Recipe Notes

This will work great with twice the meat if you would like a heartier soup

    Turned out great! The chayote was a bit firmer than id like. I nearly doubled the recipe but followed the same time instructions and it turned out

    We really enjoyed this recipe, however since we’ve made it before (not in the Instant Pot) we made a few changes. We are not a fan of cumin or squash- so we added a few more potatoes, cabbage and carrots. Once the soup was finished we added salt, pepper and lime juice to taste. We loves it so much we are making another pot tomorrow.

    Delicious soup and hubby approved. I added more cabbage and carrots. I cut off the corn from the cob instead. I used zucchini. Next time I will try chayote.

    For my first time trying this recipe, turned out amazingly great. I added more chayote and more cabagge and instead of the stew meat, I added ribs and the meat was falling of the bones…

    Very good! I used 4 cups chicken stock and 1 cup water to give great flavor! Also added extra meat and cabbage. Big hit.

    I tried this recipe with 3 pounds of beef chuck neck (with the bones). Sauteed them using a cast iron skillet and then deglazed the pan with onions. Also sauteed 3 tomatoes in the IP with garlic and a bit of oil. I then follwed the recipe with what I had in the fridge. This was a very hearty meal.
