Ingredients Needed to Make the Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni

Making the Cheeseburger Macaroni is easy as long as you have the right ingredients to make it. You should have:

  • Ground Chuck. The ground chuck is perfect for offering that beefy flavor you would get from biting into a cheeseburger.
  • Elbow Macaroni. Use elbow macaroni as the pasta for this dish.
  • Beef Broth. Adding beef broth to the dish will keep it savory and moist instead of dry and flavorless.
  • Shredded Cheddar Cheese. The shredded cheddar cheese makes your macaroni creamy and flavorful.
  • Monterey Jack. Using Monterey jack is the perfect way to give your macaroni a unique taste as it blends in great with the ground chuck and cheddar cheese.

You will also need salt, pepper, chopped onion, Worcestershire sauce, dry mustard, tomato paste, and sour cream to prepare this fulfilling meal.

When you would like to save the Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni because you have made a large batch and have some leftover, you should put it into a food container with an airtight lid. If you put it in the fridge, it stays good for up to four days.

If you need to save your cheeseburger macaroni a bit longer, put it in the freezer. You can expect it to continue to taste good as long as you reheat it within three months of freezing it. Make sure you know how long you have had it stored in the freezer by labeling it with the date.

Variations of the Big Family Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni

You can make different variations of the Cheeseburger Macaroni to satisfy your tastebuds. While ground chuck is the preferred type of meat to use in this dish, you can also use other ground meat options, including ground turkey and chicken, especially if you prefer chicken and turkey burgers over traditional burgers. 

You can add more cheese options to this recipe, including cream cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, and Colby jack cheese. You might want to add some finely chopped vegetables into the mix, such as broccoli and carrots. Adding chopped veggies is the perfect way to sneak them in when you have picky eaters at home who do not like to eat their vegetables.

Slow Cooker Option

Perhaps what is most wonderful about this meal is that there is a slow cooker option. If you don’t want to use the Instant Pot, make sure you check out how to make it in the slow cooker, the directions are in the recipe card.
