Step 3: Season the Chili Sprinkle in the dry roasted garlic and herb, chili powder, onion powder, garlic powder, celery salt, pepper, and salt. Stir the ingredients well to distribute the spices evenly.

Step 4: Pressure Cook the Chili Secure the Instant Pot lid and set it to "Manual" mode on high pressure for 25 minutes. Ensure the pressure release valve is closed. Let the Instant Pot do its magic and bring all the flavors together in a fraction of the time it takes to cook traditional chili.

Step 5: Quick Release and Add Veggies After the pressure cooking is complete, carefully perform a quick release to release the pressure. Once the pressure is fully released, open the Instant Pot and add the diced onion and chopped Roasted Red Peppers. Stir them into the chili to incorporate the delightful flavors.

Step 7: Serve and Enjoy Ladle the Instant Pot Pork Chili into bowls, and if desired, garnish with your favorite toppings like shredded cheese, sour cream, fresh cilantro, or a squeeze of lime.
