Do you sometimes find yourself struggling to find the perfect meal on busy weeknights? I will freely admit, I pretty much live by my pressure cooker and slow cooker since they both allow me to make meals the whole family love without a great deal of prep or time spent in the kitchen. The only difference is one I can’t really put off until the last minute (the downside of the slow cooker). Thankfully, I have my Instant Pot or Fagor Lux to save me if I need a quick, flavorful meal that nearly everyone will love. Best of all, I can make just about any recipe I can imagine, including chicken tacos!
That’s right, I can make truly delicious, flavorful chicken tacos right in my pressure cooker. Best of all, they are made using ingredients that are staples of any kitchen (including the taco seasoning). Oh, and did I mention it is a fraction of the cost of chicken tacos you can get from fast food or your preferred Mexican restaurant? Yeah, they really are that great! I am honestly so happy my friend David from Food N Service shared this delicious recipe with me!
