Ingredients

  • 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

Directions

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.
