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer to plate and set aside.
  • Step 2: Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium-low heat in the pot of a pressure cooker. Stir onion and garlic into pot; cook until almost translucent, 4 to 6 minutes. Stir in ancho chile powder, paprika, cumin, black pepper, chipotle chile powder, cayenne pepper, and oregano; cook until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add diced tomatoes, beef, and water; stir to combine.
  • Step 3: Lock the lid of your pressure cooker. Increase heat to high and bring to full pressure. Reduce heat to low to maintain pressure; cook for 15 minutes. Remove from heat and let rest 10 minutes. Ensure that pressure is fully released and remove the lid.
  • Step 4: Return uncovered pressure cooker to burner over high heat. Stir in corn chips and bring to a boil; cook for 5 minutes. Garnish with cilantro and green onion.
  • Note: If you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can still make this chili. Just simmer it on the stovetop until beef is tender, about 1 1/2 hours.
