Is this enchilada recipe spicy?

Technically, no. There are chilis in it but that doesn’t always equate to heat. If you’re wanting to make it spicy, you easily can. Add in some spicy chili peppers or some fresh jalapeño peppers and that will really take up the heat.

Close your instant pot lid. Close the valve by pushing it away from you. Set your instant pot to high-pressure for 10 minutes. Once the 10 minutes is done, allow your instant pot to naturally release for about 10 more minutes. Once that is complete, manually release by pulling the valve towards you to open the pressure. Make sure to use a towel or hot pad to protect your hands from steam.

Using two forks, or a hand mixer, shred your chicken inside your instant pot with the liquid.

Add to your instant pot half of your cheese (1 cup). Mix well.

Add to your instant pot your tortillas. Mix well.

Finish by adding the remaining cheese to your instant pot.

With your instant pot remaining on warm, lock the lid in place and allow it to sit for about five minutes. This will allow the remaining cheese to melt, as well as the tortillas to take on the flavors of the casserole.
