Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1-2 packets taco seasoning Use 1 for a mild flavor and 2 for a spicier flavor.
  • 15 ounces black beans
  • 12 ounces corn I think frozen corn tastes best, but use whatever you like.
  • 15 ounces salsa
  • 3 cups jasmine rice Leave this out for a low carb meal. Cooking instructions below for making it separately.
  • 3 cups chicken broth Use only 1 cup if you are not adding rice.
  • Cheddar cheese shredded
  • fresh cilatnro snipped
  • Greek yogurt or sour cream
  • avocado sliced
  • tomato diced

Instructions
 

  • Add chicken broth to the pot. Place chicken in the broth and sprinkle with taco seasoning, using 1 packet for a mild flavor and 2 packets for more spice. Top with beans, corn, and salsa. Add rice to the pot, if using.
  • Cook on manual pressure for 12 minutes then use quick release to release the pressure.
  • Remove the chicken only from the pot and shred.
  • To serve, top the shredded chicken with corn and beans mixture, cheese, cilantro, tomatoes, avocado, and sour cream.

Notes

For a lower carb or bariatric meal, cook the rice separately or leave it out altogether. Prepare it with 1/2 cup salsa and 2 1/2 cups chicken broth instead of water. This will give it a nice flavor, as if it were cooked with the chicken in the Instant Pot.
This is equally good in taco shells. My kids love it that way.
You can use my homemade taco seasoning in place of packets. Each packet is approximately 2 tablespoons of seasoning.
