What beans are you trying to replicate, Rudys?
Pappasito's. Only one's I had so can't say they're the best. I was surprised just how good they were and now I understand why so many people here are into them. Never had beans like that.

Oh yeah, everything is pretty good there including the beans.

They do them more soupy if I recall correctly.
I also think they use chicken stock or chicken bullion rather than straight water and salt. So keep that in mind as you are tinkering trying to replicate their beans.

Is this method still working for you Carlo? I been soaking but might give this a go.
Oh yeah, made a pot just this Sunday. Used bacon that was on sale. I find the cured neck bones and stuff like that do the best but bacon is simple and no picking out bones.

The max 120min on the Instant Pot nails it every time.

You can also short cut and use a can of Rotel instead of buying Pico.
You can even eliminate the Pico/Rotel if you like but having that bit of tomato in the dish makes it sooooooooo good!

Give it a shot. It's soooo much faster than having a pot on a stove all day with these beans.
Let me know if you do it and how it turns out! :)

I’m thinking Mexican food is the ticket for me next week. Have a 5 lbs bag of precooked chicken thigh pieces from GFS to use up. Gonna spice it up with fajita seasoning and do fajitas all week. Charro will be the perfect side
