Brown ground beef in pot of pressure cooker.  Once browned, add diced onion and minced garlic.  Stir.  Add chili powder, cumin, oregano, ancho chili powder and cayenne pepper.  Stir and cook until onions are softened and spices have released their flavors and are aromatic.

Add tomato puree, beef broth and Zesty Pinto Beans.  Stir to combine and add vegetable base, stirring until it fully dissolves.  Add a small drizzle of oil to the top of the liquid before locking the pressure cooker lid in place.

Cook over High Pressure for 8 minutes.  Release the pressure naturally.  Carefully open the lid, tilting it away from you to avoid any escaping steam.

Mix the masa slurry into the simmering chili and stir until thickened.  Taste and adjust any seasoning.  Garnish as you so desire and dig in!  ENJOY!!!
