We started using dry beans in our pressure cooker first when we made the most amazing no soak Instant Pot baked beans.

Then went on to make pressure cooker bean soup. Now we just can’t stop cooking from scratch because it’s so easy!

You can really add as many seasonings as you’d like, or just keep it simple as we did in the instructions below.

You can use just the ham hock too if that is all you have. It will lend to a lot of flavor but it is nice to have some diced ham inside too.

I find you can make it two ways, as a kind of black eyed peas soup and a thicker version where it is more like a baked beans consistency with ham in it. Either way it’s super flavorful and homemade in every way.

This Instant Pot black eyed peas recipe below is thicker but you can thin either one out with just some broth or water.

We are a sucker for soups year round, and especially when it is chilly outside. Of course you can make black eyed peas and ham on the stovetop.

Ever since I bought my Instant Pot I just don’t see the need for that when you can get beans and such tender in 30-60 minutes flat without soaking at all overnight.

Follow our Crockpot black eyed peas recipe here, or make slow cooker Hoppin John using canned or frozen that are already softened.
