April Instant Pot Meal Plan (2019)

Delicious Instant Pot Meals For The Month of April

In this April 2019 Edition of my Instant Pot Meal Plan, you’ll find so many delicious dishes. The Spicy Cajun Pasta quickly became a family favorite in my home. You’ll find plenty of other easy pasta dishes as well, like my Beef and Bowtie Pasta and my Beef and Macaroni Pasta. Both are so quick to make, super hearty, and kid approved.

Make sure to check out all the wonderful recipes from other bloggers as well. The Thai Red Curry Salmon and Dijon Shrimp Linguine look especially delicious.

I’ve made sure to include meatless options for Fridays as we come into the final stretch of Lent. Make sure to celebrate Easter by feasting on my Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork.

For the desserts, I’ve included some of my readers’ favorites. You’ll find my Arroz con Leche and Flan recipes in there. If you haven’t tried them yet, then you must! They are some of the most popular recipes on my blog. They are so good!

Below the list of recipes, you will find links to all my monthly Instant Pot meal plans.
