1. clean the Thistles. To do this, and with the help of a sponge, remove thorns from stems and rinse well to ensure that I removed all the Earth.

2. in the cooker express put the Octopus. In level 2 Cook the Octopus for 12 minutes. Which I used was a fresh octopus that I not froze or nothing and came out perfect because you like the pressure cooker huh?.

3. when Octopus are ready, allow the pot to cool and chop it. Reserve water that Octopus is released and save the Octopus in a bowl.

4. in the same pot put oil, garlic, onion and very chopped pepper and tomato peeled and grated. Over medium heat, let all cook until vegetables are completely done. Add half a teaspoon of paprika and a little brown being careful not burning. Grind using a blender.

5. then add the beans and cover with water to cook the Octopus. Add the potatoes cut into slices and cook in level 2 for about 12 minutes. Passed this time, release the steam and open the cooker.

6. then add the wonderful clean and cut into pieces and Octopus. Octopus with red beans and Thistles salt to taste, and cook for 10 minutes until the beans are tender and the tender Thistles.

7 serve very hot
