South West Instant Pot Burrito

 

We were having a pretty busy week last week and I just needed something really fast to make because to be honest supper slipped my mind. I don’t know if you ever get that way, but I get busy and then the next thing I know I look at the clock and think what do I make! I try to keep a schedule with meals for the week, but I decided to wing it for the week and that didn’t go well for me. So I raided the pantry, fridge, and freezer and figured I had all the ingredients for these South West Instant Pot Burritos so I whipped them up. They hit the spot perfectly, and dinner was a success. No one knew it was a last minute meal idea, or I had spaced out about the time.

Made this and yum! I used only 1 cup of rice, 1/2 cup of water, plus a tablespoon or two to get the rest of the salsa out of the jar and into the pot. There's liquid in the salsa and tomatoes and I didn't want it to be soupy. I did 6 minutes on high pressure because that's how I usually do rice in there. Will definitely do it as a freezer meal!

I just made this and it seems more like soup. I don’t see how I will fill tortillas with this. Has this happened to anyone else?
