Instant Pot Chili Con Queso
Over the holidays, we ALWAYS make my mama’s Chili Con Queso dip. It is just so delicious and our whole family just adores it! Since I got my new instant pot last month and have been making ALL THE THINGS in it, I decided to try and see if I could make her queso in there.
Life Changing, y’all. You know one of my favorite parts of the instant pot is being able to brown the meat in the instant pot before pressure cooking so it makes so many less dishes as well as saving time! I had the entire pot of queso, including the chopping and browning, and cooking from start to finish, ready in under 20 minutes.
Y’all are going to LOVE making this queso in the instant pot.
- 1.5 lbs ground chuck
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 to 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (10oz) can rotel, undrained
- 1 (15oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
- 1 packet Ortega taco seasoning
- 1 TBSP chili powder
- 1.5 cups water
- 2 lb Velveeta cheese, cut into chunks
Turn instant pot to saute on high. Once it is hot, Add ground beef and onions to the pot and brown. Spoon off the excess grease. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add undrained rotel, undrained tomatoes, taco seasoning, chili powder, velveeta chunks and water. Close instant pot lid and make sure the vent is sealed. Set it on manual for 5 minutes. Let release naturally for 5 minutes then stir to make sure all velveeta is melted and combined. ENJOY!
