Cook until chili has thickened, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes.
Allow the Instant Pot Chili to rest for 5 more minutes before serving, it will thicken some more.
Ladle chili into serving bowls and serve with your choice of toppings: sour cream, shredded cheddar cheese, chopped red onions, shallots or green onions, sliced jalapenos, hot sauce, diced avocado, or Fritos chips (my favorite!)
Prep time does not include steps that are already accounted for in the ingredient list, e.g. chopped onions, minced garlic, cut vegetables, etc.
If you choose not to thicken the chili with masa harina, your chili will be soupy. Please keep that in mind before you omit the ingredient.
* The chili powder called for in this dish is Mexican chili powder which is a mixture of spices including cayenne and garlic. Don't use ground chili pepper!
** After 15 minutes, if you wish to, you can release the remaining pressure by moving the pressure release handle to venting position.
