These Instant Pot Chicken Taco Bowls are a quick and easy “dump and start” meal! A one pot dinner that is both budget friendly and packed with flavor!
Are you an Instant Pot fan like me? I jumped into the Instant Pot world last year and haven’t looked back. In fact, I now own 2! So convenient, time saving, and I swear the food is way more flavorful!
Last week, I decided to make chicken tacos for dinner. I had planned on making my Cilantro Lime Chicken, however, when I went into the refrigerator…I realized I had no limes! Not even lime juice, ugh! Having to scratch that plan, I decided to make a variety of the recipe and make it an all in one meal. Why not toss the rice, beans, veggies, and chicken altogether and save on time, right?!
Well, luckily for me, the end result was a hit! Even my three kiddos (typically picky eaters) loved this!
We each added our own toppings, making it fit to our tastes! My hubby and I had jalapenos on ours, my kids opted for an extra scoop of sour cream and salsa, etc. It was a great way to enjoy a quick and easy dinner! Even the leftovers reheated perfectly for lunch the next day!
Having a family of 5, being budget friendly is always great and this is just that! A one pot meal, adaptable to anyone’s preferences, and you can use ingredients on sale! If tomatoes are on sale, get a few and use them as toppings. Avocados, cheeses, peppers, etc.
