    • Instant Pot Taco Meat
    • Author: Ashley Thomas
    • Serves: 2 pounds meat
    • Ingredients
    • 2 pounds ground beef
    • 4 tablespoons oil
    • 2 red onions, diced
    • 3 green bell peppers, diced
    • 5 garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 teaspoons chili powder
    • 2 teaspoons oregano
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon dried basil
    • ½ teaspoon turmeric
    • ½ teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon paprika
    • 1 teaspoon cumin
    • ½ teaspoon cayenne
    • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
    • Cilantro, garnish
    • Instructions
    • Add all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot except for the ground beef.
    • Press the “Sauté” button on the Instant Pot and saute for 5-6 minutes.
    • Then add the ground beef to the pot and cook until mostly brown.
    • Cover and lock the lid. Press the “Keep Warm/Cancel” button on the Instant Pot, then press the “Bean/Chili” button to begin the pressure cooking. It will automatically be set for 30 minutes. Make sure the steam valve is closed.
    • Once the meat is done, the Instant Pot will automatically switch to the “Keep Warm” mode. Allow the pressure to release naturally or use the quick release.
    • Open the pot and if the meat released a lot of liquid, press the “Saute” button to boil off any extra liquid. This may take 10-15 minutes, depending on how much liquid the meat released.
    • Garnish with cilantro and serve.
    • Notes
    • I do not add any additional water to the Instant Pot prior to cooking because meat naturally releases water. You can add water if you’d like, but you’ll need to boil it off at the end by pressing the saute button once it’s done cooking.sh
