Pinto Beans in the Electric Pressure Cooker
Success! I made pinto beans in my new 14 Quart Go Wise electric pressure cooker. You can also do Pinto Beans in the Instant Pot or another brand electric pressure cooker (it might be worth having a look at the best electric pressure cooker reviews before buying one). I headed out with a few of the kids for an afternoon hike. When we got back, the beans were waiting for us. With some brown rice made in the Instant Pot and cornbread from the freezer, we were ready for our big weekend meal!
One of the beautiful parts of large family cooking up a big batch of Pinto Beans in the pressure cooker is the beans do not need to be presoaked! No more forgetting to soak your beans, yay! Just rinse them and pressure cook away. 🙂Print
Beans and rice are great staples to have on hand for feeding large families. You can cook up a big batch of beans in no time in your electric pressure cooker.
- 4 lbs of beans
- 12 cups water
- chopped onion and green pepper
- spices to taste: cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika
- Add all ingredients to the pressure cooker.
- Cook on manual high pressure for 25 minutes.
- Do Quick Release Method or Natural Release (since I was on a hike I let this batch do natural release)
- This goes great with brown rice and cornbread.
If you are looking for a hearty large family meal that’s quick to prep, pinto beans in the electric pressure cooker fits the bill!
