  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil
  • 1 lb 85% lean ground beef
  • 1 lb Italian sausage (hot or mild; bulk or removed from casing)
  • 6 large cloves garlic crushed
  • 6 large stalks celery chopped
  • 1 medium yellow onion chopped
  • 5 cups beef bone broth
  • 6 oz tomato paste
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • Fresh cilantro for serving (optional)


  • Turn pressure cooker on, press “Sauté”, and wait 2 minutes for the pot to heat up. Add the oil, beef, and sausage, and cook until browned, about 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally to break up the meat. Add the garlic and cook 1 minute more, stirring constantly. Press “Cancel” to stop sautéing.
  • Stir in the celery, onion, broth, tomato paste, chili powder, oregano, cumin, turmeric, and black pepper. Turn the pot on Manual, High Pressure for 5 minutes and then do a quick release.
  • Serve garnished with fresh cilantro if desired.


  • If you buy a store bought chili seasoning packet, read the ingredients list! Some of them may have added carbs in the form of flour, corn starch or dextrose. 
  • If you want to bump up the heat level, feel free to add cayenne pepper or your favorite hot sauce to taste.
