Hearty and filling, Instant Pot black bean soup is an easy weeknight dinner. Perfect for chilly evenings when a bowl of something warm and comforting is calling your name.


Hit "sauté" function on the Instant Pot.  Add olive oil and when pot is warm, add onion, celery, peppers and garlic.

Let pressure release naturally for 15 minutes, then manually release.  Check the soup for seasoning and add more salt and/or pepper.

Using an immersion blender, purée soup in pot or blend in regular blender and serve with diced red onion, diced bell pepper, avocado, sour cream, plantain chips, cilantro and lime wedges.

Full of Cuban flavors, this Instant Pot black bean soup can be as chunky or as smooth as you like it.
