Ingredients

Instructions

  • Turn your Instant Pot or Pressure cooker onto Sauté.
  • While it heats, coat the chicken with the cumin, chile, and salt.
  • Pour the oil into the pressure cooker once it is hot, and add the coated chicken pieces. 
  • You are doing this step to get the spices to "bloom" a little bit to get their full flavor. So cook it for 4-5 minutes, and you should be good to go.
  • Add everything else into the pressure cooker and close. 
  • Cook at high pressure for 15 minutes, and allow it to release pressure naturally for 10 minutes. Release all remaining pressure.
  • Use two forks to shred the chicken a bit more if you're serving as tacos, or eat over rice.
