No Soak Instant Pot Pinto Beans Recipe

Who else has been threatened by cooking dried beans?

Perhaps it’s the long douse or the fastidious cooking process. Whatever it is, I NEVER appear to get them right when cooking them on the burner. At that point I had a go at making them in the Instant Pot. Victory! They were delicate, tasty and totally flavorful.

These no douse Instant Pot pinto beans are so flexible. You can utilize them in an assortment of Mexican dishes or as an afterthought. They keep going for as long as seven days in the ice chest which implies you can repurpose them again and again in the event that you don’t eat them across the board sitting.
