We have 3 growing boys in our house and growing appetites! Meat Loaf and potatoes have become a staple for us. And our 7 year old even calls it his ” Favorite Dinner ever”.
This Instant Pot meatloaf and potatoes are of course easy (our favorite thing about the Instant pot), cooked in one pot and done without heating up the house with a hot oven on for an hour! (we only turn on the broiler for a few minutes to caramelize the top at the end. But, more on that later!)

The boys love to help mix this all together. We have begun to have more enjoyable times working in the kitchen together recently, I can actually give them simple jobs to do without freaking out! 🙂 (yay! Mom win)
We have these kids’ kitchen tools for them to use!!
Instant Pot Meatloaf and potatoes
Is there anything more comfort food than that?
Here’s how we make our Instant Pot Meatloaf and potatoes
skip to the bottom for a printable version of the recipe
Start by peeling and chopping your potatoes. We love this automatic peeler!!
Add 1 and 1/2 cups of water to the instant pot, and place the trivet down too ( this prevents any potatoes sticking to the bottom and causing the burn notice.)
pour the potatoes into the pot.
Next, mix all of the meatloaf ingredients together..
This is one of our favorite crock pot dinners converted for the beloved Instant Pot! And I'm so excited that now this meal is ready in under 30 minutes!!!!!! If you like "wet" burritos you will love this meal!
turn your Instant Pot on to Saute and allow to heat up a minute. Add Oil and swish around, add meat. Allow the meat to brown, stirring frequently to brown all sides. Be sure to scrape up any bits on the bottom of the pot.
Add bullion and enchilada sauce, stir and secure the lid Make sure the valve is set to seal and press pressure cook Adjust time to 12 minutes. This came to pressure in under 10 minutes because the pot is already hot.
Let the meat Naturally Pressure Release for 5-10 minutes. Then release the remaining pressure manually.
Meanwhile, heat up the refried beans (using the microwave or a saucepan on the stove top.)
Place Tortillas on your plates ( I like deep dish plates for all that yummy sauce) Spoon some beans on each tortilla and a spoonful of meat roll up the tortilla.
Pour sauce over the top and sprinkle with cheese. ( If you are making this right away the cheese will melt but if not, you can stick this under the broiler for a minute or two) We love to finish this off with a dollop of sour cream and dip tortilla chips in the sauce!
We hope you enjoy this conversion of an old favorite to the amazing Instant pot. If you are new to the Instant Pot please search here on Love and Scribbles for some tips, tricks and learn why we love it so very much! 🙂
