Tips for making Instant Pot Chipotle Mac and Cheese:

  • you can use less or omit the butter for a lighter version

  • you can use any variety of shredded cheese(s) that you would like, I just think cheddar complements chipotle peppers best

  • be sure to quick release pressure to avoid having soggy noodles

  • stir in milk and cheese immediately for the creamiest result

  • if you like your food super spicy, throw 1-2 more chipotle peppers into your milk mixture

  • this stores well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week

  • to re-heat, warm using the ‘saute’ function on your Instant Pot stirring frequently or put in an covered oven-proof dish and bake at 350 F until warmed throughout

  • this was made and tested using a 6 quart Instant Pot. I cannot yet attest to how well this works with a mini or an 8 quart Instant Pot
