Ingredients:1 medium onion, peeled and halved
2 cups dried pinto beans, rinsed( 1 pound)
4 teaspoons canola oil
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 1/4 teaspoons black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cumin
2 bay leaves
8 cups water
salt to taste-do not add with about ingredients
Directions:Add everything above, except salt to electric pressure cooker. Lock top in place and cook for 30 minutes under high pressure. Once finished, let natural pressure release(let it release pressure itself, when it is done it will allow you to easily open).
Drain beans, but set aside liquid. Remove onions and bay leaves and discard.
Start mashing beans with a potato masher. Add liquid as needed while mashing beans, until desired consistently. Add salt to taste, once mashed.
