Chef's Notes

Use any color bell pepper you prefer; Feel free to wait for a natural release for the pressure cooker if you have the time.


  1. Made this today. Family liked it. There was a taste I was not familiar with not sure if it was the miso. Next time I make this I will add a little less other wise it was good. Also found two cans of mixed bean in chili sauce put one can in and the other - Read more ...
  2. Super easy! Super good!
  3. This was super simple and turned out great! They no longer carry the 3 bean mix in my area so I just substituted 2 cans of other beans. First time making chili in my IP and it won't be the last time.
