Make Chipotle Black Beans Vegetarian for a Healthy Version

This vegetarian black beans recipe is a simple way to get extra veggies in your diet. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family.

I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

How Do I Make Chipotle Black Beans?

Stove Top Directions with Canned Beans

  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for 5 minutes until the onion begins to soften.
  2. Add the dried chopped chipotle peppers and black beans. Stir in the chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, and vegetable stock. Mix well to combine. Add the bay leaves and salt, cover, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, cover and reduce to a simmer.
  3. Cook for 25 minutes, remove the bay leaves, and squeeze in fresh lime juice.
  4. Add to tacos, burrito bowls, or just enjoy by themselves. 

Instant Pot Directions with Dried Beans

  1. In the Instant Pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat and set to Sauté mode. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes until the onion begins to soften.
  2. Add the dried chopped chipotle peppers and black beans. Stir in the chili powder, paprika, cumin, oregano, and vegetable stock. Mix well to combine. Add the bay leaves and salt, and seal the Instant Pot lid. Set to Pressure Cook (or Manual/High mode, depending on your model), and cook for 40 minutes.
  3. Once 40 minutes has passed, allow the beans to naturally release for 15 more minutes. Then carefully quickly release the remainder of the steam. Remove lid, discard the bay leaves, and squeeze in fresh lime juice.
  4. Add to tacos, burrito bowls, or just enjoy by themselves.
