A side that goes with every meal

I love potatoes! In just about every way shape and form. I especially love them as a side for dinner. They are versatile and filling especially for my kids little bodies. My new favorite way to cook potatoes is in the instant pot. They cook up so quick, whereas the oven always takes close to an hour AND fills the kitchen with heat. So one day, while trying to decide how on earth to spice up my potatoes in the instant pot I threw in some seaonsings that sounded good together and BAM. Heaven on a potato.

How to make Pressure Cooker seasoned potatoes

  1. Start by washing your potatoes. You can use ANY kind of potato for this, be sure they are all uniformly chopped into large bite size pieces.
  2. Toss potatoes in seasonings. Knorrs tomato bouillon seasoning is really the key to this recipe. You can find it by the mexican spices and grocery isle. It is also on amazon if you are not able to find it in your area. I have it linked for you right here. 
  3. If you dont have tomato bullion you can use chicken or vegetable- double the amount called for for 1 cup of water. So if the bottle calls for 1 cup water 1 TBS bullion use 2 TBS bullion 1 cup water. 
    better than bullion with a mixing up and broth
  4. Optional- in pressure cooker saute potatoes in a little olive oil
  5. add water and a cook on high 5 minutes.
  6. QUICK RELEASE. This is important, unless you want mushy potatoes, make sure you quick release the pressure.

I love to serve these potatoes with chives and sour cream for dipping. We love making this grilled chicken, or these ribs along side the ribs.
