Easy One Pot Enchilada Pasta

Easy One Pot Enchilada Pasta (Instant Pot)

If you are looking for a one-dish meal for the kids (or, even for you!) this is an amazing dinner.

Our kids love this – and paired with a nice crusty bread with butter it’s great for an easy dinner!

 We make our own enchilada sauce here at home and freeze it in ball canning jars – but if you don’t want to make your own, you can purchase a can of enchilada sauce in store… the recipe calls for 12 oz (so just under a can.).

Don’t want to have any leftover sauce in the can? Just dump the whole can in – it won’t do the pasta any harm.

Ingredients
  1. 8 oz pasta (we used gluten-free)
  2. 1/2 lb ground beef or ground turkey
  3. 1 C. shredded cheese
  4. 12 oz enchilada sauce
  5. 2 C. broth (can be beef, chicken or veggie)
  6. 2 Tbsp seasoning (taco or any)
  7. salt & pepper (to taste)
  8. Optional: 1/2 C. sour cream
  9. Optional: black olives
Instructions
  1. Brown the meat with the seasoning in your instant pot using the saute function.
  2. Add the broth, pasta and enchilada sauce to the pot. You want the liquid to just barely coer the pasta - if it doesn't, add a little more broth.
  3. Place the lid on the pressure cooker, close the valve and set the pasta on high pressure for 4 minutes.
  4. After it beeps, let it release naturally for 3-4 minutes, then quick release the instant pot.
  5. Stir in the cheese and salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Optional: Top with fresh Mexican queso, or black olives. You can also stir in 1/2 C. sour cream if you want to make it a little more creamy.
Notes
  1. Take it a step further and add black beans OR corn to your pasta... and add them in to the pot when you add the pasta.
