We serve it topped with avocado and a squeeze of lime, it's the perfect balance of flavors and textures. Several pressure cooker / instant pot recipes I love are chickpeas sweet potatoes, casserole with pepper and olives and stuffed cabbage bowls.

This recipe is ever so easily adapted from Martha Stewart's new cookbook, One Pot. When I always say it a little, I did everything that reduced the amount of oil used. We all loved how it turned out, excellent cheers for a chilly evening.

This can be made in a standard pressure cooker or an Instant Pot (this is the one I have, affil link). I love my pressure cooker even more than I like my slow cooker. Why? Because it cuts cooking time in half, especially when cooking stews that use tough cuts of meat and the pressure cooker makes them very tender, quick. In addition, nothing is better than the flavors you get by cooking in the pressure cooker.

Could you cook this in a pot or Dutch oven? Sure, you will need to add a little more liquid and let it simmer, covered at least 2 hours, before adding Hominy.
