Easy Instant Pot Dip 

This recipe gives you similar flavors to the classic chili Relleno but in a dip form. You get rich flavors but with minimal effort on your part. That is one of the biggest things I love about the Instant Pot. A hands-off approach for perfectly cooked recipes each and every time. 

Do You Need A Trivet For This Chili Relleno Dip 

Yes, you will use the trivet that came with your Instant Pot. You will put your mixture into an Instant Pot safe dish, for it to cook. The mixture is thick, so if you did it straight in the Instant Pot you would get a burn notice. So a pot within the pot is a must. The trivet will help hold the dish above the water you pour into your Instant Pot. 

How To Serve Your Chili Relleno Dip 

  • Tortilla Chips 
  • Crisp veggies like celery sticks, carrots, etc.
  • Baguettes or Pretzel Crisps
  • Slices of bread or French bread tore up 

You will find this dip is incredible no matter how you serve it up. I have even done warm tortillas and it is a great pairing. Feel free to get creative and use whatever you want.
