Easy Instant Pot Recipe
The Instant Pot has truly changed my time in the kitchen. I was very skeptical of purchasing another kitchen gadget. I love my slow cooker and just wasn’t sure if an Instant Pot would really be worth the room it takes up in my kitchen. Enough of my friends were raving about their Instant Pot, that I finally caved in and bought one. I made a promise to myself that if I was going to spend the money on a new gadget then I really needed to put effort into loving it. It didn’t take much effort! I cooked in it at least every day for the first two weeks I had it. I have had mine now for 6 months and I generally use it a minimum of five times a week. It has even received a coveted spot on my limited kitchen counter. And it is easy Instant Pot recipes like these Creamy Rotel Chicken Tacos that keep me coming back for more.
BYO: Family Taco Night
Taco night is one of my favorite ideas for families with picky eaters because it is what I call a “Build Your Own” meal. Build your own meals give you the opportunity to offer a variety of toppings to make everyone in your family happy. Basic cheese or lettuce for your picky eaters and jalapenos and pineapple salsa for your adventurous taco lovers. You can set up your taco night buffet style so each person can choose what they want on their plates. We have one rule at our house: You must eat some of the meat filling!

Simply heat up your leftover Creamy Rotel Chicken and add it along with your favorite toppings to your salad. Add a couple of tortilla chips to the side for a yummy crunch.
- Quesadilla- Ready in just a couple of minutes! Simply add your chicken and a little shredded cheese to half of a tortilla and fold the tortilla over. Brown in a non-stick skillet or under the broiler.
- Nachos-Got a little of this and a little of that leftover from your taco night? A nacho is a perfect leftover lunch. I love to make mine in the oven, line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, layer chips, creamy Rotel, chicken, and cheese. Cook under broil checking for doneness every two minutes. Once your cheese is melted take out your nachos and add all of your cold toppings.
