Bacon Jalapeño Cheeseburger Casserole
This Bacon Jalapeño Cheeseburger Casserole is cheesy, beefy comfort food with a spicy tomato sauce, made in one pot with burger toppings!
- 1 lb extra-lean ground beef
- 1 yellow onion diced
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 2 tbsp ketchup
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp each salt & pepper
- 1 (796mL) can diced tomatoes
- 2 cups beef broth
- 2 cups dried rotini pasta
- 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
- 4 slices turkey or pork bacon
- 1 fresh jalapeño pepper thinly sliced
- 1 tomato chopped
- 1 small red onion diced
Heat a large saucepan over med-high heat. Add ground beef and onion, cooking for 3-4 minutes before stirring in garlic ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and salt & pepper.
Add in diced tomatoes, beef broth and pasta. Bring to a boil before covering, reducing heat and simmering and stirring occasionally until pasta is cooked and has absorbed most of the liquid, about 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile cook bacon (if serving) in a pan until crispy and prepare other toppings.
Remove pasta from heat and stir in cheese. Garnish with bacon, tomatoes, red onion and sliced jalapeño peppers, then serve and enjoy!
INSTANT POT INSTRUCTIONS
Turn Instant Pot to saute mode. Saute ground beef and onions for 4-5 minutes, or until beef is browned.
Add all remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot in order they are listed above, with the exception of cheese and toppings.
Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes, then do a quick release of the pressure.
Stir in cheese, then serve topped with toppings of choice. Enjoy!
