Easy Instant Pot Recipes Are Golden

The Instant Pot has revolutionized cooking for so many people recently. Between it and the air fryer I am not sure how we ever cooked meals before. Anyways this is one you are going to need to pin for later and come back to.

When Travel Changes Your Taste

My Instant Pot Chicken Chimichangas will knock your socks off. I haven’t always loved Mexican food. In fact, I was traditionally a bit concerned it was too spicy for me. But the last few years we have really done an about turn on that one. Travel to Mexico and Puerto Vallarta has made me into a huge Mexican food fan.

Family Favourites

Now we enjoy Mexican foods and Spanish flavours often here. Enchiladas, tacos, fajitas and burritos are the best. We also make an amazing bean quesadilla recipe from time to time that is insanely good. The kids go crazy for it and ask for it all the time. It’s pretty simple too. I will have to share that one soon.
