What’s the secret to every good chili recipe? It’s all about the sauce. With that in mind, I wanted to share a truly excellent instant pot sweet chili sauce recipe that’s 100% paleo-friendly. From start to finish, you can have this sauce ready to go in 25 minutes, making it a quick and easy option to whip up when you’re looking to spice up your chili a bit. And spice it up, it will—the sauce is made with two fresh long red chili peppers, along with a few other tasty ingredients like garlic, ginger, and honey (which all have the added benefit of making sure the sauce doesn’t just taste great, but it’s packed with antioxidants as well).
