  • Rinse your dry black beans under water (put into a colander to make it easier).
  • Pour into your pressure cooker with all other ingredients (can opt to just garnish with cilantro if desired too).
  • Close pressure cooker lid and close steam valve. Set to high pressure for 25 minutes. Then allow to naturally release steam for 15 minutes.
  • Release remaining steam and lift lid. Turn pot off.
  • Taste and add more seasonings if you desire.
