I’ve decided to start sharing a hack of the week! That’s fun, right?
This week, I thought I would highlight a product that we love in my house – our immersion blender aka stick blender. If you don’t have one, or haven’t heard of one, they are amazing!
Essentially, they are a handheld blender – the power of a blender without the hassle. Most have a safety button at the top so you don’t accidentally turn it on, and the whole bottom part comes off of the motor for easy clean-up! Both my husband and I use ours all the time.
Hacks for Your Immersion Blender
So now that I’ve recommended an immersion blender and explained a little about them, you might be wondering how to use them.
Here’s a list of examples:
• Mix dips. I use mine to make Jalapeño Ranch. I just dump all the ingredients in a bowl and blend! It comes out perfectly smooth every time!
• Blend Re-fried beans. I use a crockpot recipe to make refried beans. I throw a few cans of pinto beans, water, some onion, garlic, and seasonings in a crockpot and cook for a few hours. When it’s ready, I just drain some of the water and blend. Perfect refried beans!
• Blend tomato sauce. Both my mom and I use our crockpot to cook tomato sauce. With the immersion blender, there’s no chopping or peeling, just blending. It’s amazing!
There are so many ways to use the immersion blender. It’s truly an amazing tool that I love, and perfect for homemaking hacks!
