Instant Pot Hawaiian Chicken Tacos with Jalapeño Ranch Slaw
Can we just establish that my idea of a good dinner is one that starts with INSTANT POT and ends with juicy pineapple and spiced chicken crisped under the broiler, tucked into tortillas, and rolled up with creamy jalapeño ranch slaw?
These tacos are springy, delicious, and just plain happy. Er, maybe it’s me that’s happy? And probably because throwing some pantry ingredients together, pressing start on the Instant Pot, taking my crew for a walk, and coming home to dinner almost done is almost the same as winning a million dollars. Almost.
Instant Pot lovers, where you at?
Instant Pot Hawaiian Chicken! Let’s Do This.
Okay, here’s everything nice and pretty in the IP.
And here’s the less-pretty situation after cooking.
And here’s the pretty-again end result after popping the whole thing under the broiler for a bit (borrowing that one from these crockpot carnitas).
Jalapeño Ranch? Won’t take you two seconds.
Everything goes in the food processor or blender till it’s smooth.
Toss that creamy goodness with cabbage, stuff it all into tortillas (these are La Tortilla Factory corn and flour blend tortillas – my not authentic but totally delicious favorites), drizzle with a little more sauce because SAUCE, and live your best spring life.
Juicy, sweet, and just a little bit spicy… that would be a yes, yes, and yes.
These Hawaiian chicken tacos would go great with some pitcher-style margaritas, plus a lil bowl of this 2 minute avocado dip (like guac but not guac) as an appetizer while you wait for those tacos to finish.
Chips and dip, drinks, and super fresh springy tacos… my favorite signs of warmer days ahead. ?
