Instant Pot Southwest Chicken Bowl Recipe
I had been planning on making this recipe for a while and this weekend was the perfect time to do it. I ran around doing errands all weekend and sat down to rest and fell asleep for a while.
When I woke up, I realized I needed to get dinner ready and it was getting late.
I pulled out my Instant Pot and ingredients and layered the frozen Chicken, the spices, salsa, rice, beans, and broth and in under 20 minutes, it was cooked.
I now had the choice to let it vent naturally for 15 additional minutes or let out the pressure little by little. I took that time and cleaned the kitchen up before we ate, got out some fruit for dessert and it was on the table.
The only sad thing was, we started eating before I put out the grated cheese. It was actually delicious without it, but we got a few bites in with some. It was also my Mother in Law’s birthday so we had these birthday cupcakes.
