Instant Pot: Perfect Pinto Beans #instantpot #reclaimingvitality

Perfect Instant Pot Pinto Beans (Soaked or Unsoaked)



Perfect Instant Pot pinto beans are a snap to make with the Instant Pot! These beans are excellent in tacos, on nachos, in a taco bowl, or anywhere else you would use beans with a Mexican flavor. I love beans, but they used to require quite a bit of time. I would make a big batch and freeze them so that I could have them on hand when wanted, but now I make smaller batches in my Instant Pot because they are so quick and easy to make. A bonus is I have more space in my freezer! Continue reading “Perfect Instant Pot Pinto Beans (Soaked or Unsoaked)”

The Instant Pot is my new favorite kitchen tool. I wrote about why here if you are interested. One of my favorite applications of said Instant Pot is making hard boiled eggs! If you have ever hard boiled a farm-fresh egg, you know that you lose a ton of egg while trying to peel the shell. They are simply too fresh. Making your hardboiled eggs in the Instant Pot won’t save you any time, but it will save you frustration if you sometimes end up with green in your yolks or eggs that won’t peel well.  Continue reading “Instant Pot: Perfect Hard boiled Eggs (even farm-fresh!)”
