In today's busy world there are a lot of people that have simply given up on cooking and healthy meal at home. They, instead, stop by the fast food stores on the way home and pick up high salt, high fat, low fiber, chemically laden junk food to eat for dinner. Not only that, but a hamburger that used to cost $1.25 now costs about $5.00, plus fries and a Coke. Multiply that by a family of four and you've spent nearly $30 on a pile of food that will harm your health. You could, instead, cook a healthy meal in about a half hour for less than a quarter of that cost.
An Instant Pot Is Faster Than Fast Food
In the amount of time that it takes to go to the local fast food restaurant, you could chop up some vegetables, some boneless skinless chicken breasts, and add some rice, then serve up a healthy meal that tastes fantastic.
You only add the salt you want, and there is very little fat involved, plus the whole meal will cook in about 25 minutes. Try going to the drive-thru and making it home in that amount of time. So not only are you eating better, for far less money, but actually saving time as well. You can't beat a computer controlled pressure cooker for a win-win-win situation.
You Can Cook Large Quantities Ahead
Making homemade chili in your instant pot is so easy that you'll be tempted to do it every single night. Regular red beans or kidney beans are at the heart of the meal. But first you start by browning the ground beef right in the Instant Pot on simmer. Once that's done, throw in your beans, the recommended amount of water, then brown sugar, onions, tomatoes, and green peppers, plus salt, pepper, garlic, and hot sauce. Your chili will be ready in about 45 minutes, how cool is that?
The real time saver is that you can make up to 6 quarts of homemade chili in just one batch. Then, all you have to do is eat what you want for that meal, save some in the fridge, and save the rest in the freezer for later. It will keep in the freezer for months and anytime you need a fast lunch or dinner, all you have to do is throw it in the microwave and you'll have homemade chili that costs but a fraction of what comes out of a can. You'll be amazed.
Not only that, but you can make your chili without any meat and then choose from a variety of different meats when it's time to eat. Just take your "meat choice of the night" and brown it in the skillet, add your bean only chili and you'll have a different meal every night.
The Instant Pot is a very versatile machine and all you have to do is Google search any recipe you desire and you'll find exact instructions on how to cook it. There are so many people using Instant Pots now that every recipe known has been converted and is available online.
