It caught my attention when I realised that thousands of people had pinned this recipe on Pinterest! Using the pressure cooker you’ll be able to make this in a fraction of the time that you would if you used the stovetop or oven.

  1. I love my pressure cooker! I would have never thought to add fish sauce to a chili recipe, it sounds intriguing!


    • It’s just such an easy dish to put together! I’m sure there are more authentic Mexican chili recipes out there but this one is definitely tasty. I doubt the Mexicans put fish sauce, I think the salsa is the most important flavoring to this dish 😃
