Basic No-Soak Beans: For perfectly cooked beans every time, this has got to be your go-to method. Creating a creamy center yet keeping the skins in tact, this simple technique can be used with dried beans such as navy, pinto, black, or cannellini beans. Cooking the beans this way is way simpler than the typical overnight process, and not to mention, a great way to stretch your dollars. These beans can be used in chili, tacos, dips, and other dishes that call for cooked beans.
