This is soooo good. It's my modification of a recipe I found online somewhere. I just got my first pressure cooker and this was the recipe I used to break it in. This soup is so easy and quick in the pressure cooker...cooked in 25 min. and tasted like it had been slow cooking all day! Of course, it can also be cooked stovetop or in the slow cooker! Filling, satisfying comfort food with just a bit of spice!
