  1. After the beans have soaked and have been drained and rinsed, add them to the stainless steel insert of your Instant Pot.

  2. Add enough water to cover the beans by 2 inches.

  3. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, checking the seal and closing the vent.

  4. Press the "Manual" or "Pressure Cook" button and adjust the time to 9 minutes on high pressure. When it beeps, allow the pot to naturally release pressure for 10 minutes, then release remaining pressure.

  5. Add the salt, garlic powder, cumin, chopped cilantro, and lime juice. If extra lime flavor is desired, add lime zest as well. Stir to combine.

  6. Serve and enjoy!
