Put your Instant Pot on saute and add your olive oil, ground beef, spices (or taco seasoning packet) and diced onions. Brown meat until pink is gone. Turn pressure cooker off. Can drain if you desire, or not.
Pour in tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and beef broth, do not stir.
Pour in uncooked noodles and gently press down so they are submerged into the liquid, do not stir.
Put lid on Instant Pot and close steam valve.
Set to pressure high for 3 minutes.
Do a quick release.
Sprinkle 1.5 c cheese on top and put lid back on to warm cheese and allow to melt for at least 5 minutes, 10 is better to allow sauce to thicken as well.
Serve with a dollop of sour cream on top or put 1/2 c. sour cream into pot and stir for a creamy taco casserole style meal! Will thicken more upon standing.
