5 Instant Pot® Dishes to Serve up on Game Day

It’s game time…

Yelling at your team through the TV screen REALLY builds up an appetite. Game Day is not the time to slack on the snacks. That doesn’t mean you have to put your blood, sweat, and tears into a party dip – save those for the game.

 

We're keeping it convenient with these droppable, delectable, Instant Pot dishes, paired with all your 7-Eleven favorites. First, a little vocabulary lesson for you first-year rookies. You’ll need to know the difference between “quick release” and “natural release.” 

 

Instant Pot” A popular brand of 6-in-1 pressure cooker, able to use the heat and pressure of steam to cook food in a quicker fashion than the classic slow cooker.
Quick release” means releasing your venting knob, and letting it release for about 2 minutes.
Natural release” means you’ll allow the pressure to release naturally, without the use of the venting knob. This typically takes 15 minutes.
