If you love tacos, if your significant other loves tacos, if your kids love tacos…
Have I got a yummy little dish for you!
And one of the best parts…It’s made with pasta!!
And everyone adores pasta!
you can throw all the ingredients into
your instant pot and it’s done in 4 minutes!
After a long day at work…after a long day at school, trying to feed the babies after your long day…
What could be any better than this gift from above?
Absolutely nothing I tell you…
You are so very welcome <3
I always spray my Instant Pot with
especially when cooking a pasta dish…
That way I never have to cry over
washing the inner pot…
Just a little soap and water
and it wipes magically clean!
With your Instant Pot on saute’ cook the hamburger meat and drain…
add 1 pkg taco seasoning and 3/4 cup water…
Stir until combined and turn the saute’ feature off…
Recently my daughter recommended butcherbox.com
a couple of months ago and
it has been a lifesaver!
I get to choose the style of
box that I get every month or every other month…
And right now if you sign up, they are
offering hamburger meat for life!
Their meat is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished,
humanely raised and never given any antibiotics or hormones….
And every time I get a box it’s like a present to myself!
Next, toss the pasta into the pot..
Shells, bowties, elbows…
whatever you have on hand..
there’s no wrong choice here!
I had bowties so I went with that…
Next, pour in 2 cups of beef broth…
and 2 cups of water…
Now add your can of Rotel…
I used the Lime & Cilantro flavor…
but use your favorite Rotel here…
Set on High Pressure 4 minutes…
That will give you just enough time
to get the bowls and silverware ready!
Do a quick release and open the lid…
It will be amazingly yummy looking like this!
Add the 2 cups of shredded cheese of your choice.
I used the Mexican blend.
Give it a stir and it’s all cheesy, hot and full of yumminess!
Just a hug in a bowl waiting to make your day so much better!
I dressed mine up a bit with fresh chopped tomatoes and a bit of sour cream…just heavenly!
