  1. Cook the bacon in the pressure cooker uncovered over medium-high heat until it begins to render its fat, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the onion and jalapeno pepper. Cook until onion is tender, 7 to 9 minutes. Stir in the cumin and coriander and cook 1 minute. Add the tomatoes with their liquid, the beans and 4 cups of broth.
  3. Cover the pressure cooker and bring up to high pressure according to pressure cooker instruction manual. Reduce heat and cook 20 minutes. Release pressure naturally.
  4. Carefully open the pressure cooker. If you would like a smoother, thicker consistency to the soup you can spoon 2 – 3 cups of soup into a blender and puree until smooth – or use an immersion blender to carefully blend the soup for about 10 – 15 seconds.
