For a while, the Instant Pot was all the rage – for good reason! This multi-cooker reduces cooking times significantly, making it ideal for busy schedules. Its ability to pressure cook, sauté and slow cook means you can create a wide range of dishes, from tender roasts to perfect rice, all in one appliance. Ready to re-embrace the convenience and creativity of your Instant Pot? Read on for three new recipes.

1- Instant Pot Birria Tacos

Birria tacos are all about slow cooking meat in an aromatic broth – a technique perfect for the Instant Pot! For our version, we use chuck – shank, brisket or even short ribs work well! We season the meat with Achiote Blend and load up the cooking liquid with Guajillo and Ancho Chiles, onion, ginger, garlic and whole spices. The Instant Pot does the work of cooking the meat until fork tender, and that jus? Divine. Griddle up the tacos with lots of cheese and serve with the cooking juices for dipping. A delicious quesabirria experience in a fraction of the time!

2- Instant Pot Basmati Jeweled Rice

This colorful dish is a take on Persian Jeweled Rice features fragrant basmati rice, dried fruit, nuts and loads of flavor. This Instant Pot version builds lots of flavor by sauteeing the raw rice in Tikka Blend along with lots of aromatics. A quick pressure cook results in a side dish that’s as beautiful as it is delicious!

3- Instant Pot Refried Beans

These no-soak refried beans are a great way to get this restaurant favorite right at home. We use Cuban Spice Rub along with lots of aromatics to create a pot of refried beans that are an affordable meal prep solution. They pressure cook in the Instant Pot in under an hour, and it makes a big batch! Load them up with tomatoes, avocado, jalapeno and cheese for a satisfying lunch. Or serve them alongside tacos – try our Birria Tacos! Portion them and freeze them so that they’re at the ready on busy weeknights.
