These Instant Pot Mexican Pinto Beans are such a filling and delicious meal!  The beans are cheap so it really is the best bang for your buck when feeding a large family!

The taste and texture of this Instant Pot Pinto Beans Recipe is so flavorful with the onion and garlic and juices from the sausage!

The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to pre-soak the beans. Just pop your dried beans into your Instant Pot for a little over an hour and you’ll have the most tender and flavorful Mexican pinto beans of your life!

If you’re using your Instant Pot, you do not need to soak the pinto beans. The Instant Pot is a pressure cooker and cooks your beans to perfection, how easy is that?!

Do you need to soak the Pinto Beans before cooking?

I put our leftover pinto beans into an airtight container. Leftover beans will have a creamy texture so they are great to add into a soup!

How do you store leftover Pinto Beans?

Yes! Feel free to use another kind of bean such as white beans or black beans. This is a simple recipe that is easy to adapt using different types of beans.

Can you use a different kind of dried bean?
