  • 1 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • ½ red onion chopped
  • 2 cups chopped bell pepper any color (about 1 large bell pepper)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper optional
  • 1 (15 oz.) can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 ½ cups prepared salsa fresh or jarred
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 corn tortillas or tostada shells
  • Toppings of choice: salsa chopped green onions, sliced avocado, chopped fresh cilantro, crumbled queso fresco (or feta).


  • Set Instant Pot to Sauté Mode. Add olive oil and allow oil to heat up. Once hot, add onion and bell pepper and sauté until tender (about 5 minutes). Press CANCEL to turn off Sauté Mode, and immediately stir in cumin and cayenne with a wooden spoon while pot is still hot.
  • Add black beans, salsa and ½ cup water to the Instant Pot. Stir well, making sure to scrap bottom of the Instant Pot to loosen any bits of onion and peppers that may have stuck to bottom of pot. Using a spoon scoop out a small amount of sauce to make 6 “wells” for the eggs. These “wells” will help keep the egg in place while cooking.
  • Crack one egg into a small bowl (or ramekin) careful not to break yolk. Lower bowl into Instant Pot and pour egg into the “well”. Repeat with the remaining eggs until all eggs are placed in the Instant Pot.
  • Secure the lid and set valve to SEALING Set Instant Pot to MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK on LOW PRESSURE for 0 minutes. When the pot has come up to pressure the screen will show L0:00. Immediately do a QUICK RELEASE to remove steam/pressure.
  • Optional Step- Warm tortillas in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat or in the microwave (wrapped in a damp paper towel for 30 seconds-1 minute).
  • Remove lid from Instant Pot and use a spoon to scoop eggs and salsa onto tortillas. For a crispier option serve over tostada shells. Top with additional salsa and your choice of toppings. Serve immediately.
