Instant Pot® Pinto Beans (No Soaking) Recipe
This easy recipe for pinto beans requires no soaking! Just pop the beans in your Instant Pot® and let them absorb the bacon and chile pepper flavorings while they cook.
I used a ham hock instead of bacon but otherwise followed the recipe as written. The flavor was excellent but there was way too much liquid, (turned out to be more like a bean soup). Anyway, I soak my beans usually and then cover them with 1/2 -1" of water to cook them. Next time I make these I'll go with my time proven method for getting the right bean/water ratio.
Oh my! First time making beans in my instant pot and I will make them using this recipe from now on! Flavor is incredible! Thanks Jim for this recipe!
I was pleasantly surprised...these were terrific with very little fuss. I did not mash at the end, liked them the way they came out of the pot
I am pretty new to the Instant Pot but wanted to try something. This dish was a winner! I had no pinto beans so I substituted Romano Beans and they worked fine. I had no green chili peppers but I had red, dried ones that I had grown this past summer and dropped two into the mix. I started by dicing the bacon and the onions and then sauteing them together which worked well. When done the dish is kind of like a bean soup but my Lord is it good!!! I will definitely cook it again!
Made this for the first time. Easy to prepare and make. They were a bit firm so I cooked for an additional 10 min. This turned out fantastic and will replace my old way of making a pot of beans.
