Homemade Hamburger Helper Recipe
My Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni (Homemade Hamburger Helper Recipe) is an awesome almost effortless, homemade hamburger helper. The taste makes it seem like you slaved over this meal, and I myself, being that I am often dramatic would pretend to have spent hours on it. I promise you will never go back to the boxed version of this hamburger helper recipe!
Amazon has this cool little ground beef chopper that crumbled the meat perfectly for this meal. I actually bought it a few months back and never used it, but it crumbled the meat just right.

I can not tell you enough how amazing this Instant Pot Cheeseburger Macaroni Hamburger Helper was. The hot sauce added tremendously to the flavors without making it too spicy. My youngest doesn’t really like spicy foods, but she loved this.
This was one of my favorite childhood comfort foods and has become a fast adult favorite. Only it is better because I know exactly what goes into the recipe! And I can assure you, that you will never want to touch that boxed stuff again.
We really don’t know how we got through life before the Instant Pot. I rarely have time to cook, but with this thing, I am cooking daily and sometimes more than 1 meal in a single day. If you want more kid approved recipes, check out 21 Kid Approved Instant Pot Recipes.
