I found this quick chili recipe on a pressure cooking site, but the recipe belongs to Spyce at I am saving it here for safe keeping. I found out how good chili can be, by using cocoa, when I tried Wonka Chili by flower7. Enjoy!

Doesn't get much easier than this. Very tasty too. Always on the lookout for pressure cooker recipes that I can make in the RV and this one goes on my list. (one pot meals are a blessing in the small galley). I subbed ground turkey for the ground beef. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.
