For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb đź‘Ť

We had some cooked chicken leftover from the day before so we added that a couple of hours before the end of cooking.

If you prefer you can use diced chicken breast instead of beef!

The Instant Pot

If you’ve never heard of the Instant Pot you should go and check it out over on Amazon. Imagine the best Slow Cooker in the world and times that by a hundred. There’s not much that it can’t do!

It’s also a pressure cooker, which means you can cook recipes like this in about 30 minutes. The word pressure cooker used to send me into hiding, I remember my Nans one when I was a child. It would splutter and rock, and make all sorts of horrid noises! None of that with the Instant Pot – just send the time, close the lid and go. It even keeps your food warm once it’s finished cooking?!
