Mmmmm… nachos. Yay… pressure cooker! We like beans. Had you guessed?


IMG_1065web1 lb pinto beans
1 medium onion chopped
jalapeños, halved
1-2 stalks celery, chopped
2 T turmeric
2 T chili powder
2 T cumin
2 T vegetable broth powder
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
2 T olive oil
Salt to taste
Nacho chips
Romaine lettuce


Throw beans, onions, celery, jalapenos, chili powder, turmeric, cumin, and vegetable broth powder into the pressure cooker. Add 2 T olive oil and water to about 2-3 inches above beans.

Place lid on cooker and bring to high pressure. Allow to cook 25 minutes. Turn off heat and allow the cooker to naturally depressurize. After it is safe to open, check beans to see if they are soft. If not, return to heat and cook longer (with or without lid).

Once beans are nicely soft, drain off most of the water and use a stick blender or food processor to blend the bean mix, adding nutritional yeast gradually.

Serve with nacho chips, lettuce, black olives, salsa, etc.
