Electric Pressure Cooker Chicken and Black Bean Fideo Soup
Olive oil
1 yellow onion, diced
1 tsp. each cumin and chili powder
1/2 tsp. each granulated garlic and smoked paprika
2 Tbs. tomato paste
1 cup fideo pasta
2 cups shredded or chopped cooked chicken
14 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed (or approx 1 1/2 cups cooked black beans)
4-6 cups chicken broth (depending on how thick you prefer your soup to be)
10 oz. can diced tomatoes and green chilies
Salt and pepper, to taste
Toppings: sour cream, avocado, cilantro, salsa, black olives, shredded cheeses
Set Electric Pressure Cooker (EPC) pot to sauté setting and add a bit of oil; when oil is hot, add onions, spices, and tomato paste, stirring and cooking until tomato paste is a deep, dark, and “brown-ish” in color. Add 2 cups chicken broth and stir to combine, bringing mixture to a boil.
Lock EPC lid into place and choose High Pressure setting for 2 minutes; when timer sounds, use a quick release to let remove all pressure from EPC. Carefully remove lid and stir ingredients in pot to combine. Add pasta, chicken, beans, diced tomatoes and green chilies, and as much more broth as desired; season to taste with salt and pepper, as desired.  If needed, bring soup to simmer if pasta needs to cook a bit longer to be tender, stirring occasionally.  To serve soup, garnish with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
