January Instant Pot Meal Plan (2020)

Delicious Instant Pot Meals For The Month of January

In this January 2020 Edition of my Instant Pot Meal Plan, you’ll find lots of great meals, side dishes, and desserts for the new year. I also made sure to include a wonderfully delicious recipe for black-eyed peas to bring you lots of good luck for 2020.

Some other great recipes that you’ll find in this list are my very popular Chicken Tetrazzini, Dr. Pepper Pulled Pork, Chicken and Dumplings, and French Dip.

If you’re in the mood for some delicious pasta dishes, I have you covered with my Spaghetti and Meat Sauce, Creamy Sausage Rigatoni, Taco Pasta, Beef & Macaroni Casserole, and Chicken Alfredo.

Or maybe soup is what you’re craving. No worries, I’ve got you covered there too. I’ve included my White Chicken Chili, Pumpkin Soup, Chicken Enchilada Soup, Butternut Squash Soup, and Tomato Soup. And why not pair that soup with a delicious sandwich like my much loved French Dip Sandwiches.

Well, I wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year and hope that you enjoy this month’s meal plan.
