Churro Almonds

Instant Pot is a one pot wonder that is so much more than just an electric pressure cooker. One of its awesome features is that you can saute straight in the Instant Pot.

This Saute function is great especially for users living in dorm rooms, RV, boats, on the road, traveling, or camping. Or those who simply don’t want to dirty many pots and pans.

And this recipe highlights this Saute function beautifully. But you can also easily make this on the stovetop if you wish. 🙂
