  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Place beef chunks in inner steel pot of pressure cooker and pour water over meat.
  2. Lock the pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent handle on Sealing. Select Pressure Cook (Manual) and cook on High Pressure for 35 minutes. Let pressure release naturally.
  3. Transfer meat to a bowl, discard cooking liquid, and shred meat using two forks.
  4. Stir shredded meat, tomatoes, onion, cheese, lettuce, cilantro, chilies, vinegar, and olive oil together. Season with salt and ground black pepper.
  5. Spoon beef mixture onto tortillas, top with avocado, and serve.
Mealthy tip:

Try a variety of spicy chile peppers to increase the heat and switch out the cheese for your favorite to make this dish your own.
