Tender and super flavorful, this pressure cooker / instant pot beef burrito filling has just the right amount of spice and it’s perfect for your taco or burrito night. Also, nothing can beat the cooking time!

Dear friends, I am Instant-Pot(ting) all.the.things! It’s almost unbelievable just how fast our meals can come together in this fancy little pot. The food is moist, juicy, and it just tastes SO good.

I now know why my mom swore by her pressure cooker when we were little. A home cooked meal was on the dinner table night after night because of her pressure cooker. Now it’s my turn. 😀

Although, I have to admit, I have always cooked and I am a huuuge fan of home cooked meals. Whether it’s fast or slow, I love to cook and always will. Stove top, oven, slow cooker, instant pot… I do not care so long as my food tastes as good as it can.

These Instant Pot Beef Burritos are the perfect weeknight meal that you can enjoy, wrapped up with lots (or less) of cheese, hot sauce, sour cream and lettuce. All optional toppings, but man do they go well with a hot wrapped burrito!

Here’s how all this is gonna go down:

HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT BEEF BURRITOS

  1. We will first sauté our onions and garlic in a bit of oil. A sprinkle of chili powder and cumin will be added to the pot, as well as a cup of broth.
  2. We’re then going to add in our ground beef, corn, beans, tomatoes, and rice.
  3. We are going to set the pressure manually on HIGH for 10 minutes. This means that it will take the instant pot/pressure cooker about 10 minutes to come to pressure, and then it will start the 10-minute cook time.
  4. When done, you will want to stir everything together and then fill up your flour tortillas with the filling.
  5. Optionally, you can top the burritos with hot sauce, shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce and sour cream.

Here’s one thing I gotta tell ya about the rice. I had to test this recipe 4 times because of the rice. White long grain rice didn’t cook through in the instant pot. The meat did, but the rice just wasn’t having it.

I then tried it with brown rice… that caused an even bigger headache. It was just as crunchy as before I “cooked” it.

Guess what DID work? JASMINE RICE. Aaaand, 5-minute brown rice. Putting the rice on top of everything was also a smart move. On the bottom, the rice burned fairly quickly and didn’t cook the rest of my food.

Beauty of this recipe is that it’s SO versatile. No ground beef? Use ground turkey! No tomatoes? Use salsa! Don’t want rice? Don’t use it! Hot sauce on the side? WHY NOT! Sour cream over the top? YAHS, please! Avocados? Of course!

Always make it your own because YOU are the one who is going to eat it.

ENJOY!

    I think you’ll find if you make sure you have 50/50 liquid to rice and DON’T quick release regular white rice will work fine.

    To clarify, I don’t need to cook the beef before using the saute setting? I just don’t usually see recipes where you don’t cook the ground beef first before sealing and pressure cooking so I wanted to make sure! 🙂

    I can’t find my comment now, but thank you for replying! Unfortunately I don’t have chicken stock either, but hoping water and extra spices will help! Thx!

    1. Hi! Yes, but make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature before assembling the burritos… if you prepare them while ingredients are still warm, the burritos will be soggy. Once you assemble the burritos, wrap them up in plastic wrap, then aluminum foil, and stack them up in ziploc bags, and freeze.
