Easy to make the beans both spicy or not. It’s all about the seasonings that are added. Here I added cumin, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper. However, a little jalapeno, chili powder, or cayenne powder could be added for heat.

What Beans?

For refried beans the best beans to use are pinto beans. Soaking the beans before hand cuts down on cook time. However, the beans do not have to be soaked. If you soak the beans just cut 15 minutes off the cook time.

Instant Pot Refried Beans

Yield: 6 Servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour 15 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes

Pinto beans cooked in the instant pot to make refried beans.

Ingredients

  • 1lb small bag pinto beans (about 2 cups)
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (more if you love garlic)
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepperĀ 

Instructions

  1. Wash beans in a strainer. Add them to the instant pot. Pour in four cups beef broth. 
  2. Add in cumin, paprika, garlic, salt, and pepper. Give it a good stir. Place the lid on the instant pot. 
  3. Set the valve to the sealed position. Press the pressure cook or manual button and set time to 1 hour and 15 minutes. 
  4. Once the instant pot stops counting and beeps release the pressure by opening the valve. Once the pressure has released and the pin has dropped open the lid. 
  5. Use an immersion blender to blend the beans. This will make them thick and creamy. Once blending if you feel like more liquid is need you can add a little water and blend. However, we do not add liquid and like the thickness and flavor of the beans from the broth alone.
