I like a little heat every now and again, so I prepared these Spicy Instant Pot Green Beans. Let me warn you, if you don’t like HEAT, don’t use this seasoning. Substitute the seasoning for something else. Some sort of season salt would be a good option.

  1. Cut bacon into pieces for frying. Set aside.
  2. Dice your onions and bell peppers. Set aside.
  3. Mince the garlic. Set aside.
  4. Prepare the green beans if necessary. I purchased the fresh green beans that are ready to use.
  5. Turn your instant pot on Saute.
  6. Add Olive Oil.
  7. Once the olive oil is hot, add the bacon.
  8. Fry the bacon until crispy. 5 - 7 minutes or so.
  9. Remove from the pot and drain if you would like. I pushed the bacon to one side.
  10. Drop your onions and bell peppers in. Saute for 3 - 5 minutes or until tender. Don't burn.
  11. Stir in the garlic 1 - 2 minutes. Don't burn.
  12. Mix everything together, Bacon, onions, bell peppers and garlic.
  13. Add chicken stock. Stir.
  14. Add green beans. Stir.
  15. Switch setting to bean/chili setting. Set for 30 -35 minutes on high or until tender.
  16. Add Slap ya mama hot seasoning, garlic powder, smoked paprika, onion powder. Stir.
  17. Add water. Stir.
  18. Place a lid on top. I have the clear instant pot lid so I use that instead of the regular instant pot lid. Works better with this recipe.
  19. Halfway through drop in a 1/4 tbsp of butter (optional step).
  20. Taste and add Kosher salt to taste if necessary. (optional step).
  21. Enjoy.
