These are by far The “BEST” Refried beans made in the Instant Pot. I’m so in love with these delicious beans! And once you see how easy they are to make, you’ll ditch the canned stuff! It’s simple, healthy, delicious and easy to customize to your liking. They make for a fantastic easy side dish. Creamy and luscious, they’re perfect for tacos, burritos, enchiladas, taquitos and so much more. I’m sure it will soon become a family favorite. Enjoy
1 lbs. dry pinto beans, rinsed and picked over
1 large white onion, diced
6 garlic cloves, minced
6 cups of vegetable broth, oil free
2 bay leaves
2 Teaspoon roasted cumin
2 Teaspoon dried oregano
2 Tablespoons Benson’s Table Tasty
1/4-1/2 Teaspoon dried jalapeño chili peppers, or more to taste
1-In the instant pot, using the sauté function, sauté the onions and garlic until the onions are caramelized. Use a little water in the pan if onions start to stick.
2-Once the onions have caramelized, turn the sauté function off. Put the remaining ingredients in the instant pot. Pressure cook on manual for 45 minutes. Let the pressure come down naturally.
3-Strain the beans’ liquid with a strainer. Keep the beans liquid in a separate bowl to use a little at a time to mix in with the beans. Place beans back in the Instant Pot.
4-Using an immersion blender, start blending and adding liquid a little at a time, until you get the creamy consistency that you like.
