Mayocoba Bean Soup is a spicy bean and vegetable soup that we prepare in our pressure cooker. It takes about 15 minutes to prepare and about 2 hours to cook including hot cooldown time in the pressure cooker, in which time you can do other things.

Place the washed beans in the container of at least a 10 cup pressure cooker.

Place the washed jalapeno pepper with the stem removed in a blender container with 6 cups of water, cover, and run the blender at high speed until the pepper is completely ground, and add the contents to the pressure cooker container. Rinse out the blender container with a little water into the pressure cooker container, if desired.

Wash the celery and peel the onions. Dice or thinly slice them and add to the cooking container.

Add the tomato paste, frozen veggies, and seasonings to the container. Place the container in the pressure cooker with the lid secured. Set the timer for "beans", and let it cook and cool down naturally. Allow the pressure cooker to keep the soup warm for at least another hour to help give the beans a more creamy texture.

Serve and Enjoy.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
