Say what? Yes, you read that correctly. How to make cornbread with Rotel in the Instant Pot.

If you never tried it, you will want to in a jiffy:) No pun intended. Of course, I used a jiffy cornbread mix.

Jiffy® Corn Muffin Mix – 8.5

1 can of Rotel. You can use any variety of Rotel you desire. I used the Lime juice and Cilantro flavor. If you want to kick it up a notch, use their spicy hot variation.

I changed up the directions on the box just a bit. Instead of adding the 1/3 cup milk, the mix calls for, I used the entire can of Rotel, juice, and all. I also added 2 eggs instead of 1. The entire box mix fits in the mini flower bundt pan.

I made this cornbread using my 3 Qt. Instant Pot, however, you can use this pan and recipe in any size pot you have.

Mini bundt cake pan for Ninja Foodi and Instant Pot

I made this tasty side for a pool party we are going to this evening. This and a cold carrot salad. I don’t know about you, but I am getting tired of the same ole’ potato and macaroni salads. Nope, I’m not crazy about those dishes sitting outside on a table in the summertime. I will be sharing my carrot salad soon. It was delish and so simple!


It’s been said many times already “too pretty to eat”:) I agree, but you can always make another one, and another one, plus a cake, or an omelet, or even a big pancake in the mini flower pan.

  • 1 8.5 oz. Box of Jiffy Cornbread
  • 1 can Rotel (variety of your choice)
  • 2 Eggs


  • In a bowl add the package of Jiffy, two eggs, and the entire can of Rotel with juice. Mix well. (I hand mix.)
  • Prepare a 3 cup bundt pan by lightly spraying with non-stick butter spray.
  • Add one cup of water to the Pressure Cooker. Set pan on a trivet rack with handles for ease of in and out of the pot.
  • Lower pan and rack into the pot. Set on High-Pressure Manual for 25 minutes. Quick-release and remove the pan from the inner pot and set it aside to cool.
  • Once cool, you may flip the cake over on a serving dish. Enjoy with a bowl of chili, a roast dinner, soup, stew, and more!


If using a 6 cup bundt pan, double the recipe by using 2 packages of cornbread mix, 3 eggs instead of two but the same amount of Rotel.
