Instant Pot Taco Spaghetti

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

We’ve seen a lot of recipe fads with the IP. But none quite compares to Taco Spaghetti! Wow! So many people love this dish–and no wonder: cheesy, saucy, yummy.
But we’ve got problems. We want more! More vegetables, more spicy yumminess. So here’s the version from our cookbook INSTANT POT BIBLE: THE NEXT GENERATION. It’s loaded! A meal!
Join Mark Scarbrough as he shows you this deep dig into ultimate comfort food right out of the IP. We can’t love this dish more. Here are the ingredients with some additional information for 5-, 6-, or 8-quart Instant Pots:
Saute function at medium
2 tablespoons/30 ml vegetable, canola, or other neutral-flavored oil
1 medium yellow or white onion, chopped (1 cup)
1 medium green bell pepper, stemmed, cored, and chopped (1 cup)
3 medium garlic cloves, minced (1 tablespoon)
1 pound/450 grams lean ground beef, preferably 90% lean or more
1 1/2 tablespoons standard chili powder
1 1/2 tablespoons mild paprika
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon table salt
Two 10-ounce/280-grams Rotel hot or mild chopped tomatoes with chiles
2 cups/500ml chicken (or vegetable or beef) broth
1 cup/160 grams corn kernels (fresh, canned/drained, or frozen)
12 ounces/340 grams raw spaghetti, broken in half to fit (you can use gluten-free but the best sort for this recipe is one made with a mix of “flours,” including corn flour, rather than one made exclusively with rice flour)
6 minutes at HIGH, followed by a fast release.
8 ounces/225 grams shredded cheese, preferably a blend of Monterey Jack and American cheddar (don’t use a Tex-Mex blend with seasonings added)

Stir it up and it’s ready! (Well, Mark added some garnishes. Try pickle relish on it sometime. Delish!)
