My very first Instant Pot recipe

I originally got my Instant Pot in July 2016. And it is now 2017 that I’m trying my first recipe. That’s embarrassing. But, there was a lot going with us during that time. We put our house up for sale just weeks later, bought a new house to build, moved into an apartment in the meantime, then moved again into our newly-built house just 4 months later, then had a baby 2.5 weeks later!

I’m in an Instant Pot group on Facebook and a lot of people referenced Pressure Luck for recipes and that is how I found the creamy chicken enchilada recipe.

Directions can be found on the Pressure Luck website! There’s also a YouTube video if you prefer following recipes that way.

I followed the recipe almost exactly (I just used different cheeses). But, as a first time user, I had to look up so many small questions, such as:

  1. What is natural release vs. quick release?
  2. Why doesn’t it start counting down right away?
  3. How long does it take to build up pressure?
  4. Etc.

Prentyce gave it 4 stars out of 5. I gave it the same. All the cheese gave me gas. Sorry, TMI!

It was a whole pan full, and there’s only two of us, so we did freeze 2/3 of it to heat up during the week. I just microwaved it for 2-3 minutes before eating. I haven’t tried putting it in the oven, but maybe I will next time since the flour tortilla came out a weird texture from the microwave.

That’s it! Good luck!
