When You’re Fed Up With Dirty Dishes, Try These One-Pot Dinners

“I adore one-pot dinners. While I receive help with the dishwasher, I usually handle the pots and pans. So, fewer dishes at the night’s end are always a delight. One-pot meals are wonderfully efficient. Why use a stockpot and skillet when a single Dutch oven suffices? A one-pot dinner, in essence, is a recipe that requires just one pot (or skillet) for the entire meal. There is no need for separate pots of rice, boiling pasta on the side, or assembling a variety of toppings and tortillas. It’s a complete meal cooked in one pot. Without further ado, here are some fantastic one-pot dinner ideas to simplify those busy nights.”

Slow Cooker Cajun-Spiced Stuffed Peppers

“As a child, stuffed peppers held a special place in my heart. This recipe is particularly delightful because there’s no need to pre-cook the filling. Nestle the stuffed peppers in a slow cooker and let it take care of the rest.”

One-Pot Taco Pasta

“Imagine combining chili spices with hamburger-like ingredients and macaroni – that’s the essence of this delightful one-pot taco pasta. While you can add toppings like sour cream and extra shredded cheese, it’s perfectly wonderful.”

Skillet Chicken And Rice

“My beloved chicken and rice casserole is even quicker when cooked in a skillet. Customize this recipe with cheese, garlic, or a variation of herbs. Don’t forget to rinse the rice before adding it to the skillet to ensure the finished dish isn’t gummy.”

Instant Pot White Chicken Chili

“With the Instant Pot, a weekend meal transforms into a swift and seamless one-pot delight. Chicken thighs, sautéed vegetables, spices, and beans all simmer together. After the pressure cooking cycle, it can be kept warm for up to 10 hours before finalizing the chili.”
