Instant Pot Smokey Chicken Burrito Bowls THM E

This recipe uses an instant pot. You don’t have to though. You can make this on your stove or in your crockpot. For a crockpot, I would follow the instructions for the IP but cook on low for 6-8 hours. Most IP recipes and crockpot recipes are interchangeable. I like crockpots most of the time because I like to get the meal prepped and not think about it until dinner. This gives me free time at night. With an IP I have more hands on things to do at night. Now I say all of that to say, the IP can be a huge blessing in my kitchen. When I am busy and have to leave the house quickly, I can still get a home cooked meal made at the last minute and there is no need to to a drive thru or feed the kids cereal. I think and IP and a crockpot both have places in the kitchen.

This is one of those recipes that is versatile and can be spiced or even have a little less if you need to. Top your kids bowls with sour cream and cheese. I stirred a triangle of laughing cow cheese into mine and my hubby’s. We both loved this recipe and I hope you will too. I bought everything, except the IP, at Aldi.
