3. Crispy Carnitas

Pork carnitas probably most favored to be served up as tacos. Because well, tacos are life. I’ve made them quite often before in a crock pot…aka a slow cooker. So making them in a “fast” cooker like the Instant Pot makes for a late in the day planned dinner still a success that evening.

Crockpots take planning…and well…we aren’t all cut out for that (don’t judge me!). Simply cook the meat in your Instant Pot, and transfer to a baking sheet if you desire that crisp up, and voila!

4. Quick & Easy Macaroni & Cheese

Don’t you dare pull out that boxed mac! You can make a homemade Forkly version of this comfort food in an Instant Pot with the same amount of time as the boxed version takes. Actually, maybe even less. Try 4 minutes!

All you need are a few minutes to get the gourmet feel of a home-cooked dinner. Once you get a taste of the cheese and garlic powder combo, you’ll never want boxed mac and cheese again.

6. Popcorn

My kids are going through this phase of homemade popcorn. No, not the microwave kind. The oil on the stovetop kind. It takes much…babysitting. Not to complain, but this way of making popcorn is much much better. It’s also super unique and gives you another reason to use the Instant Pot.

The recipe from Temecula Blogs takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. Add some salt to flavor and feel free to customize your popcorn with other ingredients like M&Ms, caramel sauce, or whatever else you’re craving.

75. Better-Than-Takeout Low Carb Egg Roll in a Bowl

Egg rolls are delicious, but they’re crazy unhealthy because they’re usually deep fried in those little wrappers! They’re also a lot of work to make from scratch and I actively avoid using a deep-fryer because that’s bound to end in a trip to the hospital for me.
