  2. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon and set aside on a paper towel-lined plate.

  4. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  5. Using the display panel select the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 7 minutes.
  6. When the time is up, quick-release the remaining pressure.
  7. Add the cheese, ranch dressing and reserved bacon. Stir to combine.
  8. Serve hot.

    This was an easy recipe that I made for a football party, and it was a big hit! I added Black Pepper to the recipe. I think i may also add green onions or Chives next time.

    It was not what I expected. In regards to the ranch dressing, should I have used the liquid dressing or the ranch dressing mix powder? I actually used the liquid and it turned into a gooey mess. Could someone please clarify this. Second, on the final step, should all of the ingredients be combined into the Instant Pot, or a separate bowl.

    Came out great. I did add and take away from tbe recipe. I didn’t add cheese and I didnt use ranch liquid dressing. I added some seasoning ranch pack into tbe pot for cooking and then when done I added more with bacon and tossed potatoes to coat.
