  6. Place lid on pot and select Pressure Cook, High Pressure and change cook time to 8 minutes.
  7. Preheat will begin 10 seconds after settings have been selected.
  8. Once cook time has completed, quick release pressure before removing lid.
  9. Allow soup to cool for 5 minutes, then stir before serving into bowls.
  10. Top with Sour Cream, Shredded Cheddar, Chopped Green Onions and Fritos to send the flavor over the top!


  • It will take approx. 15 minutes for Instant Pot to reach pressure before your selected cook time begins. This is in addition to the time to brown beef and the 8 minute cook time you have selected.
  • If using a Crock Pot Pressure Cooker, select the “Beans/Chili” setting to manually override cook time and pressure settings.
  • If you’d like to freeze the soup for later, allow it to cool off after you have cooked it.  Then transfer soup to Ziploc Freezer bags, and lay flat in the freezer to save space.
