Y’all know that I am a straight up taco fanatic.

I was just talking to my husband the other day about how I could literally eat Mexican food 7 days a week and not get tired of it. Unfortunately, he’s not on the same page.

He likes Mexican food just fine, but he’ll usually choose Italian or Asian food over Mexican. We’re probably destined for divorce. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 


Anyway, our whole family loves these Instant Pot chicken tacos. It’s such an easy Instant Pot recipe.
