Choose Your Cooking Method
The recipe instructions include several cooking methods: stovetop, pressure cooker, and slow cooker.
We love our pressure cooker. I am always hesitant to add yet another appliance to our kitchen, and was a Pressure Cooker Holdout for the longest time! Once we got one though? We honestly started using it all the time. It really does decrease cooking time, helping you get dinner finished quickly when you need to.
Years ago, I originally made the recipe in a stovetop dutch oven. If your pressure cooker / slow cooker has a sauté function, you literally follow the same instructions, up to bring to a boil. Then you simply scroll down to the cook times for either machine you opted for.

I've never cooked with a slow cooker. I should try it though.
they are awesome... for so much... oats, applesauce, soups, and apparently brownies! 😀

Oooh. Delish! I don't have a slow cooker. I'd love to have one though!
you could make this soup without one... 🙂
Sounds really yummy! I am going to have to give this one a try. I think my hubby would really love it, he loves spicy foods.

Mmmm I love my slow cooker, but haven't used it for a while now. Time to pull the ol' slow cooker out.
You know I got the slow cooker from Ryan's mom one year for christmas and hated it.....now its "pretty good" to have 😉
yep - until you use one, you might think "meh"... 🙂 then you make something wonderful and want to use it every day!

I looooooooooove my slow cooker! My favorite thing to use it for is jsut this - hearty, filling soups and stews! Love your knife! So cute! 🙂
we love ours too... especially in the winter... yep, I love my new knife, even if it sliced me up!
Woah this sounds amazing! I love the idea of pureeing one can of black beans so it thickens the soup. Yum!
yes... it makes it very thick and YUMMY!

I'm probably doing chili in my slow cooker this weekend... yesssss....

Mmm... slow cooker chili is the best! 😀
I love the jalapenos COOKED in this too... they make the whole soup WARM.
MMM, the semi vegetarian in me thanks you. What a great recipe. I love coming home when something has been cooking all day. We typically do chili.
I have seen a recipe for brownies in a slow cooker, we should investigate.
brownies in a slow cooker!!?? oh my... yep, I'm going to look...
Yum! We don't have a slow cooker but I want one! And a rice cooker, too. 🙂
Mmm... slow cooker before rice cooker, but yes both would be nice!
