Pressure Cooker Chile Verde

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by Becky Wagner

I have been experimenting with different recipes in an attempt to duplicate the Chile Verde at my favorite Mexican restaurant. This is my best attempt so far and I made it up while looking for ingredients at the grocery store. It's nicely spicy but not too hot.

This is a great recipe. However, I substituted 14 oz chicken stock in place of the 14 oz tomatoes. It came out perfect and made excetellent Verde Rice and Cheese Berritos. One of my all time favorites!
