No Soak Pinto Bean Soup
An hour of pressure cooking transforms dried beans into a delicious soup that’s ready to serve the same day - no soaking required!
Add all ingredients to the Instant Pot - the dried beans, chicken stock, smoked ham hock, olive oil, and seasonings.
Set the Instant Pot to cook on High Pressure for 1 hour. Opt to keep the warming function on.
Do a Natural Release, which will take 45 minutes to 1 hour. Open the Instant Pot and remove the pork hock.
Use a stick blender to blend for 30 seconds to create a semi-creamy soup, leaving some of the beans intact.
Remove the skin/fat/bones from the smoked pork hock, shred the meat, and add back into the soup.
Garnish with crumbly cheese and fresh herbs. Enjoy!
