We all have foods we love more than anything else. Old family recipes, strange pantry concoctions, happy accidents, recreations of our favorite restaurant meals: no matter what it is, we want to see it!

This challenge is especially for those recipes you’ve made over and over again. Convince us to make your grandmother’s pho or your weird roommate’s beer cheese next time we’re down in the dumps and need a little pick me up!

Share your favorite comfort food recipe for your chance to win an Instant Pot!
