You’ve probably heard of theInstant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.
Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!
IN THIS VIDEO:
I show you how to make the easiest authentic mexican shredded tacos at home! Just because we’re stuck inside, that does not mean we have to sacrifice flavor. With this simple recipe you’ll be able to enjoy delicious tacos right in the comfort of your own home!
5-6 chicken thighs
4-5 bay leaves
1 white onion
5 cloves of garlic
1/2 green bell pepper
4 chile guajillos
3 roma tomatoes
1 tsp cumin
1-2 TBSP oil of choice
Salt and pepper to taste
Instant corn masa. I used Masa Brosa in this video because they were out Maseca that day. But preferably Maseca if you can find it. Just follow the instructions on the back. You can usually find it at most grocery stores in the international foods aisle.
Bring a pot of water to a boil. We want to season season the chicken a bit. Add chicken thighs to boiling water. Crunch up the bay leaves and add them in. Add 1/2 the onion. Add the bell pepper. Add 2 cloves of garlic. Add salt and pepper.
Once chicken is done take it out. Let it cool and shred and set aside.
For the sauce take a smaller pot of water and rehydrate your dried Chile guajillos. Add Chile de árbol for more spice if you’d love. This should only take 3-4 minutes. Once they’re rehydrated take them out, let them cool, cut in half and remove the seeds.
To a blender add there other 1/2 of the onion. Add the 3 tomatoes, Chile guajillos, 3 cloves of garlic, salt, pepper, and some of the water from the chicken pot. Add enough just to cover the ingredients and blend.
Once blended pass through a strainer to leave the chunky bits out. ONLY IF YOU WANT TO. Sheesh lol I’ve seen some of y’all in the comments 😂
Heat up another pot on medium heat. Add oil and sauce. Bring to a simmer and add in your shredded chicken. Let simmer for about 20 minutes stirring occasionally. After that it’s ready to serve.
make your own tortillas or buy them whatever your preference. Serve with white or Spanish rice if you’d love too. do whatever you want 😂
Thank you for watching.
