How To Make Simple Instant Pot Kidney Beans

With just a few cups of water and a bunch of beans, you can now make easy and tenderly cooked kidney beans in the instant pot to add to your favorite dish.

Prep: 23 mins
Cook: 40 mins
Total: 1 hr 3 mins


  • 1 cup kidney beans
  • cups water, or vegetable broth for more flavor


  1. Add kidney beans and water to the instant pot and stir to prevent sticking.

  2. Pressure cook on High for 38 to 40 minutes. Instant pot will take about 8 minutes to pressurize before cooking begins.

  3. Once the timer goes off, allow to naturally release for 15 minutes, then release any remaining pressure. Carefully remove lid once steam has fully escaped and strain off any excess cooking liquid.

  4. Enjoy immediately in stews, soups, chili, pasta, salads, or alongside steamed or sautéed greens.
