Instant Pot Black Beans ~ No Soak!

Instant Pot Black Beans

There will be a few dishes that you will make in the Instant Pot that you will consider life-changing.  I have a few dishes like my instant pot lemon cream cheese dump cake and instant pot weight watchers pineapple angel food cake, those were both pretty mind-blowing once I discovered I could make cakes in my instant pot.  Instant Pot Salsa Chicken was pretty life-changing in that it showed me how two very simple ingredients and very little time could produce a delicious dinner for my boys rather than ordering expensive takeout.  

Then I tried to make Instant Pot Refried Beans and then the light bulbs started to go off.  Making beans is so much easier to do in the instant pot and does not require soaking.  Having homemade black beans is usually only a treat I can have at an authentic Mexican restaurant but now I can have them anytime I want.  This recipe is so simple and, once again, does not require any soaking!
