This soup gets its flavor from a combination of the vegetables and beans as well as the taco seasoning packet that is added to the soup. This soup is great as it is, or it can be topped with tortilla chips and shredded cheese. This recipe was prepared in a 6 quart electric pressure cooker. Please refer to your pressure cooker's manual when attempting any recipes. This soup can also be prepared on the stove top but will need to be covered and simmered for 45 minutes once all of the ingredients have been added to the pot in order to achieve similar results.
