What About the Weekend Instant Pot Meals?
It’s chilly and we’re probably going to spend a lot of the day indoors this weekend. So I added in fun to make recipes that your family can help you with.
The tamales will go fast after you make the first few. I suggest making a double recipe. Put half in the freezer for another night that you don’t feel like cooking.
