Can’t wait to serve this again! You’ll get raves from your guests! This is so great for easy casual entertaining because you can spend a lot more time with your guests while this is cooking. Serve it in a dish as a side, or for burrito wraps. It makes fantastic left-overs if you have any! And, in case you’re wondering, an instant pot is the same kind of appliance as an electric pressure cooker. And, it’s not instant, either! But both sure do make it easy to add the ingredients and walk away. When you return, you’ve got a perfectly cooked pot of beans and rice that you didn’t have to monitor to avoid a boil over or keep to the right temperature, at all! So, you don’t need a rice cooker, either. Dry black beans and brown rice take about the same time to cook. And here’s an important tip: don’t add the salt while cooking. It keeps the beans from softening, so just add the salt at the end.
