March Instant Pot Meal Plan (2019)

Delicious Instant Pot Meals For The Month of March

In this March 2019 Edition of my Instant Pot Meal Plan you’ll find some delicious Instant Pot meals, side dishes, and desserts. With St. Patrick’s Day coming up on March 17th, I made sure and include a special Irish meal and dessert for you to enjoy that day.

The temperatures are still low so I know you’ll love some of the warm, comforting meals I planned for you. You don’t want to miss making my Chicken and Dumplings or my Butternut Squash Soup. Both are delicious and very easy to make.

I included some delicious desserts this month as well. My Arroz con Leche is a monthly staple at my house! You’ll love the warm and comforting taste. And like I mentioned above, don’t forget to try the special St. Patrick’s Day treat I included.
