Charro Beans Shared By Thomas George
Using a pressure cooker (like an Insta Pot) on “saute” or “high heat” setting, cook bacon until browned and moderately crispy. Remove bacon from its grease and saute onions, peppers, garlic, and spicy peppers until slightly soft and lightly browned (about 3-5 minutes). Add the cooked bacon and all remaining ingredients, stir, cover, and cook under pressure for 48 minutes, then allow steam to release naturally over time. Make sure “keep warm” feature is turned off. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
Note: I personally prefer to soak beans overnight and cook in a cast iron Dutch oven, following same process as above, but simmering beans over low to medium-low heat until tender.
