Black Beans with Bacon and Tequila

Bacon gives these beans a subtle smokiness, and chipotle chilies add both smoke and spice. If you decide to use the optional tequila, save your top-shelf bottle for sipping; any inexpensive tequila worked well here. Offer the beans as a side to any Tex-Mex or Mexican-style main, or use them as a filling in tacos and burritos. Or make a light meal out of them by serving with rice, sour cream and salsa. Refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for up to three days; when reheating, thin with broth or water to the desired consistency.

Tip

Don't soak the black beans. In the Instant Pot, the unsoaked beans were plump and tender after only 35 minutes of pressure cooking and after 7 to 8 hours of slow cooking. Soaked beans will end up overdone if cooked for the same amount of time.
