Even though the weather is warming up, I still have cravings for a good chili recipe.  I actually love chilis – check out my easy beef chili recipe or another Instant Pot steak chili recipe.  And I love how easy they are to make. 

What I love most is that you can do all of the meal prep during the weekends to make weeknight dinner making that much easier.  Because we all need the ease of making dinner.  (Shoutout to all the working moms out there).

Speaking of working moms, can we talk about weekend meal prep and planning?  I try to plan out our meals for the week on the weekends and do the grocery shopping. 

Then on Sundays, I can chop all the veggies that I need for the meals that week.

There is something wonderful about coming home from a long day at work and already having the most challenging part of the meal prep done. 

I keep each recipes veggies in their own baggies to make it even easier.  Boom! Are you still on the fence in buying an Instant Pot? This guide can help you find out if the Instant Pot is a good investment or not.
