Cooking Instructions

"This is one of those incredibly easy meals. As the case with most instant pot recipes, dinner is on the table in 30 minutes with time to set the placemats and silverware out to spare. The broth is filled with savory flavors and the hint of spice really melds deliciously with the tender chicken making them some of the best chicken tacos or even a great base for a twist on chicken tortillas soup." —Kita Roberts, Girl Carnivore

Place the chicken in the Instant Pot and toss with the Head County Bar-B-Que sauce, fire-roasted tomatoes, broth, onion, garlic, poblano peppers, and canned chiles.

Set the pressure cooker to 12 minutes on Manual mode and allow the chicken mixture to cook.

When done, allow the steam to release naturally for 5 minutes before carefully releasing the remaining steam manually.

With 2 forks, shred the chicken into small, bite-sized pieces.

Squirt the juice of one lime over the chicken and toss.

Assemble tacos by using a slotted spoon to drain any extra juices from the chicken before filling tortillas.

Top with your favorites: sliced jalapenos, avocados, pickled red onion, crumbled fresh cotija, fire-roasted corn, and cherry tomatoes.

Drizzle additional BBQ sauce over the top, if you’re feeling feisty. Enjoy!
