Instant Pot Chicken Tacos

I usually rely heavily on my slow cooker for anytime I want to make chicken tacos. It’s so easy to just throw everything in the slow cooker and go. Then come dinner time, I have a tender flavorful chicken filling for my tacos. However, what about Instant Pot chicken tacos?

Since I love making it in the slow cooker, I figured I’d love in the instant pot too. It does take about 1 hr and 20 minutes total to make it in the instant pot. However, this is still much quicker than the slow cooker and I can’t forget to put it in the slow cooker in the morning (yep, I do that). I can get home from work and have plenty of time to toss everything into my instant pot.

These instant pot chicken tacos are moist and flavorful just like any slow cooker version I have made before. This meat can also be used for more than just tacos. Try in in a burrito, quesadilla, nachos, or even a salad! It would be perfect to make for the big game this Sunday!
