This was the best recipe for pinto beans I have tried. Super easy and could be ate alone, in taco, enchiladas, haystacks, taco salad. Original recipe from Pudge Factor.
Instant Pot Mexican Smashed Pinto Beans
I am sorry no picture at this time.
Place all ingredients in instant pot. Cover and select bean/chili. This sets for 30 minutes. Cook on normal pressure.
Once depressurized remove lid. Stir well.
I used a masher to mash the beans to the consistency we like.
Wonderful vegetarian option of a french dip sandwich. Original recipe from Cooking Light.
Mushroom French Dip Sandwich
Heat butter and 1 1/2 tsp oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, stir occasionally for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and cool until golden brown. About 30 minutes, add salt and cook for 5 minutes.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in separate skillet. Arrange half of portobello mushrooms in a single layer and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes. Stir and cook until golden brown all over, about 5 minutes. Transfer mushroom to bowl and repeat until all mushrooms are cooked.
Return cooked mushroom to pan and add broth, sherry, thyme, soy sauce, Worcestershire, and pepper. Bring mixture to boil-reduce and simmer, about 5 minutes. Using tongs remove mushrooms and divide the sauce into four small containers (to dip sandwich in)
Stir mustard and horseradish together and slather on top of half of rolls.
Preheat boiler to high. Arrange 3/4c mushroom half of roll. Add 1/4c onion. Top with slice of Swiss cheese and broil. Cooks for about 1-2 minutes until cheese melts.

Instant Pot Vegi Chili
Flavorful chili that is quick and easy to make.
Combine the beans, tomatoes, ketchup, garlic, taco seasoning, red onion, chilis, broth in your instant pot. Stir thoroughly. Program to bean/chili and let cook.
About 10 minutes before the pot is done pour olive oil in skillet. Brown your vegi crumbles. I like them to be a bit crisp for texture. Once the chili is done pour the crumbles in and stir.
Ready to serve and top with your garnishes.
*For the vegi crumbles I used the Smart Ground Mexican
You could easily make this in a crockpot as well.
If you wanted to use ground chicken, turkey, or beef you could substitute as well.
