Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium-sized yellow onion, finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp adobo sauce (from a can of chipotle peppers)
  • 1/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup fire roasted diced tomatoes (pureed in a blender)
  • 1 lb chicken breasts
  • 8 corn tortillas

Topping Ideas

  • Raw onions, diced
  • Tomatoes, diced
  • romaine lettuce, chopped
  • Sliced avocado
  • chopped fresh cilantro
  • Cotija cheese, crumbled

Instructions

  • Add olive oil, onions, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, adobo sauce, broth, tomatoes and chicken to the Instant Pot in that order. Cook on high pressure for 5 minutes (Instant Pot will take 10-15 min to preheat) and do a quick pressure release once the cooking cycle is finished.
  • Open the lid when safe to do so and remove the chicken breasts. Shred apart with a knife and fork, or let cool and shred with your hands. Add back to sauce in Instant Pot and stir until well combined. Replace lid and let sit another 5 min.
  • Meanwhile, microwave corn tortillas for 30 seconds and prepare toppings of choice. Add toppings and chicken to tortillas, then serve and enjoy!

SLOW COOKER INSTRUCTIONS

  • Add olive oil, onions, garlic, chili powder, cumin, salt, adobo sauce, broth, tomatoes and chicken to the slow cooker. Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low for 8 hours.
  • Once done, remove the chicken breasts and shred. Add back to sauce in slow cooker, then serve with corn tortillas and toppings of choice. Enjoy!
