  • No-Salt-Added Black Beans – You can use canned black beans with no added salt, or even make my favorite low sodium spicy black beans in your pressure cooker too!
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • No-Salt-Added Vegetable Stock or vegetable broth – to slow simmer the beans and spices in.
  • Spices – chili powder, cumin, cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder.
