First gather up all of your ingredients. You’re going to love that you can brown your ground beef right inside your Instant Pot using the saute feature!

This Instant Pot recipe is the perfect way to make cheese sauce. I think you will love how easy it is.

The diced tomatoes, Velveeta, beef, green chilies and spices come together to make the perfect dip recipe.


  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 1 tsp chili powder (if you like it with an extra kick)
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp. taco seasoning
  • 10 oz can Rotel¬† (also known as tomatoes and green chiles – you can totally get the off brand)
  • 32 oz bar of Velveeta Cheese


Turn Instant Pot on saute and wait until it gets hot.

Add the olive oil to the bottom of your cooker insert.

Add the ground beef, your taco seasoning,  Rotel, and onions and cook together until no longer pink.

What I love about Rotel is that it comes in different variations of heat. You can get mild, regular or hot.

Cut the Velveeta into cubes and add it to the insert evenly.

No need to stir.

Put the lid on your pressure cooker and ensure the vent is on sealed.

Cook on manual high pressure for 4 minutes.

When the timer goes off, move the vent to quick release.

Remove the lid once the release is over and stir the cheese to combine well.

It will be smooth and creamy.

Look at how delicious this is!

We like to serve it with tortilla chips. We dip.

You can cover your chips and use it as nacho cheese.

You can serve this inside burritos or smother over tour cooked chicken breasts.

So many uses and just delicious!

Enjoy your Instant Pot queso dip!

  1. I had absolutely no idea you could make cheese dip in the instant pot. I have only used mine a couple of times, so I am still not 100% comfortable using it. But I think I will try this one, especially since baseball playoffs are coming up.
