Recipe Expert Tips

  • Time Saving Tip: Always chop or cut up the vegetables ahead of time if you can. I like to prep the veggie the night before I am making soup. It makes the cooking time fly by because all you need to do is add the ingredients to the pot and set the Instant Pot to cook.
  • Dried Beans: Buy quality dried beans and use them before the expiration date if possible. Older dried beans can take longer to cook.
  • Cooking the beans: If some of the beans are still hard lock the lid back in place and pressure cook on manual for an additional 15 minutes.
  • Turkey: Cooked turkey or chicken can be used in this recipe.
