- 1 yellow onion, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 lime, juiced
- salt and ground black pepper
- corn tortillas
- optional toppings: guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese, cilantro
- Stir chicken and taco seasoning together in a bowl until chicken is evenly coated.
- Set pressure cooker to Sauté on Normal. When it reads "HOT", add oil.
- Sear chicken tenderloins until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Press the Cancel button to turn off the Sauté function.
- Add tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, garlic, and lime juice to chicken; season with salt and pepper.
- Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing. Select Poultry and cook on High Pressure for 4 minutes.
- Set steam vent handle to Venting to quick-release pressure. Press Cancel.
- Press the Sauté button on Normal and cook the chicken and bell peppers until liquid is reduced and desired consistency is reached, 2 to 4 minutes.
- Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken and bell peppers to tortillas.
- Serve with your favorite toppings.
Use chicken breasts instead of tenderloins if you already have them on hand! Just cut the breasts from top to bottom into 1/4-inch thick strips. The cook time will be the same.
Substitute flour tortillas for the corn tortillas if desired!
You can buy the pre-made taco seasoning or make your own for a fresh, preservative-free version.

caroline chambers says:
Yum. Definitely liquidy but like the author said, just use a slotted spoon to drain off before building your tortillas!
Jason Owens says:
Tasty but very runny. Probably will make a good soup for leftovers.
Haley Morrison says:
Very easy. Only used half the peppers, onions and tomatoes in the multipot with the chicken — the rest we kept whole and chopped as toppings. Kids loved it!
Jennifer Shafei says:
Tasted great, but very watery. I had to put the chicken and veggies in a strainer. Good news, I’m going to use the liquid from this in a veggie soup.
Lisa Tisdel says:
Was easy to make but very runny and sort of bland. I added some seasonings to my increase the flavor
