Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb pinto beans rinsed and picked over
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 6-8 ounces chorizo sausage diced
  • 2 large chilies seeded and diced
  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • Green onions optional

Instructions
 

  • In the pressure cooker, place the pinto beans and 3 cups of water. Lock the lid in place, bring to HIGH pressure, and cook for 2 minutes. Release the pressure. Drain and rinse the beans under cold running water.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive in the cooker. Add the onion, chorizo, garlic, and chilies. Cook about 2 minutes.
  • Add the beans to the cooker with 3 cups chicken stock, chili powder, cumin, and the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil.

  • Serve with additional cheddar cheese and green onions if desired.
