Heat the Instant Pot on the saute function. When it's hot, add the oil and then add chopped onions and minced garlic. Stir for 30-seconds and then add ground beef. Break up the ground beef and allow it to brown slightly.
Meanwhile blend together the canned tomatoes, chipotle chili, and the corn tortillas until relatively smooth.
Mix the various spices in a small bowl and once the ground beef is somewhat brown (but not fully cooked), add the powdered spices and allow the spices to bloom for 30 seconds.
Add in the blended corn tortillas and tomatoes and use the 1/2 cup water to wash out the blender and pour that into the pot. (Use 1/4 teaspoon of Xantham Gum in place of corn tortillas while it is boiling to make low carb)
Seal quickly, cook at high pressure for 10 minutes, and allow it to release pressure naturally for 10 mins and then release remaining pressure.
Mix well, top with cheese if desired and serve.

If you don't follow the Keto lifestyle, you can add corn and a can of beans after cooking to make it more hearty.
Some people like to add a little fish sauce to their chili recipes. You can add 2 teaspoons of fish sauce to the mix if you'd like, but this Low Carb Chili is so good that you most likely won't need to.
You can use a can of crushed tomatoes in place of the canned fire-roasted tomatoes if you are having a hard time finding some, but I highly recommend using the fire-roasted as it adds a lot more flavor to the dish.
Looking for a lower fat meat option for your chili? Make an Instant Pot Turkey Chili by substituting the ground beef with ground turkey. Just make sure to add a tablespoon of olive oil during the browning step.
Have leftovers? They should last for 3-5 days in the fridge when properly stored in an airtight food container. If you need to keep them for any longer, portion them out and freeze them.
