Pressure Cooker - Chili Con Carne

Recipe by marcyfrater

This recipe originates from the booklet that came with my Futura pressure cooker. I love substituted low sodium ingredients because I am watching my sodium intake. I hope you like this.

Pretty excellent! I made a few changes: (1) Used half as much ground beef; 2.25 lbs is a lot of meat. (2) Used the entire bag of kidney beans, a full 2 cups instead of 1.5 cups. (3) For tomatoes I used 2 - 14.5 oz cans of Hunts petite diced. (4) Why just 1 Tbs of tomato paste? What do you do with the rest of the can. I just added the entire can. (5) Using Mrs Dash is a fine idea which I followed. A fun recipe...thank you!!!
