Black Beans


I’m sharing another incredibly simple Instant Pot recipe with you today. This is absolutely my most favorite thing to make in it and I do a batch of these black beans every week. We eat them in burrito bowls and on salads for lunch and I always find ways of using them, like in enchiladas. How I like eating them most is in a bowl with a little bit of rice, fried egg on top and avocado and Sriracha. So simple, but so good! Again, if you are from Utah, these are very similar to Cafe Rio black beans, but you can make them home in an hour, and that’s from dry beans! This is a staple in our home and I hope you try it!
