Instant Pot Southern Style Pinto Beans w/ Ham

Gotta love southern food!  We if you live in the south you do 🙂

One of my favs is beans and ham. Any kind of beans will do but pintos are one of my favorites! This is a fantastic use for a leftover ham hock, you know the kind that have left when you get done with a spiral ham!

This quick and easy meal can be put on in the morning and will be ready for dinner! OR can be quickly cooked in under 30 minutes with little effort if you are running late!

Match this with my Vortex Air Fryer Cornbread and you have a fantastic meal with little effort!
