Garlic seasoned ground beef layered with enchilada sauce, corn tortillas and shredded cheeses. An easy casserole version of enchiladas.  



Equipment needed: pan for pot-in-pot cooking and trivet/sling

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 Tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp garlic salt
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 (10 oz) can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies)
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 (10 oz) can red enchilada sauce
  • Corn tortillas, torn into 2 inch pieces (5 larger size or 12 street taco size)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded colby cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded monterey jack cheese
  • Topping ideas: sour cream, cilantro, diced tomatoes, diced red onion, avocado, jalapenos


  1. In a pan on the stove or in your Instant Pot using the sauté setting brown the ground beef and onions together for about 5 minutes. Drain off any excess grease. 
  2. Add in the garlic, garlic powder, garlic salt, cumin, chili powder, Rotel and black beans. Stir. 
  3. In a 7 inch by 4 inch pan* layer the following ingredients 3 times: ⅓ of the meat mixture, ⅓ of the torn tortillas, ⅓ of the cheeses, ⅓ of the enchilada sauce. 
  4. Clean out Instant Pot (if used) and pour 1 cup water into the bottom of it. 
  5. Cover the pan with foil. Place on a trivet/sling*. Lower the pan into the Instant Pot.
  6. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 25 minutes. When time is up move the valve to venting.
  7. Remove the lid and the pan. Scoop onto plates and enjoy with desired toppings.  


I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. You can make this in the 8 quart pot with no changes (except to use 1.5 cups or water underneath trivet instead of 1 cup).
