I finally got an Instant Pot for Christmas.  For months I didn’t know what everyone was raving about and I didn’t really care.  I had a slow cooker, why did I need something else?   Turns out, I needed it because it’s fast and makes cooking easy!

One thing I love about the Instant Pot is that I can put frozen meat in it and it will be cooked within 30 minutes.  This is awesome for days when I forget to take meat out of the freezer.   Plus, having a meal cooked in 30 minutes is perfect for me as a busy working mom who wants to spend time with my baby whenever I’m home.

Now in January there is a lot of talk about Game Day food because of the play offs.  I like football food as much as the next person but I haven’t been making much of it this year.  With my Instant Pot I was able to whip up Buffalo Chicken Dip using frozen chicken in just 20 minutes.  How awesome is that?

  1. 4 stars
    End result was very yummy! Exactly the taste I was hoping for.
    My Instant Pot did not like the lack of liquid, I got the burn warning a couple of times and had to open it up to make sure everything was going smoothly. Maybe next time I’ll add a bit of water with the hot sauce to see if that helps.
    Still delicious and didn’t take much longer than 20 minutes even with the issues.
