Easy Instant Pot Red Beans And Rice

It's easy to make red beans and rice in the instant pot.


One of our favorite frugal weekday meals is red beans and rice. It’s filling, tasty, and just about cooks itself. There’s no soaking or stirring of the posts needed. If you’re wondering how to cook those red beans and rice everyone talks about as a great frugal meal to help you save money, this is what they are talking about. Of course you don’t have to cook them in the Instant Pot, but it makes it quick and easy. If you have one, give this recipe a try and see if your family likes it.


The recipe as is feeds a family of four comfortably with enough red beans and rice leftover to make burritos the next day. I reheat the bean and rice mixture, put it on flour tortillas, top it with shredded cheese and wrap it up. I serve it with salsa and sour cream on the side. You can also add any other leftovers in the fridge to the burritos. Shredded chicken or beef works well, as do assorted vegetables. Use up anything and everything that’s about to go bad that sounds like it would work in a burrito.
