  • Instant Pot 3 Qt. Mini ( can be doubled for a larger 6 Qt. Pot)
  • Stock Pot
  • Ladle
  • Bamboo Spurtles¬†
  • Kitchen Scissors (cutting up Bacon)
  • Cutting Board
  • Knife


  • 4 15 oz Black Beans we like the spicy version for more flavor- if using these only lightly drained to keep some of the flavor.
  • 10 slices Applewood Smoked Bacon diced- optional, omit for a Vegetarian Meal
  • 2 tbsp Garlic minced
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 1 32 oz Vegetable Broth
  • 1 14.5 oz Fire Roasted Tomatoes drained
  • 2 tbsp BBQ Sauce
  • 2 tsp Worchester Sauce we prefer Lea & Perrins
  • 2 tbsp Chili Powder
  • 2 tbsp Olive Olive *not needed if you are using bacon grease
  • 1 cup Sour Cream garnish
  • 1 bag Cheddar Cheese garnish
  • 1 bunch Cilantro garnish


  • If you are choosing to use bacon, cut slices in the chunks. Set you Instant Pot to saute and cook for 7-8 minutes, until done.
  • Use the bacon grease to saute your onions, peppers and garlic for 5 minutes. NOTE- If you are NOT using bacon add 2 tbsp oil to Instant Pot for the saute method.
  • Next add in your beans, light drained, and tomatoes.
  • Add in your broth to the fill line and stir in BBQ Sauce, Worcestershire, and chili powder.
  • Place lid on Instant Pot, and cook at high pressure for 12 minutes
  • Once cooking is complete, quick vent your Instant Pot, and use a hand held blender or potato masher for a smoother texture.
  • Garnish with sour cream, cheddar cheese and cilantro (optional)
