Faster, Easier Homemade Broth In An Instant Pot

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

It took me a long time to jump into the Instant Pot scene. I mean, I already had slow cookers, and I had a high-end stainless steel stove-top pressure cooker too. Why would I spend more money to buy something else I had to store?

Wanna know what the breaking point was for me to decide to jump in?

Well I’d borrowed my sisters IP to see if I’d *really* use it enough to justify the cost. One of the first things I tried was bone broth. I was hooked!

Y’all, making your own healthy broth has really never been this easy!

Instant Pot Broth is crazy-easy to make, y'all. Literally push-button convenience. Come see how I make and preserve it. #TexasHomesteader

Quick & Easy Taco Seasoning Mix

by Texas Homesteader ~ 

Back in ‘the day‘ I always kept several packets of taco seasoning in my pantry for those days I used it when I was making Carnitas Tacos. Or Pulled-Pork Enchiladas. Or maybe Taco Soup. Or… well anything Tex-Mex flavored.

RancherMan & I enjoy lots of Tex-Mex food, y’all. You know, ’cause that’s how we roll in Texas!

But that was before I started on this simple life journey. I’ve since learned that it’s beyond easy to whip up these spice mixes for myself. Come see…

It's super easy to mix up this taco seasoning mix in minutes. Pour it into a repurposed jar, slap a label on it and BOOM! Never buy those tiny disposable foil packets of taco seasoning again! #TexasHomesteader #Taco #Seasoning #TexMex #SaveMoney #EcoFriendly
