I’m always a little wary of trends, of gadgets or diets that pop up on social media. I was a paleo diet hater back when it first came to public awareness, and last year I rolled my eyes at the absolute must-have gadget that seemed to take over my Facebook mom groups: the Instant Pot.
So, of course, after my fashionably late arrival to the Instant Pot rave, I knew I had to convert one of my very favorite slow cooker recipes: my embarrassingly photographed but intensely tender and delicious Crockpot chicken tacos recipe. I wanted to be able to throw a midweek fiesta without having to remember to load the Crockpot at noon, wanted to load up on flavor and dial down the time and effort to make a delish and healthy dinner.

  • 4 medium sweet potatoes , scrubbed
  • 1 1/2 cups water

CHICKEN

  • 1 can RO*TEL , undrained, any variety
  • 1 tablespoon taco seasoning

AVOCADO-JALAPEÑO SAUCE
  • 1 avocado , peeled and seeded
  • 1 jalapeño , stemmed
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar

GARNISHES
  • jalapeños , sliced thin
  • fresh cilantro
  • RO*TEL , drained

Instructions
  1. See Notes for sweet potato and chicken cooking instructions if you do not have an Instant Pot. You can also bake your sweet potatoes in the oven while you cook the chicken in the Instant Pot to save time, if you like.
  2. Cook your sweet potatoes: Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork. Place steaming trivet in bottom of Instant Pot pot then pour 1 1/2 cups water in pot. Place sweet potatoes on trivet then secure lid and cook on Manual, high pressure for 16 minutes. Quick release pressure and remove sweet potatoes from trivet. Set aside. Discard steaming water and rinse cooking pot, making sure outside is very dry.
  3. Make your shredded chicken: combine chicken breasts, taco seasoning, and RO*TEL (undrained) in the pot of an Instant Pot. Do not add water. Secure lid and cook on Manual, high pressure for 20 minutes. Quick release pressure and remove chicken breasts from pot. Shred with two forks then return to pot. Stir on Sauté mode a few minutes until sauce is absorbed. 
  4. Meanwhile, make your sauce: combine all avocado-jalapeño sauce ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. 
  5. To make guacamole, mash avocados and stir in avocado-jalapeño sauce.
  6. To serve: with a knife, make a slit down the top of each sweet potato and press sweet potatoes ends toward center to push open. Top with shredded chicken, guacamole, avocado-jalapeño sauce, more RO*TEL, and garnishes. Serve immediately.

Recipe Notes
If you don't have an Instant Pot, follow these instructions to bake your sweet potatoes: Preheat oven to 400º F. Prick sweet potatoes all over with a fork then place directly on oven rack in middle position. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until easily pierced with a fork. Remove sweet potatoes from oven and set aside.

To make chicken in a slow cooker instead of an Instant Pot: In the pot of a slow-cooker, combine all ingredients. Do not add water. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours, or cook on high for 4 to 6 hours. After about 3/4 of the time, shred the chicken breasts with two forks and leave in the slow-cooker for the rest of the time.

You know about the auto insurance companies that boast about their low premiums on national television, radio and social media. They really want you to internalize their messages. The truth of the matter, though, is that there may be a misconception about what they mean. "Replace your current coverage with ours," they proclaim, "and you'll find savings on your auto insurance!" Or "Allow us ten minutes and we will present you with a cheaper rate than others." The real facts indicate that most vehicle drivers will not get any savings with a policy switch to a direct insurance company. This is because no dependent company has the wherewithal to offer any other coverage than their own. The shimmer of a cheap quote can actually be the mask covering an increased insurance deductible and less liability coverage. In order to underscore this important lesson, we bring you this actual narrative involving someone who decided to go with an independent agency's ability to locate tailored car insurance for him. A motorist who had previously been insured through one of these highly advertised dependent companies that promote 'cheaper rates' decided to go with an independent agency known for their impeccable customer service. Following a review of this man's 'cheap' auto policy, the insurance specialist discovered some serious gaps in coverage. Understanding this could cause serious problems if the insured should ever be involved in a car accident, she went to work, looking through the many policies offered through her company's network of providers. She pinpointed an excellent plan that covered the gaps and had an attached competitive low rate. The customer was satisfied with the find and left with a fresh peace of mind due to his newly acquired policy. As fate would have it, it was not long afterwards that this insured was involved in a car crash that left his vehicle in a totaled condition. Because the other driver was at fault in this collision, it was assumed that the other driver's insurance company would pay for the damages. But there was one major snag to this. The other insurance company offered to pay an amount that was far below the totaled car's worth. It was then that the new policyholder whose car had been totaled decided to call his new company. The insurance company gave him no hassle, no problems. Instead, they mailed him a check made out to the amount that genuinely represented the worth of his car, three thousand dollars above what the at fault driver's insurance company offered! Guaranteed: the happy ending to this true-to-life story would have been very different if that 'cheap premium' policy with gaps in coverage would have been in place.

Do you have the right car insurance? Well, many people think that it is a must to have the right car insurance. It will be better if you get the best one with cheap auto insurance. While most people know whether they have liability, collision or comprehensive coverage, some people pay much attention to their insurance coverage until after they have been in an accident, the others just do not really care about it. Shopping for car insurance is an important planning topic that is often overlooked since most teenagers are added to mom and dad's insurance policy when they first get behind the wheel and then later shop for the least expensive policy when they have to the pay the bill on their own. In this article, we will be discussing car insurance coverage and so you will get some tips to help you get the most for your money. Cheap auto insurance has two primary benefits. The first one is protecting your assets and the second one is protecting your health. Getting the proper coverage is the first step in the process. These are the basic types of coverage with which most people are familiar: 1. Liability: This coverage pays for third-party personal injury and death-related claims, as well as any damage to another person's property that occurs as a result of your automobile accident. 2. Collision: This coverage pays to repair your car after an accident. It is required if you have a loan against your vehicle because the car isn't really yours - it belongs to the bank, which wants to avoid getting stuck with a wrecked car. 3. Comprehensive: This coverage pays for damage incurred as a result of theft, vandalism, fire, water, etc. If you paid cash for your car or paid off your car loan, you may not need collision or comprehensive coverage. In addition to the coverage listed above, other optional coverage types include the following: a. Full Tort/Limited Tort: Your insurance will be reduced by a few dollars if you give up the right to sue when you get an accident. However, giving up your rights is rarely a smart financial move. b. Medical Payments/Personal Injury Protection: Personal injury protection pays the cost of medical bills for the policyholder and passengers. If you have good health insurance coverage, this may not be necessary. c. Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: This type provides for medical and property damage coverage if you are involved in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist. d. Towing: Towing coverage pays for a tow if your vehicle cannot be driven after an accident. If you are a member of an automobile service, or if your vehicle comes with roadside assistance provided by the manufacturer, this coverage is unnecessary. e. Glass Breakage: Some companies do not cover broken glass under their collision or comprehensive policies. In general, this coverage is not worth the long-term cost. f. Rental: This insurance option covers the cost of a rental car, but rental cars are so inexpensive that it may not be worth paying for this coverage.
