I absolutely love my instant pot. I am finding new ways of using it all the time. Recently I cooked chicken fajitas in my instant pot. They were so delish! Watch my video for step by step instructions. If you have an instant pot, please comment down below what your favorite things to cook in it are.
Chicken Fajita Recipe
3 chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1 1/2 bell peppers and 1 onion cut up
I like to use 2 to 3 different colors of peppers. (You can also buy frozen peppers & onions that are ready to use.)
1 pack of Frontera Taco Sauce
1/4 cup of water
Turn your instant pot on saute and immediately pour in the Frontera taco sauce. Add peppers & onions. Saute for 4 to 6 minutes depending on if peppers & onions are frozen or not.
Take the cooked peppers & onions and place in a bowl with lid.
Add chicken to the instant pot and add 1/4 cup of water.
Turn instant pot off and then turn on manual and set for 5 minutes. Place lid on and make sure your venting knob is on sealing.
It will take a few minutes for the instant pot to build pressure. Once it does then your timer will come on and start counting down.
After 5 minutes allow chicken to sit for 1 minute and then turn the knob to venting and allow all the steam to escape.
Mix chicken, peppers, and onions together.
Serve on tortillas or a large romaine lettuce leaf.
plain Greek yogurt or sour cream
*If you want to double your recipe then add a whole seasoning pack of Frontera Taco seasoning to your chicken.

Thank you for posting this I was hoping that someone else in the world thought to use the Rick Bayless sauce with the instapot.
You are most welcome mleigh10352. I love his sauces. They are so rich and full of flavor! 🙂
The Ginger Optimist, if you want a hot sauce suggestion for use with a dish like this, I am sure that any I have reviewed could work well. Please read through my blog and see if any of the hot sauces I have blogged about may possibly work well with any of the recipes you mention.
