Stew Recipe
1-1/2lbs of Meat Marinade

Ready In 90 Minutes, No Soaking Required!

This recipe takes the lowly Pinto Bean and elevates it to “Where have you been all my life?” in just ninety minutes. Pintos are a NM favorite, and you’ll find them on many a table, no matter what the meal. After all, what other state do you know that boasts a town that holds a Pinto Bean Festival every year and crowns the annual “Bean Queen?” That would be Moriarty. Just not that Moriarty!


  1. Rinse well & drain Pinto Beans using a strainer
  2. Add Beans to the Instant Pot
  3. Add the Water, Bullion, Bacon & Min’s Glorieta Glory Marinade
  4. Give everything a good, mixing stir
  5. Close & Lock the lid (make sure it is not set on “Vent”)
  6. Cook on HIGH pressure for 1 hour and allow to release naturally (around 30 minutes)
  7. Season to taste with Salt & Pepper
