How to make 15 Bean Soup in the Instant Pot

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

I’m making 15 Bean Soup in the Instant Pot. It was perfect.. especially since its cold outside. If you determine to try this recipe, let me know in the comments below.


15 Bean Soup:
8 cups of water/chicken broth
2 bay leaves
1 lb of sausage (I used butterball turkey sausage)
1 chopped bell pepper (optional- I didn’t use it)
1 onion (I used white onion, but yellow onion is fine)
2 sliced celery ribs
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 can of chopped tomatoes with green chiles (16 oz)


1. put your instant pot on saute mode. Let it heat up until the display reads “hot”. Add one tablespoon of olive oil
2. Saute your onions, celery, and peppers if you choose to use them.
3. Add in your sausage
5. Add in your beans
6.Add in your tomatoes followed by your cumin, garlic, black pepper, tomato paste, and bay leaves.
7. Add in your chicken broth
8.Add in your smoked meat or ham (I used Turkey Tails/Butt)
9.Give it a excellent stir
10. Close your lid and seal the valve
11. Turn off the saute mode and choose the bean/chili mode and set for 100 minutes.

The instant pot released pressure naturally because I dozed off… but it was fine! I filmed the video as it was sitting for over an hour, but we didn’t eat until it was sitting for 3 hours! It was perfect though. It even thickened up since it sat a little longer, which was fine with me too. If you’re not in a hurry to eat, let it sit!

You may eat this soup with rice if you want to top it with that, but my family and I just at it as is. You can even make some cornbread or something on the side as well.
