Notes

If you don't already have an Instant Pot, I recommend the 6 quart model for a family of 4 people. It's big enough for leftovers.
Also, you will need enchilada sauce and Better than Bouillon for this recipe. You could of course use enchilada sauce from a can, but it is simple and easy to make your own, and it takes only about ten minutes. I highly recommend making it as then you can adjust the spices to your taste. Here's my recipe for homemade enchilada sauce.
