When I was down in Georgia, my daughter and I were in the kitchen when she took a few minutes to sort out her pantry. With all the wedding preparations, visitors doing the shopping and cooking, adding and using things, she was just about fit to be tied. One thing she had in abundance was chickpeas. And when she asked me about using the Instant Pot for them, I knew I had to get this post on Instant Pot Chickpeas out.
I’ve been on a mission to post out some no effort Instant Pot recipes that I think my daughter and her fam will love, and I hope you might, too. See, my daughter was married recently, and her blended family consists of seven children ranging from toddler to teenager! I’m still a bit boggled by it all, but Southwestern Chicken Instant Pot Bowls are the kind of recipe I think almost anyone will love. The prep is nominal, the cook time short, clean up is a breeze and the results? Delish. These bowls are perfect for summer – or anytime.
One of my very favorite meals on my site is Guatemalan Chicken in Coconut Milk, Pollo en Leche de Coco. It’s the perfect thing for a cold, winter day – fast and easy and flavor for days! In the past, I’ve served the dish with rice cooked in coconut milk instead of how I first had it, with Guatemalan Rice & Beans.
It’s been pretty bitter in the Twin Cities, but we’re having a little heatwave and are up to 12 degrees. Which would be great if we didn’t get about 7 inches of snow last night and even better if the high tomorrow wasn’t expected to be -5 with a low of -25 and worse on Wednesday. But that’s exactly the time you want soup! And even better a pretty much pantry soup (if your pantry is anything like mine) and not just any soup. You want this little White Chicken Chili Slow Cooker – Instant Pot – Stovetop number coz it’s going to warm you from the inside out!
I grew up on Old Fashioned Three Bean Salad and if you’re from the Midwest, I bet you did, too! There’s just nothing like fresh garden beans soaking up all the sweet, tangy marinade!
It’s a perfect summer salad for a potluck or to have on hand to fill out dinners or lunches. On a hot day, Old Fashioned Three Bean Salad is so cool and refreshing!
