Fool-proof no soak Instant Pot pinto beans. They are tender and flavorful and best of all, effortless! The perfect side for a fiesta!
- 2 strips uncooked bacon
- 1 small onion diced
- 4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1 1/4 tsp kosher sea salt
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp coriander
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
- 1 lb pinto beans rinsed and picked through
Turn Instant Pot on SAUTE mode. Once hot, add the bacon and cook for 2 minutes, flip and continue cooking. Add the onion and stir, cooking for about 2 minutes. Pour in the broth and water. Add the garlic powder, salt, chili powder, cumin, coriander, paprika, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and pinto beans.
Place lid on, and turn Instant Pot on MANUAL mode with high pressure selected for 47 minutes.**
Once cooked, allow for the pressure to release naturally, this usually takes about 15-20 minutes
Open the Instant Pot and remove the bacon and stir. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with cilantro if desired. Cooked beans will last for 1 week in the fridge.
* I used uncured applewood smoked bacon
** If using older beans, you may need to add up to 10 minutes additional time.
- 2 tbsp. diced green chiles make a great addition to these beans
