Launched by OpenAI in November 2022, ChatGPT is a chatbot into which you can write text prompts and uses AI to generate food recipes. ChatGPT is a general bot, but it can be used to create fast cooking instructions and unique results.
To test it out, I entered this text prompt: “write a recipe based on these main ingredients: Potatoes, Ground Beef, Cumin, Chili Seasoning, Onion, Garlic, Egg, Beans, Pickles, Cabbage, and Tomatoes.” ChatGPT generated the following recipe:

- In the same skillet, add the ground beef and cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes. Drain any excess fat.
- Add the cumin and chili seasoning to the skillet and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant.
- Add the onion, garlic, egg, and beans to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes.
