Tired of the same old tacos? Get your “mojo” on with Instant Mojo Chicken Tacos. Mojo is a sauce with Caribbean influences consisting primarily of olive oil, peppers, garlic, paprika, cumin or coriander, and other spices. Prep for these tacos takes five minutes, starting with a combination of orange and lime juices mixed with cumin, oregano, orange peel, garlic, and olive oil. Pour the delicious sauce over the chicken in your Instant Pot and dinner is ready in 25 minutes. Serve on Mission Organics White Corn Tortillas. This is sure to bring your kids running to the table!

Add a little spice to dinner tonight! Instant Pot Chipotle Honey Chicken Tacos makes quick work of prep and cleanup. Fill your Instant Pot with boneless skinless chicken thighs smothered with chipotle peppers, adobo sauce and honey. In just ten minutes, prepare to serve your family warmed Mission Grain Free Tortillas filled with flavorful tender pork. These Grain Free Tortillas are also soy, gluten and dairy free yet full of authentic flavor. Don’t forget the cilantro, avocado, lime wedges and homemade quick-pickled onions made from apple cider vinegar and honey for toppings. 

Carnitas means little meats, made by simmering pork in oil until tender. Instant Pot Pork Carnitas uses the magic of your instant pot to tenderize and flavor pork shoulder with fresh orange and lime juices. Then a quick five minute broil in the oven crisps and browns the shredded pork, and it’s ready to wrap in a warm Mission Organic Flour Tortilla blanket. A pinch of red pepper flakes delivers added flavor and warmth. Too spicy for your little ones? Skip the red pepper flakes. 

Instant Pot Pork Belly Tacos are five-ingredient simpleness. After 80 minutes in your Instant Pot, get your cast iron pan oven-ready with butter, transfer the pork and baste with additional barbeque sauce. In just 20 minutes, slice the pork into cubes and serve on Mission Street Taco White Corn Tortillas with your favorite toppings.
