Make sure you have a good pressure cooker to make this chicken fajita pasta.

I am using an 8 quart Instant pot but you can use a 6 quart. I personally have an Instant Pot and so far I am loving it.

You can find the Instant pot on sale here.  It’s really changed dinner time around here.

If you have been putting off trying an instant pot, I highly recommend going ahead and biting the bullet. I love using the pressure cooker when I don’t have much time.

It is perfect for frozen food or meals that normally take a while. You can toss everything in and have dinner ready in no time at all.

Those days when you forget to take something out of the freezer or wait until the last minute for dinner, the instant pot is your saving grace.

I am not exaggerating when I say it truly has changed meal time around here. We love ours and it makes soup recipes even easier.

You can also these Instant Pot Accessories to make pressure cooking a breeze. We just love to pressure cook and  I am certain you will too.

Time Saving Tip:

This recipe calls for onion and bell peppers. Another time saving tip is to use a small food chopper or food processor to quickly and easily chop the bell peppers.

If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them. They are such a time saver and you can get the veggies really fine if you have children that are picky.

I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need. It’s so nice to be able to just take the diced onion out of the freezer for recipes.

This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.

Learn and  how to freeze onions and also how to freeze peppers to save so much time in the kitchen!

Pressure cooker chicken fajita pasta is budget friendly!

Stretch your meat budget with this frugal meal idea. You need less chicken because the pasta helps to stretch the meat.

This is a great way to reduce your grocery budget and still give your family amazing meals. The flavors combine for a great meal and we love to make this for our family.

This is one of those meals that everyone loves and you simply can’t go wrong! It is that yummy.

We used penne pasta but you can use whatever you prefer or have on hand in the pantry. Anything will taste amazing.

You can use elbow, bow tie or anything you have. It is so delicious!

Another idea that is great to try is chicken thighs. You can substitute this for the chicken breasts or even combine both.

Sometimes, I just use what is on sale or already in the freezer. This helps us save money and we still get great meals.

This recipe is definitely a win all around! 🙂

    The first recipe i’ve made in my Instapot! Quick, easy and kid friendly! One of my children has a dairy allergy so, before adding the cheese, I mixed the pasta in and took a couple servings out for him. I added a little garlic, garlic salt & non-dairy butter to his (he doesn’t like non-dairy cheese). It was a recipe I could easily alter to make a yummy regular and dairy free option without making two totally separate meals. Really enjoyed this recipe!

    Easy and delicious! I’ve done it in the Instapot, crockpot, and even on the stovetop. A regular recipe in my kitchen.

    This sounds so good! I’m going to make it real soon. I love using my instant pot.
