  • 1 pound dried black beans
  • 1 tablespoon dried cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups fully cooked rice
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce or cabbage
  • Guacamole, salsa, sour cream, hot sauce, optional


  • Add the beans, garlic, cumin, and chili powder to the Instant Pot. Add 8 cups of water to an Instant Pot. Cook on high for 45 minutes and let the pressure naturally release. Remove the lid and stir in the salt.
  • Serve with the rice, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, and optional toppings in bowls.


  • This recipe makes enough beans for 2-3 meals depending on the size and appetites of your family. I freeze the leftover beans in meal-size portions until we’re ready to enjoy them.
  • To store beans: Let the beans cool and portion into airtight containers, freezer containers, or freezer storage bags. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw from frozen overnight in the fridge or at room temperature. I recommend freezing in portions that work for one meal for your family. I usually freeze 2 cup portions.
  • Set the toppings out and let everyone decide what to add to their own bowl.
  • Use the beans in tacos or quesadillas as desired.
