Chili is best simmered low and slow, but sometimes you don't have the time. A pressure cooker helps tenderize pork shoulder, a cut of meat that's usually tough, in minutes rather than hours. A mixture of green chiles, cilantro, garlic and lime brighten up this easy and wonderfully speedy.





  1. For the chili: In a small food processor, combine the scallions, garlic, poblano, jalapeno and cilantro. Process until a chunky paste forms, 2 to 3 minutes. Scrape into a 6-quart Instant Pot®, add the pork, canned chiles with their liquid, the cumin, salt and pepper. Stir together.
  2. Follow the manufacturer's guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to pressure cook on high for 35 minutes. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release and wait until the quick-release cycle is complete.
  3. Being careful of any remaining steam, unlock and remove the lid. Set the pot to saute on high and stir in the beans and lime juice. Taste for seasoning and add more salt or pepper, if needed. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, 10 to 15 minutes. For a thicker chili, simmer until it reaches your desired consistency.
  4. Meanwhile, prepare the toppings. When ready to serve, ladle the chili into shallow bowls and garnish with avocado, Cotija, cilantro and lime wedges.
