Below are some of our favorite under-$10 recipes that put the Instant Pot to use: from budget one-pot pastas, to family-style chilis and soups, to meal prep grain bowls.
• A pricing note: Costs were calculated via Instacart, so local prices may vary. (We also assumed you had some pantry staples — like salt, olive oil, butter, and spices — already on hand!)
