Find new recipes for ingredients you already have!

Just say "Alexa, find me a recipe with chicken, tomatoes and spinach"

Insert whatever ingredients you're looking to cook with tonight, and Alexa will offer up a bunch of delicious options! For the above ingredients, Alexa proposed one-pot spinach chicken pasta (pictured!), sun-dried tomato and spinach-stuffed chicken and more.

I was pleasantly surprised (and impressed!) by the number of really delicious-sounding chicken, tomato and spinach recipes Alexa pulled up. And after almost two months of home cooking, I'm getting tired of my four go-to dinners -- so I'm pretty excited to have found some yummy and easy new ones!

Pro Tip: You can also search for more specific types recipes. Try "Alexa, find me a pasta with meat sauce recipe" or "find me a salad recipe" (to make a salad that's actually tasty).


Do This Now: Follow these 4 steps to find a recipe for tonight's dinner:

#1. Say "Alexa, find me a recipe with (insert a few ingredients you have on hand)!"

#2. Listen to the recipes Alexa proposes (if you have an Echo Show, you'll be able to see and scroll through them)

#3. To skip to the next recipe, say "Alexa, next"

#4a. If you have an Echo or Dot... When you hear a recipe that sounds good, opt to have Alexa send the recipe to your phone when prompted. You'll receive a push notification with a link to it so you can see the step-by-step instructions

#4b. If you have an Echo Show... When you see an interesting recipe, tap into it or say "Alexa, more information on 1" (where 1 corresponds to the number next to the recipe). If it's a winner, say "Alexa, start recipe" to get cooking with instructions provided by Alexa, including helpful text, images and videos displayed for each step!
