Food is a love language in my family. Time spent in the kitchen together preparing meals and then around the table enjoying those meals are some of my favorite ways to show my love and create memories.
Whenever we’re headed to a get together, someone always asks for me to bring a special recipe. I think it’s a hazard of my job. I’ve found that this lil smokies recipe is one that everyone loves. And as a busy mom, I love how easy it is to make!
You only need four ingredients, 20 minutes and an Instant Pot to make the magic happen.
It’s a great option if you have last minute guests or are busy trying to make a dish from scratch. (I also love these deviled eggs for this reason.)
