Last week we were in the heart of the busy season, and dinner was barely getting thrown together. I looked at my ingredients and remembered from years ago I made some Enchilada Lasagna, so I thought, why not make it in the Instant Pot!
This is the very basic recipe of Enchilada Lasagna. You can add all kind of vegetables, beans, or just keep it simple.
How to Make Enchilada Lasagna in the instant pot:
Unlike normal lasagna, you don’t need to cook your “noodles” before hand, or cook them long in the oven because they are tortillas! That’s one of the reasons this recipe is so fast to make.
No you can make this in the Instant Pot or in your oven. If the pan you have for your instant pot is too small for your tortillas, just cut the tortillas up and you can arrange them so they will cover everything!
How to make Enchilada Lasagna in the oven:
You can easily make this in the oven. Instead of using a round pan, you can use a 9×9 pan and use the same ingredients, you will just have fewer layers.
Then cook it in the oven until everything is heated through (350 degrees for about 10-15 minutes). You could easily double this recipe and use a 9×13 pan. Still cook it at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
COVERING YOUR LASAGNA
One question we frequently are asked is if you should cover your enchilada lasagna with aluminum foil while it cooks and our answer is YES – if you are cooking it in the Instant Pot. But no need if you are cooking it in the oven.
Now with normal lasagna, you need to over it every single time, but all you need to do is heat things up if you are cooking it in the oven, there is no need.
But we do recommend that you cover the enchilada lasagna in the Instant Pot to help keep some of the moisture out. Especially when you are taking the lid off. You can use foil, or a lid that comes with your pan. (THIS pan is the one I use!)
