540 Calories Per Serving


  • 3 cans of clams and the water from clams
  • 5 slices of bacon
  • 16 oz of raw deveined shrimp
  • 6 medium-sized potatoes
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 celery sticks, chopped into small pieces
  • 3 cups of chicken stock
  • 1 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 2 Tbsp garlic
  • 1 Tbsp butter
  • 3 Tbsp cornmeal
  • ½ Jar of Pure Hatch Green Chile
  • 1 Tbsp of Posole Seasoning


1. Cook Bacon

Start by sautéing the bacon until the fat has rendered out.

2. Add Onions

Add the butter, onions, and garlic, and sauté until the onions are translucent.

3. Add to Pressure Cooker

Add all other ingredients except for the drained clams, shrimp, heavy whipping cream, and cornmeal. Place the pressure cooker on high pressure for 7 minutes. Then do a quick release.

4. Put Pressure Cooker on “Browning” Setting

Place the pressure cooker on browning, use a mashed potato smasher, and mash the potatoes in the pot into small pieces of potatoes (don’t over-smash the potatoes). Mix the cornmeal (this makes the soup thicker), then add the shrimp, heavy whipping cream, and clams.

5. Cook

Cook for an additional 5 minutes, stirring every minute or so. Serve with chopped scallions on top and with your favorite dinner bread. Enjoy!
