Step by Step method

  • Step 1

    Instructions for Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot or other): In a blender add onion, garlic, and diced tomatoes. Blend on high speed for few seconds.

  • Step 2

    Add beans, cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and blended onion-garlic-tomato mix to pressure cooker, also add enough water to cover the beans (about 3-4 cups). Set cooking time for 25 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Instructions for stove top: If you are cooking chili on the stove top, I would suggest to soak beans overnight or use BPA-free cans of precooked beans. Blend onion, garlic and diced tomatoes in a blender. Pour into a large cooking pot, add in cumin, smoked paprika, salt, and canned beans. Add about 2 cups of water and bring everything to a boil; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. If using fresh beans, soaked overnight, you may need to add 3-4 cups of water and cook on medium to low heat until beans are tender.

  • Step 4

    Top with shredded cheese and serve with your favorite bread or tortilla chips.
