Filling and so flavorful! Easy to make. Great vegetarian dish!
Just remember to half the recipe if you are using the 3 quart luxe mini. I made that mistake.
Very filling, i found it needs more spices.
Maybe if you did the low presure over a longer time, the flovors would come out more.
won’t make it again. This dish lacks complexity of flavor and body. Nothing balances the strong tomato base. I even increased the amount of spices, and it didn’t help. I wanted to like it, but…
This is a go-to recipe for me. I use salt-free chicken broth instead of water though.
I’ve made this twice now and really is tasty!
This recipe makes no sense! After step 1 do you put the blended ingredients in the IP? Do you add at the end. My guess would be in the pot after it is hot on saute. Clearer directions please!
My family liked it, but complained that it wasn’t spicy enough. I also tried it as a dip for tortillas chips, like the video suggested.
This looks amazing! Im going to make a batch up and freeze portions.
Lentils were mush. Flavors good, but I’ll cook for less time. Maybe 5 min.
I never saw an answer to Allisonunderoressure’s question. It is the same one I had when reading the recipe. Where and when is the date mixture incorporated with the rest?
We missed their comment sorry.
We will have to reach out to the Author, Chef Aj, for the exact correction. Personal guess would be to add it to the inner pot with the rest of the ingredients.
We will update once we have an answer.
1 lb red bell pepper– is that correct? How many peppers would that be?
I was so excited to try this recipe! As I prepared everything to go into the instant pot it smelled so wonderful. As the pot was preheating and before reaching the actual cooking it errored with ‘burn’. I referred to my manual to figure out what to do. It said to cancel the program and check the contents and when I did I found the lentils sticking to the bottom. I added some additional water, stirred the contents and started the pot again only for it to error again. I have double checked the recipe several times thinking I missed something but I did everything as instructed. This recipe made a lot. The chili was ruined and we were sooooo disappointed after it smelled so delicious going in. Will be throwing it all out. I’m thinking it would be better on the stove. Maybe cooking the lentils separately first and then add everything else just until heated through, but not to overcook it.
Love it, so easy i will definately make this again
