Special Kitchen Tools: Pressure Cooker & Whisk 


  1. Using the sauté feature on your instant pot, add the oil and allow to heat. Add the onions, bell pepper, jalapeno, and garlic.  Cook and stir to soften the veggies.  Add ground ostrich and cook.  Due to the low-fat content of ostrich, no draining should be necessary.  
  2. Add the chili powder, salt, pepper, tomatoes, broth, and lime juice, stirring to mix well.
  3. Close and lock the lid.  Make sure the vent is open to allow condensation to escape.
  4. Using the slow cook feature, set the timer to 4 hours.
  5. When the cooking time has finished, open the lid and add the beans.
