Next time I think I would either drain the tomatoes and chiles, or add less chicken stock.
Good, maybe needs a little more seasoning?
I’m still new at this – this was the first time I’ve had anything stick to the pot.
If it’s sticking it needs more liquids. Also never stir the pasta. Just break & fan it on top. Make sure liquids cover it.
I did the same thing by draining the tomatoes and chiles because I had a mess the first time.
I don’t use all the ingredients and add some of my own but we love this recipe. Thanks!
This was really great tasting…. but I seriously had to continuously stir while simmering the spaghetti. I think next time I’ll do the spaghetti 3 min on high pressure then add cheese and stir on simmer a few minutes to melt cheese
how long do i let it naturally release for? by high heat, do you mean high pressure? Tonight is my first time using it and I’m totally confused
Rose Atwater says
Yes, high pressure. Naturally release until the button drops.
This is one I would like to try. I love spicy chicken spaghetti.
Soooo yummy! Thank you for sharing!!

This is my favorite instant pot recipe! I usually leave out the cheddar and pepper jack because the cream cheese makes it perfectly creamy. And after adding the noodled I add an extra 2 cups of chicken broth so the noodles don’t stick. Then I turn it on warm or slow cook and let it thicken. I’ve made it so many times and make it for parties. My friends, my boyfriend, and myself all love it!
SO delicious! New go-to meal for our house!
