1 pound Ground Beef
1 medium Yellow Onion, chopped
12 ounce box Jovial Gluten Free Brown Rice Pasta, uncooked
15.5 ounce can Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
3 tsp Chili Powder
1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
1 tsp Ground Cumin
1/2 tsp Coarse Ground Black Pepper
2 cups Beef Broth
1 cup Water
2 cups Cheddar Cheese, shredded
1/4 cup Heavy Cream


In your instant pot using the manual mode cook the ground beef until almost all of the pink is gone. Add the onion and saute until they're translucent, about 2-3 minutes.

Add the uncooked pasta, beans, chili powder, garlic, salt, cumin, pepper, beef broth and water to the instant pot in an even layer. Do not stir! This will prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pot.

Using manual pressure cook for 5 minutes. Let the steam release naturally.

Carefully remove the lid. Stir in the shredded cheese and heavy cream.

Serve with extra cheese on top and sour cream if you like.
