Pressure-Cooker Mexican Beef Soup

My family loves this stew, and I'm happy to make it since it's so simple! Serve the dish with cornbread to make the meal even more filling. —Angela Lively, Conroe, Texas

    Excellent! Even better that you can make in an Instant Pot (same recipe available for a slow cooker). It was on the spicy side for the kids.
