What To Serve With Instant Pot Lasagna Fiesta Style
These recipes are truly tasty accompaniments to Instant Pot Lasagna Fiesta Style.
How about some Mexican Corn Bread? Corn bread is a fan-favorite, and this version ups the fiesta flavor with the addition of cheese and green chiles. It is a perfect pairing for this recipe.
This Mexican Coleslaw is one of my favorites. If you haven't tried it, you really should give it a whirl.
Looking for a little "starter" or appetizer to munch on while the Instant Pot Lasagna Fiesta Style cooks? Sweet Corn, Tomato & Avocado Salsa served with corn chips will satisfy until dinnertime.
And, since everyone loves dessert, a nice light choice such as Easy Orange Fluff is a great way to cap off this delicious meal. If you'd prefer ice cream instead, I'm pretty partial to my friend's Butter Pecan ice cream. It's delish!
How to Make Instant Pot Lasagna Fiesta Style
Step #1: Turn the Instant Pot on to sauté mode and brown the ground beef. Drain the grease and add taco seasoning to the meat.
Step #2: In a 7-inch springform pan, layer ingredients in this order: tortilla, taco meat, refried beans, cheese, taco sauce. Repeat two more times.
Step #3: Add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot. Cover the springform pan loosely with aluminum foil and set on the Instant Pot trivet and lower into the inner pot of the pressure cooker.
Step #4: Close the lid on the Instant Pot. Make sure the valve is set to sealed, and turn to manual high pressure for 8 minutes.
Step #5: Do a quick release, remove the springform pan, and serve.
Favorite Instant Pot Supplies

- Tall Trivet Set- Use this handy too when cooking a recipe in the inner pot and second recipe (or part of a recipe, like rice) utilizing the pot-in-pot method
- Sling- You'll want to have a sling when you use the pot-in-pot method, like when you make cheesecake.
- Instant Pot Inner Pot - I like to have an extra inner pot available because of how much cooking I do in my Instant Pot. It comes in really handy when I want to put a lid on the inner pot and refrigerate the leftovers, or mix up ingredients the night before to save time at the end of the day.
