Instant Pot Mushroom Risotto

The BEST Instant Pot Risotto recipe is so easy to make! Mushrooms, garlic, French onion dip mix & parmesan cheese add a ton of flavor to this tasty dish!

Risotto is one of my favorite Italian dishes. It’s rich, creamy and so delicious!

I can’t wait to make this Butternut Squash Risotto every fall! And I love serving this Cilantro Lime Pesto Risotto with Mexican food.

The one thing about risotto that I don’t like is the hands-on time it takes to make risotto. It’s not hard to make. You just have to hang out by the stove for 30-45 minutes ladling broth into the risotto. That’s what makes risotto so creamy!

I thought there was no way that Instant Pot Risotto was going to create the same creamy texture as traditional risotto. But it does!

I took me a few attempts to get the perfect rice to broth ratio down. But in the end, I created the most creamy, dreamy Instant Pot Risotto!

No more standing around the stove to get the perfect creamy risotto. Just spend 10 minutes sautéing ingredients in the Instant Pot, then pop the lid on. Pour yourself a glass of wine and relax while the Instant Pot does the work for you!

In our house, French Onion Dip and chips are always a requirement on the menu for NFL Sundays!  So like any good food blogger, I made my own French Onion Dip Mix and started making homemade dip every Sunday.

Since I now had this delicious French Onion Dip Mix sitting in the pantry, I decided to try it out on other recipes, instead of just dip!

I first tried it out on pot roast and the result was AMAZING! Seriously, French Onion Pot Roast is the best pot roast ever! It was so good, I made it both in a pressure cooker and in a slow cooker.

Next up, I made these French Onion Dip Tacos. The perfect game day food that combines easy ground beef tacos with a seriously delicious dip!

We ate them on game day in crispy shells, then I made them again for dinner during the week and served them on flour tortillas. Both totally tasty options for this seriously easy taco recipe!

During football season, we go through A LOT of French Onion Dip around our house! It’s Kurt’s favorite and he demands it every Sunday while watching games.

I make my own French Onion Dip Mix, which is perfect for mixing with sour cream to make the dip on Sunday’s, but it’s also great for adding to lots of delicious recipes throughout the week, like this French Onion Chicken Pasta!

Of course Kurt was more than willing to taste test this recipe three times before I perfected it for the blog! 😉

I love making my own homemade seasonings! It’s cheaper than buying packaged seasonings at the store, you know exactly what’s going in it and you can make a big batch of it and have it on hand to add to recipes throughout the week!

One or two times I year, I head to Costco or hop on Amazon and purchase several large containers of spices to create my favorite seasoning mixes. These 7 spices are always on my list:

I use these to then mix up my Taco Seasoning, Fajita Seasoning and this French Onion Dip Mix.

I keep them in mason jars in the pantry so they’re ready to use in recipes anytime!
