- Onion, Jalapeno, Cilantro
- Dry Pinto Beans – I like these organic pinto beans which have a fantastic texture and flavor when cooked. Beans are a hearty addition to any meal – add them to your breakfast burritos, enjoy in a soup for lunch, or turn them into refried beans to enjoy with dinner.
- Adobo Seasoning: a really fantastic blend of salt, pepper, garlic, and spice! I like to get one that doesn’t have a lot of salt it in, so I can control the amount of salt going into the dish.
- Chili Powder: for a really nice flavor in this dip – the chili powder isn’t spicy but will give you a rich and bright flavor.
- Paprika – for a hint of spice and great flavor!
- Bay Leaves: I always add bay leaves to every bean soup I make.
- Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! I like to add a few shakes to this recipe to give this dish a nice complex depth of flavor.

How Do I Make These Vegan Pressure Cooker Refried Beans?
Canned Beans Versus Homemade
While I love the convenience of canned beans, I also love cooking dry beans from scratch in my Instant Pot. I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, which is larger than standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Instant Pot works wonders for cooking dried beans fast, no soaking required! While canned beans are super convenient, they are often loaded with sodium. If you buy canned beans, I always recommend using a no salt added variety so you can control the amount of salt in your dish. Next time you reach for the canned beans, think about a pressure cooker instead! Homemade beans are incredibly cost efficient, and you can add seasonings and spices to the beans while they cook for extra flavor.
