What Makes This Recipe So Good
- These potatoes are SO very easy to make. All you have to do is chop up the potatoes. The Instant Pot does the rest!
- Cheesy potatoes are simply delicious and comforting. They’re also kid-friendly (um, potatoes and cheese? What kid doesn’t love those?) and I know this’ll become a regular in your family’s dinner rotation. It’s great for cookouts and potlucks, too!
- This recipe is great for meal prep! You can easily double the recipe if needed. These potatoes reheat wonderfully and will keep in the fridge for up to 4 days.
- Different potatoes will give slightly different results and textures. Russet potatoes are my first choice for this recipe, but it’ll work great with Yukon golds or red potatoes, too.
- You can easily make this recipe vegetarian – just swap out the chicken broth for vegetable broth. It’ll still be deliciously rich and flavorful.

- 1 cup chicken broth see Notes
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 2 cups freshly shredded cheddar cheese
- ½ cup sour cream

- Add cubed potatoes, chicken broth, salt, garlic powder, and pepper to Instant Pot. Stir well to combine all ingredients.
- Secure lid on Instant Pot. Set to Manual High Pressure for 5 minutes. Pot will pressurize and then cook time will begin. When 5 minute cook time is up, carefully Quick Release pressure and remove lid.
- Stir in shredded cheese and sour cream until ingredients are fully incorporated and cheese is completely melted. Divide into portions and garnish with sliced green onions. Serve warm.
- Cheese: Use a block of cheddar cheese and shred it yourself. Prepackaged shredded cheeses contain fillers and starches to prevent clumping, which also make it behave a little strangely when you melt it.
- Make it Vegetarian: Use vegetable broth instead of chicken broth.
