Optional, to serve

  • 6 tortillas (warmed)
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro
  • 6 teaspoon salsa


  • Slice the chicken, peppers and onions. Add these to the Instant Pot.
  •  Add all seasoning to the Instant Pot, and stir to coat the ingredients evenly.
  • Lastly, add the chicken stock or water, and give the dish a stir. Seal the lid on to the Instant Pot, and cook using the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK setting for 4 minutes. When the timer is up, turn the valve to quickly release the pressure from the pot.
