In the Instant Pot, add all the ingredients above.  Seal the IP, press the Beans button and adjust the time. Make sure the mode is set to normal and the pressure is high.


– The IP will take 10 – 15 minutes to come to pressure before the timer begins. – After the IP beeps, either let it release naturally for 15 minutes or do a quick release in less than 5 minutes.  


– Mash the beans in the IP container or transfer them to a bowl.  I use an old-fashioned potato masher.  Don't mash them so much that you don't have any whole beans.


– Serve – Eat – Enjoy
