Chicken Burrito Lasagna (Instant Pot) – Only 5 Ingredients!

You read that right. Do you like lasagna? How about burritos? And enchiladas? Consider this layered, saucy chicken dish a hybrid of all three.

This recipe comes to us from Denise at mylifecookbook.com. There are links below to see more from My Life Cookbook that we encourage you to check out and enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 4 small flour tortillas
  • 1 1/4 cup salsa
  • 1/2 can refried beans.
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked chicken
  • 1 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

PUTTING THE BURRITO LASAGNA TOGETHER

The 5 ingredients are cooked chicken, salsa, cheese, tortillas, and refried beans. So to make this dish, you want to use a springform pan so that it holds [its] shape. I first spread some refried beans on a tortilla and then placed it on the bottom. Then I added the (frozen) shredded chicken, spooned the salsa and finally sprinkled some shredded cheese. I repeat the layers 3 times and then placed a final tortilla on top with just the salsa and cheese. 

HOW TO BAKE LASAGNA IN THE INSTANT POT

Place the trivet in the Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water on the bottom. Place the springform pan on the trivet and press the manual button for 10 minutes and let it cook. When it’s done use a quick release. Take it out of the pot and let it sit for 10 minutes before taking it out of the springform pan.

As I said it’s easy and doesn’t take much time and is a great quick and easy dinner. I hope you like it as much as we did. Enjoy!
