Instant Pot Lasagna

One of our favorite meals is lasagna, we are Italian so of course, it is a staple meal in our house! I’ve been making it in the Instant Pot and I am finally sharing my recipe with you!

Grab your favorite pressure cooker or Instant Pot and let’s get started! If you’ve never used an Instant Pot, check out my Instant Pot 101 post!

These stackable pans make this lasagna a breeze to make, but any 7 inch round pan will work!

Start by browning the Italian Sausage with the onion and two cloves of garlic.

Drain the grease and then add the pasta sauce to the meat and allow it to simmer for 5-10 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix the ricotta cheese, parmesan cheese, two cloves of garlic, pesto sauce, egg and seasonings.

Break the lasagna noodles in half, add pasta sauce to the bottom of the pan then start layering the lasagna.

Begin with a layer of noodles, then meat sauce, then another layer of noodles, then the ricotta mixture and finally a layer of mozzarella. Repeat at least twice and finish with a layer of meat sauce and mozzarella cheese.

Cover the pans, add 1 cup of water to the inner pot of the Instant pot, and place the pans on a trivet or directly into the pot.

Put the lid on, turn the venting knob to “sealing” and cook on HIGH pressure for 25 minutes. When the timer goes off, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure.

Carefully remove the lid and pans from the Instant Pot. Place under the broiler for 3-4 minutes.

Note: You can freeze the lasagna in the pan for future use. The cooking time will be the same. 🙂

Enjoy!

Instant Pot Chicken Enchiladas

It has been WAY to long since I have posted an Instant Pot recipe and after a recipe request, here we are!

If you are new to the Instant Pot, feel free to check out my very informative post about them. 🙂 https://fromarvadawithlove.com/2017/07/25/instant-pot-101-tips-tricks-and-must-have-accessories/

We had these Chicken Enchiladas last night and they were delicious. They may not look pretty but the flavor is out of this world. Both of the boys absolutely loved them.

Season the chicken with taco seasoning, then add 1 Can of enchilada sauce to the instant pot along with the diced onion, garlic and chicken breasts. Reserve the second can of enchilada sauce for a later step.

Put the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the venting knob to sealing. Push the “manual” or “pressure cook” button and adjust the time to 15 minutes. When the timer goes off allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure by carefully turning the venting knob to venting. 

Shred the chicken and get ready to assemble the enchiladas. Spray the bottom of a pan with cooking spray.

This is the pan I love off of Amazon, it’s great because you can use it by itself or stacked to cook more than one batch of enchiladas or whatever you’re making. 🙂

Tear two corn tortillas in half and layer the bottom of the pan. Add a spoonful of enchilada sauce to the tortillas. 

Add a layer of chicken, then a layer of shredded cheese. Continuing these steps, add two more layer and finish with a layer of tortillas, enchilada sauce and cheese.

Add 1 cup of water to a clean instant pot inner pot. Cover the pan with aluminum foil, place the pan on a trivet and place into the instant pot. 

Put the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the venting knob to sealing. Push the “manual” or “pressure cook” button and adjust the time to 15 minutes. When the timer goes off quickly release the pressure by carefully turning the venting knob to venting. 

Allow the enchiladas to cool for 10 minutes before serving. 

**Note: you can use precooked chicken instead of raw. Just warm the chicken in a pan with taco seasoning and enchilada sauce then continue with the rest of the steps. 

So delicious!!! Enjoy! 🙂

Easy Instant Pot Egg Muffins

OMG!!

Egg “muffins” are a staple in our house, my sons absolutely love them! And I’m so glad that I found a way to make them in the Instant Pot.

If you’re new to the Instant Pot, start here:

Instant Pot 101

Grab the Ingredients and let’s get started!

For this recipe you can use either 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt or 1/2 cup of cottage cheese. Either will work!

Feel free to add what you like, 1/2  cup of vegetables of your choice and 1/4 cup of bacon or sausage if you’d like. We love to switch it up and add new things to our egg muffins so have fun with it!!

Start by adding all of the ingredients to a bowl or blender. Mix well.

For the next step, you’ll need some silicone Muffins tins. These are the ones I use!

Spray the muffin tins with non stick cooking spray.

Fill the liners about 3/4 of the way full. I was able to make 10 Muffins with this recipe.

Place 1 cup of water in the bottom of the Instant Pot, then place the muffin tins on a trivet and lower the trivet into the Instant Pot. This is where having two Instant Pots comes in handy!! 🙂

Place the lid on the Instant Pot and press the “Steam” button. Adjust the time to 8 minutes.

When the timer is up, allow the pressure to release naturally, this will take about 15 minutes.

Use a butter knife to loosen the Muffins if needed, and enjoy!

Yum!!

Green Chile Chicken Soup

This soup recipe could not be more simple! It can be prepared in the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker. Don’t you just love a recipe that you can “dump and cook,” as in, dump all of your ingredients, set it and forget it! That’s one of the many reasons I love cooking in my Instant Pot!

If you’re new to the Instant Pot, start here:

Which Instant Pot is Best?

Instant Pot 101

Grab the ingredients you’ll need and get ready for a super simple and delicious dinner!

For the seasonings you’ll need:

-2 tsp Cumin

-2 tsp Oregano

-1 tsp Chili Powder

-1/2 tsp Salt

-1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Chop the onion and garlic.

Drain and rinse your beans. If you haven’t heard of hominy, you can find it in the canned vegetable aisle at your local grocery store! You can substitute any other kind of bean if you’d like as well! This is what Hominy looks like:

Add all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot except for the cilantro and lime juice. Stir.

Close the lid, turn the venting knob to “sealing” and cook on HIGH pressure for 20 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally, this can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes. You will know that the pressure has released completely when the silver pin has dropped. Carefully open the lid.

Remove the chicken and shred, then return it to the pot. Add the cilantro and juice of 1/2 of a lime and stir. Top with avocado and tortilla strips and enjoy!
