Steps
  1. 1) Trim all fat from chuck roast, cut into ½” cubes
  2. 2) Turn Instant Pot to Saute, when hot add 1 TBS oil, diced onion and diced jalapeno
  3. 3) Add 2 garlic cloves, sausage, and chuck roast. Brown well
  4. 4) Add all remaining ingredients except salt, pepper, cayenne
  5. 5) Turn Off Instant Pot, and Turn back on to Beans/Chili mode (30 min default)

  7. 7) Taste and adjust seasoning with salt, pepper, cayenne
  8. 8) Serve with cheese and onions, over spaghetti or rice, baked potatoes, or eggs. Or my favorite, on top of Fritos corn chips. Always better the next day, and also freezes well.
