  3. Close the lid and set Manual/Pressure Cook for 8 minutes at high pressure. Make sure the vent is set to the sealing position.
  4. When the cook time is up, manually release pressure.
  5. After the pin drops, proceed to open the lid. If you prefer a thicker soup take an immersion blender or potato masher to mash up some of the beans.

Tips and Tricks:

  • If you’re sensitive to spice, consider reducing the amount of garlic chili sauce or adjusting other spices to suit your taste preferences.
  • If you prefer a chunkier soup, you can mash only a portion of the beans or skip this step altogether. If you like a smoother consistency, use an immersion blender for a quick blend.
