Cook Time
35 minutes


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sweet yellow onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 15 oz marinara sauce
  • 15 oz black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups macaroni
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. Set the cooker to Sauté-then-Simmer® STS; sauté the garlic and onion with oil until the onions are soft and transparent.
  2. Add the chili powder, marinara sauce, black beans, corn, and vegetable broth to the inner pot. Stir to combine everything.
  3. Stir in the macaroni until well combined. Stir the chili every few minutes to loosen the noodles until it reaches a boil.
  4. Once boiling, close the lid and let the chili simmer for 15 minutes, until the pasta is tender and the liquid is thick and saucy.
  5. Once the pasta is done, switch the cooker to KEEP WARM. Stir in the shredded cheddar until melted. Serve hot. Recipe inspiration from Budget Bytes.
