Make a delicious dinner with Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas!
The days are filled with work and school lately, and then after school is homework and activities. So, when do we eat? I’m not sure anymore!
I will admit, we scaled back a bit. I just couldn’t do it. What does that mean? Less activities! These Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas will make dinner simple.
Our son is about to start basketball season and was also thinking about doing karate, but we had to pull back on something so it ended up being karate.
On the one hand, as a mom I feel bad, I want him to do everything he wants to do, but as far as family and home life go, we can’t do it all.
It is healthy for our family to be home a little bit during the week and not rushing from one thing to another, plus it isn’t good on the kids either.
I figured if I was feeling stressed and overwhelmed, surely they must be feeling that in some ways too.
How to Make Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas
He was a little sad at first but he did understand it, I think because he was feeling it too.
The constant running situation, the constant mom being so stressed that she can’t even hold a normal conversation anymore…he felt it. I felt it. We all felt it.
Something had to give… so there it is.
Now, we have a few evenings a week at home again and goodness it’s so refreshing to just be able to do things together like go on evening walks.
In the midst of that, I’ve also started to use my instant pot and slow cooker on those busier nights regularly so that I’m not adding any more stress to myself.
These Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas made just the quick meal we needed before going on with the rest of our evening.
Are you ready for a bite? They are so simple and I was able to prep them and leave them while they cooked themselves!
