Thankfully, I didn’t have to worry because cauliflower is an all-star paleo ingredient that can easily replace my high-carb favorites. You’ll see what I mean with this instant pot cauliflower chili recipe.

Add in a bit of cumin and chili powder to give it some kick, and you’ll falling in love with this chili recipe in no time.
