My Instant Pot Black Beans recipe makes a simple, tasty, healthy & budget-friendly dinner. They are really quick and easy to make with no soaking involved. They are great to have on hand for simple dinners and meal prep!
PREP TIME: 7 minutesminutes
COOK TIME: 25 minutesminutes
Pressure building & release time 30 minutesminutes
up to 1 teaspoonsalt, plus more to taste if required
Add all ingredients except the lime to the Instant Pot and stir.
Put the lid on the Instant Pot and seal the vent.
Cook on high pressure MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK in newer models, for 25 minutes for tender, soft beans, (or 30 minutes of you prefer really soft slightly mushy beans) and leave the pressure to release naturally before opening the lid. Please note that the beans continue to cook during the natural pressure release so if you skip this step and vent manually your beans will turn out much firmer.
Add salt to taste then squeeze the juice of the lime into the beans and give them a quick stir before serving.
