Each time, we could use different ingredients based on what yummy things we can find in the refrigerator. This time, I’ve used:
- Vegetable Stock
- Black Beans
- Fire Roasted Tomatoes
- Green Chiles
- Jalapeno Pepper
- Bell Pepper
Although I’ve used canned black beans, I would have preferred using dry black beans. I found this recipe for Instant Pot Black Beans and I’m going to try it next time so I can have some black beans readily available.
I’ve decided on these Hunt’s Fire Roasted Tomatoes because I am purposely going for lots of flavor in this black bean soup. The fire roasting adds even more flavor.
Just 3 Easy Steps
The steps are very easy and you can have your black bean soup simmering before you know it.
- Chop your vegetables
- Saute the vegetables in olive oil
- Add the other tasty ingredients
- Cover and simmer
You know you have time to do that, right?
Can I Use An Instant Pot?
Although I’ve been loving the Instant Pot, I decided not to use it here. I’m not really cooking anything. It’s mainly just heating everything up. I decided it would just be easier to cook this on the stove top.
If you want to use an Instant Pot, go ahead and saute your vegetables then add the other ingredients. Since everything is cooked already, maybe just pressure cook it for 3 minutes and let it natural release. If you cook it any longer, the black beans may break open and turn into mush. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.
