Easy InstantPot Pinto Beans (Vegan, Oil Free)

Updated: Aug 30, 2018

It wasn't too long ago that I was still buying canned beans from the store. At the time it seemed more convenient and I liked the way that the beans held up when using them. But now that we have out instant pot I realize that it's way easier and delicious to make your own pinto beans at home. These are so great because of how versatile they are. We use these in a bunch of Mexican dishes throughout the week, and I also love adding them to my Southwest Spinach Salad!

Here's what you will need!

  • 1 cup of dry pinto beans

  • 4 cups of water

  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp onion powder

  • 1 tsp ground black pepper

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

  • InstantPot


  1. Add all of the ingredients into the instantpot

  2. Set instantpot for 30 minutes on the pressure cook setting

  3. Quick release
