Pinto Beans with Jalapeno Sausage

Being from the south, we love our pinto beans. Before the Instant Pot came along, it was a long affair in the slow cooker. But no more - you can have your beans ready to eat in less than an hour for the entire family to enjoy!

Pinto Beans with Jalapeno Sausage
by Glenn Edwards

Here's what you're going to need:
1 package of Jalapeno sausage, sliced into half-inch rounds
1 medium yellow onion, cut into quarters
5 cups of water
1/2 of a 6-ounce package of Canadian bacon, cut into quarters
1/2 of a 24-ounce package of thick-cut peppered bacon (pre-cooked in the oven and torn into 1-inch pieces)
1 pound of dried pinto beans (rinsed and soaked overnight)
1/2 cup of sweet jalapenos

Start by slicing the jalapeño sausage and onion and sauté in your IP. Next add the 5 cups of water, as well as Canadian bacon, peppered bacon and pinto beans (that have been drained) and mix well. Select the Bean setting on your Instant Pot and adjust time to 20 minutes. As always, allow it to come up to pressure which may take 15-20 minutes. Once the timer expires, allow it to NR for 10 minutes, then do manual release and serve!

As a side note, if you desire, make your favorite cornbread recipe to have with it!
