Can we just pretend it's Cinco de Mayo every week? Mexican food is one of my favorites and things just got way easier with these amazing Instant Pot Chicken Tacos!
This is one of the EASIEST chicken dinners EVER! Just dump the ingredients into the pressure cooker, stir and cook. That's it. In about 30 minutes you'll have the most perfect chicken taco meat of your life.
These easy chicken tacos are filled with our Instant Pot Mexican Shredded Chicken recipe. Juicy, tender shredded chicken that's been cooked in the pressure cooker with fire roasted tomatoes, fresh lime, chipotle peppers and seasonings.
Our favorite way to serve chicken tacos is on freshly made sourdough tortillas. Homemade tortillas are so soft and delicious! Load them up with jalapeños, sliced radishes, creamy avocado, lime juice and cilantro for a light, fresh version of tacos. And don't forget a sprinkle of queso fresco cheese to top it all off!
Another way to serve them is "street taco" style by topping the chicken with chopped onion and lots of fresh cilantro. Or, just stick to old school toppings like shredded cheddar cheese, lettuce and tomato. And don't forget to whip up the best, restaurant style guacamole ever!
Take the ingredients for the Instant Pot Mexican Shredded Chicken and dump them in the Instant Pot. Press the MANUAL button and set the timer for 15 minutes. Once the time is up, release the pressure and use two forks to shred the chicken.
All that's left to do is assemble your tacos!
