Now let’s talk about a few fast and easy September Instant Pot recipes we have on a regular rotation here:
- My husband and I really enjoyed this Instant Pot tilapia. So much so we made it 2 nights in a row so the girls could try it too and it got 10 thumbs up in our house.
- Pressure cooker lasagna casserole is the ONLY way to make lasagna! NO boiling required and way easier to eat.
- Want something fun, make Instant Pot Mexican pizza!
- Cheesy Instant Pot goulash is a family favorite, especially with my kids.
When my girls come home from school they make Kraft mac and cheese in a pressure cooker almost daily. I taught them how much was needed and if they forget they just pull up the post. 😉
It’s a pretty healthy snack for kids and keeps them satiated until dinner.
- Instant Pot chili mac recipe is seriously my go to recipe

- There are a bunch of pressure cooker chicken soup recipes. You don’t have to be sick to make them either.
- Making a twist on our favorite dish, this Instant Pot chicken parmesan casserole is the bomb
- Our creamy pressure cooker chicken and mushroom casserole was a hit this month.
You can make it vegetarian too by just omitting the chicken. It is super hearty using baby bellas and fresh green beans. I actually came up with this one while on a trip in our RV. It was a throw together meal using canned chicken which came out surprisingly yummy!
Chicken is kinda’ a staple in our home. That and ground beef I guess. When I think of a new recipe I gravitate toward them, maybe because they’re inexpensive and that’s what I grew up on.
That and anything thrown together to make a casserole. lol Yes, I grew up in the 80’s when those were all the rage. They’re coming back with a vengeance though!!
