This cook once eat twice meal plan features easy Instant Pot meals that do double duty! You can cook these recipes fresh for dinner one night, and then freeze the leftovers to use for future meals on another day!
Hi everyone, Jenn here! Things feel a little crazy right now, right?
With many of us spending a lot more time at home these days, and with sometimes limited options in the stores, it can be a challenge to come up with easy meals that can stretch.
This meal plan, featuring all double duty meals, has got you covered!
For each recipe, you’ll make an easy, fresh, from-scratch meal for dinner, and then you can freeze the leftovers for a future meal. That’s two meals for the effort of cooking just once.
✅ Plus, to make your life easier right now, I’ve included a grocery shopping list for this meal plan at the end of the post.
This recipe for Easy Instant Pot Chicken Taco Filling made in your pressure cooker is so versatile! It is great for tacos, but it also works fabulously for taco salads, enchiladas, burritos, and more!
It’s as easy as chopping an onion, tossing in a can of tomatoes and spices, and adding in some chicken breasts. Best of all, you can even use frozen chicken!
It makes a big batch, so take the leftovers and package them in a ziptop freezer bag to go into the freezer. Make sure to label your bag and include the date so you’ll know what you’re pulling out later.
This hearty Instant Pot Meatball Soup recipe made in a pressure cooker comes from Candi over at Make-Ahead Meal Mom.
You can actually use this as a freezer meal to prepare in advance, or make up a batch and freeze the leftovers as a double-duty meal!
Use pre-frozen meatballs to put this dinner together in mere minutes. Leftovers freeze great, and if you freeze individual portions of 1 ½ to 2 cups in ziptop freezer bags or freezer-safe containers, you can use them for easy weekday lunches.
While I doubt there will actually be any leftovers, you can freeze this pie if you need to. Or make it ahead and freeze to pull out another time or maybe when company comes.
But let’s be honest, with the bright fresh flavors of the key lime (or just regular lime if you can’t find key limes in your area right now), I doubt that any of this pie will ever see the inside of your freezer because it will be gone before you can blink! It really is THAT good!
