Here is the recipe for my Instant Pot Chicken Taco Bowls. I hope you enjoy them as much as me and my family do!
Instant Pot Chicken Taco Bowl Recipe
- 4-5 uncooked boneless, skinless breasts if large, cut in half
- 1-2 packets taco seasoning 1 for mild flavor, 2 for more flavor
- 1 15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 12 oz bag frozen corn
- 1 15.5 oz jar salsa
- 3 cups uncooked jasmine rice rinsed
- 3 cups water or chicken broth
- cheddar cheese
- cilantro optional
- sour cream optional
Add one cup of liquid (water or broth) to the bottom of the pot.
Place chicken breasts in bottom of pressure cooker on top of the liquid. Sprinkle with taco seasoning. Top with beans and corn. Then, pour salsa over everything.
Add rice, then remaining liquid (water or broth).
Cook on manual high pressure for 12 minutes, then use quick release to release the pressure.
Once the pressure has been fully released, remove lid carefully.
Shred chicken. Serve immediately. Top with cheddar cheese, cilantro, and sour cream as desired
NOTE: Readers who have used other types of rice have reported undercooked rice. If possible, stick with jasmine rice.
Also, the original recipe called for one packet of seasoning but many people indicated that they prefer it with more seasoning. I’ve added a note to the recipe to reflect that.
Also, my family is full of rice fanatics. Others have told me this makes way too much rice for their taste. If you’re looking at the recipe thinking “Really? 3 cups of rice?!” you probably fall in the too much rice camp so reduce the rice AND the liquid by one cup.
