If you love using your Instant Pot, you’re going to love these Instant Pot Mexican Chicken and Black Bean Taquitos. Simple, delicious and hearty!

Instant Pot Mexican Chicken and Black Bean Taquitos

I can’t tell you how many times my Instant Pot has saved the day. Literally. My kids are starving and I don’t have dinner plans…not that this happens all that often, but sometimes, it does. And on those nights, my Instant Pot comes to the rescue each and every time.

One of our favorite meals to make in our Instant Pot is these Instant Pot Mexican Chicken and Black Bean Taquitos. It may be a mouthful to say, but it’s 100% worth it!

Not only are they super simple (seriously, the Instant Pot does all the work!) but they are hearty and filling as well. My family literally cheers when they hear that this recipe is what’s for dinner. They love it that much!

What I love about this simple Instant Pot recipe is that I can doctor it up at the end to suit my taste buds. No matter if you like your taquitos spicy or not, you can always add some hot sauce and jalapenos as your topping choices at the end and separate from everyone else.

What are you waiting for? Make this for your family dinner tonight!
