One of the easiest things to make in the Instant Pot is Bean Dip – and while it might be something that’s quite popular in Mexican restaurants (usually with a huge bowl of chips)… it’s quite expensive to take a family of 7 out for dinner.
Yikes and Yikes – if and when we happen to eat out, and it’s not often, it’s usually at least $35 – $50, if not more… even if we try to watch what we buy. As much as I love eating out every now and then, it’s not something we can make a habit of because it gets incredibly expensive.
This bean dip is absolutely incredible… it is SO stinkin’ easy, and the kids go wild for it. We use our Instant Pot to throw it together – dump the ingredients in the pot, turn it on and go tackle on another project for a little while (like cleaning the truck outside!)
Set the pot for 45 minutes and patiently wait.
Once the pot beeps done, the beans should have soaked up most of the water, so pour the entire contents into the blender and hit puree – add in 1 tsp of salt and 1 tsp of chili powder (or more to taste). Voila – you have easy bean dip that doesn’t break the bank.
Sprinkle a little queso fresco on the top and enjoy with some tortilla chips while it’s still hot. The dip refrigerates well, so if you have any left, just cover with saran wrap and heat up the next day for the family.
Just give it a quick stir after popping it back in the microwave and dive right back in.
