Dried beans are one of the healthiest staples you can stock your pantry with – not to mention super frugal. We love beans as part of a balanced flexitarian diet, but I’m terrible at remembering to soak them in advance. Luckily you can skip all that forethought using the magic of the instant pot.
Cooking dried beans in the instant pot is quick and super hands off. It’s also much cheaper than buying canned beans, and the result is very, very delicious. Honestly, I didn’t know how much I loved pinto beans until I made them myself. I’m kinda hooked now.
These instant pot pinto beans are seasoned with fairly traditional Mexican ingredients – poblano peppers, oregano, cumin and lime juice. The texture is tender and creamy, and the flavor is vibrant. Enjoy them as a side dish, or stuff them into tortillas for vegetarian tacos.
