This is the ultimate comfort food dish to serve if you plan on having some picky guests over. This dish is an all-around crowd pleaser. It’s a great quick dinner to have on hand and gives the good old chili recipe a little bit of a twist! This recipes utilizes the “Sauté” and “Pressure Cook” functions of the Instant Pot, although you can make in any other multi-cooker.
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 yellow onion, finely diced
- 1 jalapeño, deseeded and finely minced
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 green bell pepper, diced
- 1 Pound lean ground beef
- 1 can (15 ounces) diced tomato
- 1/2 Cup water
- 1 Teaspoon salt
- 1/2 Teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 Teaspoon black pepper
- 1/2 Teaspoon chili powder
- 1/4 Cup cilantro, chopped
- 12 small flour tortillas
- 1 Cup shredded cheese
- 1/2 Cup sour cream
In your Instant Pot on “Sauté” mode, melt the butter and sauté the onion and pepper until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and jalapeño and continue to sauté for another 2 minutes.
Add the ground beef and brown for about 5 more minutes. Add the water, can of tomato, and spices. Cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes.
Place the beef mixture into another large bowl so your Instant Pot is empty. There is no need to clean it.
Pour 1/3 of the mixture back into the Instant Pot. Cover that layer with 3 or 4 tortillas. They can overlap.
Cover the tortillas with another layer of the beef mixture. Repeat this layering process twice and top with a final layer of the beef.
Then switch to “Pressure Cook” mode. Make sure the steam release handle is in the “Sealing” position. Set for 5 minutes on high pressure.
When the timer beeps, you can perform a quick release by moving the pressure release to “Venting,” or you can let the pressure release naturally.
Top with sour cream and shredded Cheddar.
