Tips for making Instant Pot Cheesy Chipotle Pasta:
you can use less or omit the butter for a lighter version
you can use any variety of shredded cheese(s) that you would like, I just think cheddar complements chipotle peppers best
be sure to quick release pressure to avoid having soggy noodles
stir in milk and cheese immediately for the creamiest result
if you like your food super spicy, throw 1-2 more chipotle peppers into your milk mixture
this stores well in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to one week
to re-heat, warm using the ‘saute’ function on your Instant Pot stirring frequently or put in an covered oven-proof dish and bake at 350 F until warmed throughout
this was made and tested using a 6 quart Instant Pot. I cannot yet attest to how well this works with a mini or an 8 quart Instant Pot
