Ultimate Instant Pot Pinto Beans


  • 2 lbs pinto beans
  • 1 pkg Conecuh Hickory Smoked Sausage
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 1 medium onion
  • 10 oz Rotel Tomatoes
  • water


  • Sort through the beans. Take out broken or very discolored beans and rocks. (Yes, I've found rocks in my beans before, this is why I sort them now.)
  • Put beans into a colander and wash under cool water. Then, add them to the Instant Pot.
  • Slice or dice celery and onions and add them to the pot. (The size of the pieces is entirely up to you. We slice celery about a 1/4 in. thick, but dice the onions so they aren't detected by our small humans.)
  • Add the entire can of Rotel Tomatoes to the pot, juice and all.
  • Add water. The beans need to be fully submerged plus more water. (Approximately 8 - 10 cups.) I add enough water to come just under the MAX line in my 6 qt. Instant Pot.
  • Close up your Instant Pot and set on high pressure for 75 minutes.
  • When the timer goes off, release the pressure and serve.
