Instant Pot black beans are an easy, basic recipe, and they are delicious in tacos, burritos, or as a side item all by themselves.
I can’t remember the last time I used canned beans. I always keep a good variety of dry beans in my pantry. Dry beans are super cheap, and they are a great source of both fiber and plant-based protein. 💥💪🏻 You can store them for a really long time too.
Pressure cooking them in my Instant Pot is so easy, and I love seasoning them up exactly to suit my preference.
These Instant Pot black beans are seasoned up with a Mexican flare. I use some vegetable base, plus garlic, cumin, coriander and paprika. They are so flavorful and delicious!😋
These are the perfect recipe for using in burritos, tacos and burrito bowls.
And as I mentioned in several of my other dry bean recipes, I used to soak beans religiously. I stopped doing it after reading this LA Times article, and I noticed exactly zero difference in taste and digestion. Once I got my Instant Pot, I stopped soaking them and never looked back!💁🏼
If you still insist on soaking yours, this will decrease the liquid by about a cup, plus shorten cooking time. I am not sure how much time you will need to reduce, since I never do it that way anymore.😬🙃
Lastly, I don’t think the Instant Pot recommendations give enough time for bean-cooking in their suggested cook times. Either that, or I like mine extra well-done.😉 I say cook your un-soaked black beans for about 50 minutes with a full natural release.
I hope y’all enjoy these Instant Pot black beans as much as we have!🤗
