Dump and Start Recipe
One of my favorite things about my Instant Pot is that many recipes can be made by just dumping all the ingredients into the pot and start the timer. There’s no babysitting the stove or stirring to do. It’s great to be able to walk away from preparing a meal and tend to other tasks that need to be done. This recipe is so incredibly easy because everything gets put into the pot and it doesn’t take any work afterward except to shred the chicken breasts. It’s that easy!

Salsa Verde Tacos
These salsa verde chicken tacos are packed full of flavor that is pleasing to the palate with zesty and tangy flavors. I serve these tacos on street taco tortillas. Street taco tortillas are a miniature version of taco tortillas so you’re able to stuff them with the delicious shredded chicken and toppings without getting extra tortilla. Every bite is more meat and less bread! I absolutely love them!
Toppings for Salsa Verde Chicken Tacos
I serve my salsa verde chicken tacos with freshly diced roma tomatoes, chopped cilantro, a slice of lime, and mozzarella cheeses. Other toppings that would be great with these tacos are diced avocados and fresh pico de gallo!
