This simple instant pot pinto beans recipe yields 6 cups of cooked beans with no pre-soaking required.
*If you've planned ahead and soaked your beans overnight, you can skip this extra 4 cups of water. Overnight soaked beans only need about a quart of liquid, while dry un-soaked beans need two quarts (8 cups). If your beans are presoaked, they only require 28-30 minutes of pressure cook time. **Most recipes for beans have you add 2 full teaspoons of salt per pound of beans. I found this makes them quite salty, and I prefer 1 teaspoon. Adjust to your own tastes.
