1 - cup chopped onion
1/2 - cup chopped carrot
1/2 - cup chopped celery
1 - teaspoon salt
1 - teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
1 - teaspoon ground cumin
1 - teaspoon chili powder
1/2 - teaspoon black pepper

FROM THE TEST KITCHEN


*
Chile peppers contain oils that can irritate your skin and eyes. Wear plastic or rubber gloves when working with them.

In a 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker combine first 14 ingredients (through black pepper). Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 20 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up to pressure over medium-high heat according to manufacturer's directions; reduce heat enough to maintain steady (but not excessive) pressure. Cook 20 minutes.
