  • Add peanuts to the Instant Pot.  Add enough water to cover the peanuts. Add salt and Taco seasoning.
  • Put a trivet on top of the peanuts and a bowl or plate on top to keep peanuts from floating up. (I used my Instant Pot Pyrex bowl as a weight.) 
  • Close the lid and turn the valve to a Sealing position.  Press the "Pressure Cook" or "Manual" button and set the time to 1 hour on High pressure.
  • When it's done cooking, quick release (QR) the steam.   Drain the boiled peanuts and serve.


*If not using Taco seasoning, increase the amount of salt to 1/3 cup, as Taco seasoning contains some salt.
**Boiled peanuts will keep in a refrigerator for 1 week.  You can also freeze them in a ziploc bags for up to 6 months.
