I’ve had Feijoada on my mind for a long time. I made Feijoada years ago but it was one of those “Hey, it’s not you, it’s me” kind of things. It was ok, but not great. It wasn’t until I tasted a lot more Brazilian food that I “got” not just the flavor but the spirit of the dish and what a difference that has made. But guess what? This time I did it in my Instant Pot. And it was easy! So here, for your dining pleasure is Instant Pot Brazilian Feijoada!
My son and I had the best time making these little Pulled Pork Mini Bells the other day. They were each just a perfect scrumptious little bite or two and I thought they might make a great lower carb option for a casual holiday party or a game day. Fair warning: they’re a crowd pleaser and are going to go fast!
If you’ve been a follower (and if not, I’d love if you would; signups for email, facebook, and twitter are to the right) ya gotta know by now that I am a Soup lover, and def a Chili lover (they are all on my main index for Soups Chowders & Chili.) I have all kinds of Chili on my site ranging from old school to family-friendly, green to red, and a few grown-up ones. This Spicy Black Bean Chili is in that last category.
Bean burritos once saved my life. Seriously. When I broke my foot, the docs sent me home thinking it was a sprain. What a mess that was – my back went out from using the crutches. I couldn’t stand up, each movement was agony and I spent several days crawling around the house. I happened to have a few groceries I hadn’t put away on the table and I was able to cobble together some bean burritos. They weren’t as well put together as these Freezer Friendly Burritos, heck, I couldn’t even warm them up, but as they say, “Hunger is the best sauce!”
Do you have your top secret Ninja ways to make plain old canned baked beans taste more like homemade? I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve, depending on what kind of beans I want. Most of the time when I’m Doctoring Canned Baked Beans, I’m looking for kind of delish New England style, a bit zippy, a little sweet and super flavorful and that’s what these are.
