These homemade Instant Pot Chicken Enchiladas are so delicious and thanks to the Instant Pot, a snap to make. The chicken and homemade enchilada sauce are prepared in the Instant Pot, then the enchiladas are assembled and baked in the oven. One of the features I love on my Instant Pot is the sauté feature. It’s so convenient to sauté the garlic, onion and jalapeño right in the pot, then add the chicken broth, tomato sauce, spices and chicken to cook. Once the chicken is cooked, remove and shred and you have all the ingredients to assemble the best chicken enchiladas you have ever had. So easy, you will never go back to store bought enchilada sauce again. This enchilada sauce tastes so fresh and flavorful next to canned enchilada sauce, there is really no comparison! I’ve also included a note in the recipe to convert these to slow cooker chicken enchiladas if you prefer.
