    For foods that expand, such as white beans, please do not fill the inner pot more than 1/2 full.

    I made this last night and just added chicken stock…no water. It was yummy!

    How much water should be added in step 3?

    I made this tonight and we loved it! Couldn’t find oregano so I subbed rosemary and I used jalapeno instead of anaheim. Will make again.
