  1. Thank you for posting this recipe! I made it this evening and it was delicious! I made a few changes because we love our food to be heavy on the spices (not necessarily hot, but lots of flavorful spices); swapped the oil for butter, doubled the recommended spices plus added 2 teaspoons of chili powder. A wonderful, light meal for days with a crushing heat wave. I will be checking out your other Instant Pot recipes!
