  • 2 pounds chicken tenderloins
  • 1 taco seasoning packet
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 (24 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 green bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch thick strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch thick strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, cut into 1/4-inch thick strips
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • juice of 1 lime
  • salt and pepper
  • corn tortillas
  • optional toppings: guacamole, salsa, shredded cheese, cilantro


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Stir chicken and taco seasoning together in a bowl until chicken is evenly coated.
  2. Set pressure cooker to Sauté on Normal. When it reads "HOT", add oil.
  3. Sear chicken tenderloins until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Press the Cancel button to turn off the Sauté function.
  4. Add tomatoes, bell peppers, onion, garlic, and lime juice to chicken; season with salt and pepper.
  5. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing. Select Poultry and cook on High Pressure for 4 minutes. 
  6. Set steam vent handle to Venting to quick-release pressure. 
  7. Use a slotted spoon to transfer chicken and bell peppers to tortillas.
  8. Serve with your favorite toppings.
Mealthy tip:

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.

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.

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!

Jason Owens says:

Tasty but very runny. Probably will make a good soup for leftovers.

Yum. Definitely liquidy but like the author said, just use a slotted spoon to drain off before building your tortillas!
