Learn how to make Refried Black Beans from scratch using basic ingredients and a pressure cooker. They’re budget-friendly, freezer-friendly, and the perfect healthy side dish for serving alongside your favorite Mexican food!
- yellow onion - jalapeño - tamari - maple syrup - chili powder, garlic powder, cumin, salt - liquid smoke - dried black beans - water
Using the sauté function on your Instant Pot, sauté the onion and jalapeño in avocado oil for 5 minutes or until fragrant and translucent.
Stop the sauté and add in the remaining ingredients. Stir to combine and add the lid.
After 40 minutes, allow the Instant Pot to depressurize naturally for at least 10 minutes. Manually release the remaining pressure by switching the valve to the “venting” position.
Blend the beans with your immersion blender directly in pot with remaining liquid until you have reached your preferred texture. I like to leave a few beans whole.
