15 Bean Soup (Instant Pot)  is  my recipe of the day  with  the blogging  group Multicooker Monday. We’ve been meeting once per month to share our favorite recipes using small appliances.

I decided to share my recipe for 15 bean soup in the Instant Pot or electric pressure cooker.

I enjoy cooking ham and beans from time to time and also like picking  out various kinds of  beans to make that with. One of the prettier types  in the package is the 15 bean mix. Or whichever count they are using for the variety pack. They are very colorful and attractive.

I  topped  mine with  my recipe for slices of skillet  cornbread. I haven’t had a chance to post that  yet so feel free to use any  of the other  corn breads I have shared while you wait.  Muffins work too.

I also  like  a good sprinkle of chopped onion on  mine as well as  a green hot sauce aka jalapeno sauce such as Tabasco green. The flavors of the green  sauce are wonderful with beans.  I usually  prefer a red based sauce with something else.

But this makes for a great one  bowl  meal especially at  lunch or a cold  winter supper. And it’s going  to snow again this week! Yay! Just in time for Christmas. Plan on some beans to repurpose your extra ham! Happy  holidays, loves. ~s

  • Add everything else except the ham.
  • Cover and set the valve to closed.
  • Switch the pot off, and then turn back on to manual and set for 45 minutes.
  • Cool down cooker thirty minutes before releasing the steam valve so bean sediment does not clog it. Do not open if the cooker is still releasing steam through the valve.

  1. I keep a bag of that 15-bean mix in the pantry at all times! You never know when we’ll need a pot of bean soup. In fact, after seeing your lovely bowl, Sue, I feel the need coming on!
