Instant Pot Refried Beans

These Instant Pot Refried Beans are 100% fat free, yet just as flavorful and creamy as the beans at your local Mexican restaurant.  This cheap and simple side dish will teach you how to cook perfect refried beans using dry beans (no soaking!) in 1 hour.

INGREDIENTS

Turn on the sauté function and let the inner pot become warm. Once warm, add 1 tablespoon of water or broth. Add the diced onion and jalapeño and sauté for 5 minutes.

1

Add tamari, maple syrup, and spices. Cook, stirring frequently, for an additional 60-90 seconds to toast the spices.

2

Add the dry beans and 4 cups of water or broth. Stir really well, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pot.  This will ensure the pressure cooking cycle does not trigger a burn warning.

3

Secure the Instant Pot lid, ensure the pressure release valve is set to "SEAL" and pressure cook under manual high pressure for 40 minutes.

4

Using an immersion blender, potato masher, food processor, or regular blender, blend or mash the beans to your desired consistency.

5

Serve as a delicious side dish with your favorite Mexican meal!
