Instant Pot Cooking Times for Beans
If you’re new to the Instant Pot world welcome!!
I got one around Christmas time and was hesitant at first to experiment but once I did I came up with tons of easy Instant Pot recipes and literally use it to make either dinner or dessert every night! It makes it SO much easier on me since I work full time and don’t have forever to be in the kitchen to cook a good meal.
Most of my dishes require 5 ingredients or less, and take about 15 minutes start to finish..I am all about easy recipes! Using canned beans works well too and of course cooks even quicker, a few of our favorites are below.
It is nice to have a free printable pressure cooker times sheet for beans to keep handy in your cookbook or drawer so you don’t have to go searching for it when you need it.
