  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons  chili powder
  • 2 teaspoon  cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 cup beef or chicken broth
  • 1 about 15 ounce can of kidney beans
  • 1 about 15 ounce can chili beans
  • 1 can 15 oz tomato sauce
  • 1 – 28 oz can diced tomatoes undrained (or 2 – 14.5 ounce cans)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Set the pressure cooker to sauté. Brown ground beef in the pressure cooker pot, drain. I lightly season the ground beef while cooking with a little salt and pepper. Add the onions and garlic to the ground beef and cook until onions are translucent and softened. Place the rest of the ingredients into the pressure cooker. Cook at high pressure for 10 minutes in an electric pressure cooker.


Be sure to check all the individual ingredient to make sure they are allergy free if you are avoiding dairy and gluten. Many store bought broths have dairy.
