Instant Pot Lazy Taco Lasagna; A kid friendly super fast weeknight meal made in under 30 minutes in your Instant Pot. Taco Tuesday made easy!    This is one of those meals that you can make when you’ve forgotten to Meal Prep but still need to get dinner on the table. No one will know that it’s only got 6 ingredients and you likely have them all on hand in your fridge and pantry.

  • Ground Beef
  • Salsa, use your favourite
  • Green chiles
  • Oven Ready lasagna noodles
  • Shredded cheese
  • Taco Seasoning

Elevate the everyday; easy substitutions & great toppings

Although this Instant Pot Lazy Taco Lasagna is great as is, sometimes I like to elevate the everyday.  Here are a few suggestions that take very little effort and really add a little something special.

  • Use half ground beef and half chorizo sausage
  • Substitute Shredded Mexican Chicken, (also made in the the Instant Pot) for the ground beef
  • Add in 2 Tbsp Chipotle in Adobo to the salsa, for some smokiness
  • Make it Taco Lasagna Supreme with Lime Crema,  Cilantro, and a few diced tomatoes on top

Which Instant Pot is best?

People often ask which Instant Pot I use and recommend.   I have three!     I cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for 6-8 people everyday and I use my Instant Pot at least 3 times a week.  On the weekends, when I’m making all my prepaheadables, I often have all three going at the same time.   I have two 6 quart Duo’s and an 8 quart that I use for cooking up big batches of my weekly  Instant Pot Soups.

    Lara has done it again! I made this recipe for dinner last night and it was fantastic. It got rave reviews from both my husband and our friend who was over. It was super easy to make and since it was an Instant Pot recipe, it didn’t heat up my house! I’ll definitely be making this one again!
