  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, low or no salt added
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder I used Penzey's Regular Chili Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1 (15.5 ounce) can black beans, rinsed (preferably low or no salt added)

Topping Suggestions

Instructions

  1. Set electric pressure cooker to the high saute setting. Heat olive oil until it shimmers but doesn't smoke. Add the ground beef. Cook, breaking up meat as it cooks until no pink spots remain. Drain excess fat.
  2. Add the onion and cook until soft, about two minutes. Add the garlic and cook an additional minute. Turn off the saute setting. Add 1/4 cup of the chicken broth. Deglaze the bottom of the pot, scraping off any cooked on bits of beef or onions/garlic with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add chili powder and salt. Stir to combine. Add black beans, rice, salsa, and corn. Stir. Pour remaining chicken broth over the mixture. Stir to combine.
  4. Lock the lid in place. Set a 10-minute cook time on high pressure.
  5. Once the cook time completes, quickly release the pressure.
  6. Open the lid away from your face. Stir with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
  7. Serve with your preferred toppings.
