How long does this Instant Pot Mac and Cheese last?

Since this meal is full of dairy, it doesn’t have a long shelf life. Plus, the longer in the fridge the less the quality becomes. We suggest finishing this meal off within 2 or 3 days of making it. But, Instant Pot Mac and Cheese will last in the freezer for about 2 months. It’s nice to have on hand for meal prep! Simply divide the Mac and Cheese into freezer bags (#1979), Deli Containers16 oz (#6476) or 32 oz (#6477), or an airtight container to save for a later date.
