  • 15 oz can black beans
  • 15 oz can corn drained
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened and cut into cubs
  • 1 onion chopped 
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • Salt to taste

Toppings: 

  • Shredded cheese

  • Jalapeno

Instructions: 

  1. Set Instant Pot to saute!
  2. Cook the ground beef for 5-8 minutes or until no longer pink. 
  3. Add chopped onions, chopped bell pepper, and minced garlic cook for an additional minute. Press the cancel button. 
  4. Transfer the meat to a strainer and drain the fat. Trust me, don’t skip this step! Return the meat and onion mix to the Instant Pot.

  10. Add ½ cup shredded cheese and mix. Repeat with the other ½ cup of cheese and mix.
