Recipe Ingredients:


  • Thinly slice your jalapeno and spring onion. Dice your chicken thighs. Place them into the Instant Pot along with your garlic puree and olive oil. Press sauté and give it a minute or two to get warm.
  • Once the Instant Pot has got warm, sauté them for a minute or two or until the chicken has started to gain colour and the onion has softened.
  • Turn off sauté.
  • Add in your 500ml of chicken stock, macaroni, seasoning and give it a quick stir.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 4 minutes on manual pressure.
  • When it is done use QPR (quick pressure release).
  • Place back on sauté and stir in soft cheese and sweetcorn.
  • Add a layer of grated cheese to the top and some avocado.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot or use the Mealthy Crisp Lid to quickly melt the cheese.
  • 1Serve.


My Instant Pot Jalapeno Popper Pasta is enough to feed a family twice, you’re welcome to half the recipe to feed a family of four or do what I do and put the rest in the freezer for another day.
The best way for melting your cheese on the top of your chicken popper pasta is to use a Mealthy Crisp Lid.
I recommend this bone broth brand for quality chicken stock for your jalapeno popper pasta.
I love to use a classic Mexican seasoning mix, but you could also use taco seasoning and it would give it a delicious flavour.
