  • 1 lb. ground chuck

  • 1/2 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 16 oz. pinto beans drained
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 15 oz. whole kernel corn drained
  • 14.5 oz. Mexican-style stewed tomatoes
  • 10 oz. Rotel

  • 1/2 tsp. dried chives
  • 1/2 tsp. dried parsley

  1. Using sauté setting - add ground beef and onions to pot. Season with salt and pepper and cook until beef is thoroughly browned - mixing frequently. Pour into fine mesh strainer to drain and return to pot.

  2. Add all remaining ingredients and mix well. Switch to manual setting for 5 minutes and close lid. Once cook time is complete - quick-release pressure.
