The Instant Pot cooks beans so much faster which makes it perfect for making bean soup. This Two Bean Soup Recipe uses Red Beans and Pinto Beans and is perfect served with cornbread or rolls.
My dad always loved it when my mom served bean soup, cornbread and sweet tea for supper. It was one of his favorite meals to eat year round. Sometimes simple meals are the best!
It took me a few months after I purchased my Instant Pot to start using it. I have this Instant Pot from Amazon and now I use it as much as my slow cooker.
Instant Pot Two Bean Soup Recipe
1/2 small bag Red Beans
1/2 small bag Pinto Beans
1 container Vegetable (or beef)Broth
1 Jalapeno pepper; de-seeded and diced
1 Serrano; de-seeded and diced
1 White Onion; diced
4 strips of bacon; diced
1/2 bundle of Cilantro; chopped
1 tablespoon Minced Garlic
1 tablespoon Cumin
1 teaspoon Cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons Paprika
1 tablespoon Salt
1 tablespoon Pepper
Wash beans in a strainer.
Place beans, onion, cilantro, peppers, and broth in your instant pot (pressure cooker). Give it a good stir.
Add in bacon and garlic. Stir well.
Add in all the spices and stir well. Cover with water to the max level.
Place the instant pot or pressure cooker on high pressure mode. Set for 1 hour. Let it release pressure on its own.
Use your instant pot or pressure cooking guide for beans if you feel the time is longer than you would like. We have cooked these many times and feel the best is a full hour without soaking the beans before hand.
