Instant Pot Beef Nachos Casserole
This Instant Pot beef nachos casserole was another weeknight winner! Everyone loved it and the leftovers were packed in my son’s thermal lunchbox today along with a handful of tortilla chips and an avocado. Lucky for him!
Ideas to make this meal even better…
- One of the best ways to eat this is to add a few tamed jalapenos on top (not pictured). Listen! You really need to try the Mezzetta Deli-Sliced Tamed Jalapeno Peppers. They have a bit of a kick similar to banana peppers. You can find them next to the pickles. They add a punch to lots of meals. My brother-in-law once made grilled cheese sandwiches with cream cheese and those jalapenos and it was life changing.
- I did have the thought that I should have added a can of drained black or pinto beans to this meal and next time I definitely will.
- Ground turkey or chicken can be used in the place of ground beef with no changes.
- Pump up the flavor even more with a can of fire roasted tomatoes instead of the diced tomatoes. Or you could even add in a cup of salsa instead of the tomatoes.
- For toppings you really could go crazy. Try sliced olives, diced avocados, sour cream, extra cheese, diced fresh tomatoes, green onions, cilantro, etc.
- I used parboiled rice but you can use any type of rice that you like. Just follow the cooking times in the green chart.
