Not Your Mama’s Instant Pot Taco Casserole!
The first time I had a breakfast casserole “omelet” was a sad day.
A friend made it for me. It was moving day. We were moving from Idaho to Colorado, the other side of the Rockies.
My friend was my roommate (aka adopted sister) who made living in that town feel like home. She made my kids pancakes, and knowing that I can’t have gluten, she made a special breakfast casserole just for me.
I don’t need to tell you she’s a special friend. Or that I miss her like crazy. Everyone needs a friend like her.

Notes for Recipe for Cheesy Super Taco Pie Instant Pot Omelet
This casserole is very different from the one my dear friend made for me. It’s the same idea but with different ingredients and methods.
Hers was made in the oven, mine in the instant pot. Hers was a tasty bacon base, mine is taco-inspired.
This recipe feeds our whole family of 6 easily. My kids are young, though, and I have no teenagers yet. If you have bigger kids or teenagers, it might be a good idea to make a side of bacon to go with this Super Taco Instant Pot Omelet.

You can also serve your instant pot taco casserole omelet with a dollop of sour cream, which is what we do. Or try some salsa on your taco omelet.
You’ll find the Keto Super Taco Meat recipe here. I have a skillet version and an Instant Pot version on that post. Enjoy!
