Chicken burrito or Taco Bowls

This recipe is GREAT for oamc (freezer meals) Wrap in tortillas and wrap each one separately, and place into a 5 gallon bag freezer bag to freeze.

Instant Pot Taco Bowls are both easy and amazing, For this recipe, I used chicken, but you can also add beef as well. It takes about 30 min start to finish, and kids will love it. Add sour cream, lettuce, avocado, Sky's the limit on the toppings! Wrap it in a tortilla, or serve it in a bowl with chips. It's amazing either way!


Chicken Taco Bowl/burrito Toppings:

  • Lettuce

  • Onions

  • Sour cream

  • Avocado

  • plain Greek yogurt

  • fresh chopped cilantro

I started with frozen chicken thighs (To me, they are more tender and juicier.) Add to your instant pot with 1 1/2 cup water. Place your lid on, make sure you are on sealing and not venting, press manual or pressure cook for 25 min with an instant release.


Open lid, and remove chicken thighs, remove skin and shred, but keep the pieces bigger. reserve 2 cups of the chicken broth from your instant pot, (strain and save the rest for later dishes. Freeze.) Place Chicken back into your instant pot with reserved broth. Add taco seasoning, seasoned pinto beans, green chili's, salsa, corn, onion powder, garlic salt, salt and pepper, cilantro, and rice (last) 


Place your lid on, make sure you are on sealing and not venting, press manual (or pressure cook) set timer for 10 min (or select rice setting) both will work. When done, instant release, Fluff rice with a fork and mix well. Stir in one cup of fiesta Cheese then sprinkle 1/2 cup of fiesta cheese on top. Serve with toppings listed above in a bowl with tortilla chips or in a tortilla with toppings. YUM!
