Instant Pot Pork Chili Verde

This recipe is adapted to fit a low carb style. It originally called for sweet potato (2.5 cups), but that aint Keto friendly! I was TRYING to get butternut squash to sub for it, but I didn’t find any, so we’re going to do green bell pepper and yellow squash. If you want to make it with the sweet potato, omit the squash and bell pepper!

We have made this one time before and it was really good, but had a really SWEET kick to it. Hopefully the squash mellows that out…but we will see.

If you have ever watched us cook, you will know that we rarey make any recipes that we’ve tried before…this one doesn’t QUITE fall into that category, but close!

Also, we are new to the Instant Pot life so we might fumble with that too.

It’s all a part of the show folks! Sit back, and enjoy while Michelle is charming and I swear too much.

Love you!
