Making Taco Dip in the Instant Pot

I used to make my taco dip using my slow cooker. It’s a fantastic way to marry the flavors and it’s perfect for when you’re not in a rush. However, we enjoy this dip so much that sometimes we don’t really want to wait.

Making Taco Dip in the Instant Pot is super quick and it’s very easy. The only real work in making this Instant Pot Taco dip is dicing the onion that is added into the pot. Even though making this dip in the Instant Pot is super quick, it doesn’t sacrifice any of the flavors what slow-cooking would create. It’s a win-win!

When making this taco dip in a pressure cooker it’s important to layer the ingredients. This will prevent a burn notice and a lot of frustration! As tempted as you may be to stir the pot, don’t do it!

Instant Pot Taco Dip served with tortilla chip rounds in blue bowl.

To layer the ingredients for this taco dip, start with the beans. Top the beans off with the taco seasoning, and then layer the refried beans on top. Next, add the water on top of the ingredients. Remember, do not stir.

Next, add the super sweet corn and the onion, followed by the tomato sauce and the Rotel tomatoes.

Close the lid and pressure cook for 7 minutes. Carefully do a quick release. Refer to your manual for directions on how to safely do this.

After opening the lid, stir the ingredients and set the Instant Pot to Sauté. Stir in the cream cheese until melted and add in the shredded cheddar cheese.
