  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, diced
  • 2 tbsp taco seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 yellow onions, diced
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups dry quinoa
  • 1/2 each red, green and yellow pepper, finely diced
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro


  • Add all ingredients except for bell peppers, cheese, avocado, plum tomatoes and cilantro to Instant Pot in the order written, making sure to add quinoa last.
  • Set to manual and pressure cook on high for 3 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to pre-heat and then the 3 minutes to cook. When complete, press cancel and do a quick release of the steam, waiting until the pressure gauge drops back down and the lid is safe to open.
