Over time I find myself relying on my Cuisinart Pressure Cooker (affiliate). We’ve used it for our refried beans, to cook chicken for shredding, and recently used the pressure cooker to cook white rice when our rice cooker died. I doubt we’ll go back to a rice cooker again! Ok, so I didn’t start out to tell you how wonderful the pressure cooker is, I wanted to share this wonderful recipe that we modified to meet our personal taste. We’ve made these so many times and they just come together so easily using the pressure cooker.
Now, for those of you that don’t own a pressure cooker, Misty over at Denverista used the same recipe but boiled her potatoes the good ol’ fashion way. In fact, this recipe has been in my drafts for a while because I never have leftovers for photos. Thankfully, Misty shared photos of her dish before her crew piled into them.
