We are super excited to bring you a very simple recipe for you to break your newly purchased (or maybe newly dusted off) Instant Pot.


– Pinto beans – Water – Salt Optional additions: – Jalapeno – Garlic – Yellow onion – Cumin – Salt

In a 6-quart pressure cooker, add the beans, water, salt, and any optional additions that you’re using. Set it to high pressure and cook for 25 minutes.

After 25 minutes, release the pressure, remove the lid, and use the “saute” function to cook for another 25 to 35 minutes, or until the beans reach your desired softness. Stir occasionally.

We recommend writing the date they were cooked and the portion on the outside to make it easier to use them later.
