  1. Set the pressure cooker to “Saute” and add olive oil.
  2. Brown the ground protein starter, diced onion, and jalapeño.

  11. Add the cilantro and lime juice, stir, and serve with your favorite toppings!


*Ideas for making this recipe easier: You can use 3 tablespoons of prepared taco seasoning instead of the dry seasonings if you are looking to save time, however, I really love this combination—especially the smoked paprika!

*This makes a good amount of soup! I suggest freezing half for an easy dinner another night!
