I use my Instant Pot to cook beans when I’m in a hurry. Go from dried beans to cooked in less than an hour, with none of the noise and danger of an old-fashioned pressure cooker. Here’s my core recipe for dried pinto beans cooked in an Instant Pot. I add aromatic vegetables and spices for flavor and fragrance. These ready-to-serve pinto beans cost just 44 cents a serving using organic ingredients. Canned beans just can’t compete. This recipe should work for other electric pressure cookers, but please check the directions.
