Instant Pot Ranch Style Beans

What are Ranch  Style Beans?

Ranch style beans are pinto  beans with a mild  chili flavored sauce. They can be used in chili, incorporated  into baked beans,  or eaten just  as is.

Instant Pots  make cooking these up very easy work.

Healthier  Ranch Style Beans

The Ranch style brand beans are very popular as a convenience  item. But they may not be the most  wholesome or healthy.

While  canned  beans can contain partially hydrogenated soybean  oils that  include trans fats, this  home made version will  not. And you can see every ingredient that goes into  it.

These  Ranch style  beans contain dried pinto beans, Ranchera  sauce, salsa, spices, beef broth and water. All very recognizable.

  1. We are having a fiesta for the Teen’s birthday on Sunday. I think these may be going on the table instead of refried beans. Thanks Sue.
