Pressure Cooker Chili

A dear friend of mine brought me some amazing chili after John David was born ... (He's now 3 weeks old). I had her email me the recipe so I could make it and stock my freezer with this healthy chili recipe.

Pressure Cooker Chili
5 chopped roma tomatos
1 large onion chopped
1 red pepper chopped
1 green pepper chopped
1 jalepeno pepper, seeds and ribs removed and chopped
1 large or two small sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
3 carrots peeled and chopped
1 - 8 oz can of tomato sauce (Or I guess you could do 4 oz of tom paste mixed with some water)
1 to 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef (frozen or not)
3 T. cornstarch and 1/2 c water 

Chop all veggies and put in your pressure cooker
Put frozen gr beef on top of veggies and pour spices on top of beef
Use a spice mix or just mix your fave chili spices like chili powder, cumin, paprika etc.
add 2 tsp of salt if your mix doesn't have it
Pour tomato sauce on top of frozen beef/spices
Add 6 - 8 oz of water (just rinse out tom sauce can)

Put top on pressure cooker and turn burner to high to bring to high pressure
As soon as high pressure achieved, turn burner to low and let cook on high pressure for 30 minutes
Then remove from heat and let steam come out naturally 10 - 12 minutes

Open up top and break up ground beef with a spoon and mix well
Add in cornstarch/water mixture to help thicken up a bit if desired

Thank you Stephanie Cowart for this Kitchen Changing recipe :)
