Add the beans to the Instant Pot and the water. Make sure the beans are covered by at least 1 inch of water.
Cover and lock the lid, then turn the value to sealing. Select the beans/chili button (or 30-40 minutes at high pressure). **Please note: Instant Pots vary in cooking, so may take a little longer with certain ones.**
When the beans are finished cooking, wait for the Instant Pot to cool down for 10-15 minutes or release pressure manually by taking a hand towel and carefully opening up the steam value on the lid. It is safe to open the lid once all steam has been released.
Use the beans in any recipes that call for canned beans.
Recipe equals 4 (15 ounces) cans of cooked beans!!
Feel free to add any type of vegetables, seasonings, or herbs to flavor the beans while cooking.
Store leftover cooked beans in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
