  • 1 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 19 oz can enchilada sauce
  • 1 10 oz can diced tomatoes and green chiles
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1 1.25 oz package taco seasoning
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts diced into bite sized pieces
  • 3 cups dried rotini pasta
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican cheese
  • scallions, olives, diced tomatoes, and fresh cilantro for serving


  • Spray an 8 by 8 inch pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Select Saute on your instant pot and add the vegetable oil to the pressure cooker.  Once it is hot, add the onions and saute for 3 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 more minute.
  • Stir in the enchilada sauce, tomatoes with chiles, water, and taco seasoning. Then add the diced chicken and pasta.  Lock the lid in place and select High Pressure and 4 minutes cook time.
  • When the cook time ends, turn off the pressure cooker.  Use the quick pressure please.  When the valve drops, carefully remove the lid.  Select the saute setting and cook for 1 more minute, stirring, until the pasta is tender.
  • Turn off the Instant Pot and pour the mixture into the square baking dish.  Sprinkle the cheese on top.  Place under a broiler and broil until the cheese melts and starts to brown.
  • Serve topped with olives, tomatoes, scallions, and cilantro.
