  • 1/2 pound black beans
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 lb bacon diced
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 ancho chilies diced


  • Quick soak the beans by placing them in the pressure cooker with 4 cups water. Lock the lid in place, bring to HIGH pressure and cook for 2 minutes. Release the pressure, drain and rinse the beans in cold water.
  • Return the beans to the pressure cooker along with the 1 tablespoon oil (to reduce foaming), season with salt, and cover with 4 cups water. Lock the lid in place, bring to HIGH pressure and cook for 7 minutes. Release the pressure, drain, rinse the beans, and set aside.
  • In the pressure cooker, sauté the diced bacon over medium heat. Remove the cooked bacon with a slotted spoon and set it aside. Remove all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat and use this to sauté the onion, garlic, and chilies.
  • When the onion is transparent, return the beans and reserved bacon to the cooker. Season with salt and pepper. Simmer for 5 minutes to allow the seasonings and blend before serving.
