  • THE Instant Pot Mac-n-Cheese

    I love mac-n-cheese anytime, anyway, anywhere.  I have made my fair share over the years but I have to say this is definately one of my favorites yet. Cheesy Goodness In my opinion any good mac n cheese has a couple of cheese varieties in it.  Some favorites are gouda and cheddar, goat and mascarpone and classic cheddar blend.  For this mac-n-chesse I combined my dads version (stovetop velveeta) with mine to create a delicious mac-n-cheese. To make it extra creamy I used a little velveeta, some white cheddar (you could use yellow) and then a mexican blend.  The combo of all the cheeses create a super creamy, cheesy blend…
