Instant Pot Chicken Fajitas

  ip chicken fajitas

I have seen so many delicious slow cooker fajita recipes, I decided it was time to give it a whirl in my instant pot and I could not be more excited by the results.  With a family of four boys our weeknight meals need to be quick, easy and always delicious to feed my picky eaters.  These instant pot chicken fajitas hit all the marks and will be included in our recipe repertoire for many more delicious fajita nights.

If you are lucky enough to own to instant pots, these delicious  Fire Hot Instant Pot Taco Bowl pair great with your chicken fajita’s.  If not bake up some Taco Monkey Bread to pair with your fajita’s.  Both will be huge hits with your family.  

I asked my son to assist me cutting up the peppers for this dish.  The colors of the peppers just make me happy!  So has watching  my son become quite the chef and expert chopper.  I live for these moments!! 



All set and ready to cook! Set pressure to high pressure.  Cook for 15 minutes… (see recipe below)
