Whether there’s a chill in the air or it’s a warm spring evening, your Instant Pot can be the best companion in the kitchen, when preparing these delightful Chicken Pozole Tacos on Taco Tuesday.

Tacos always seem to please most people, and even more so when it’s a build-your-own kind of situation at mealtime.  Big chunks of boneless chicken breast are sauteed with a leek or an onion, and seasoned with some pantry spices for a quick-fix on taco night.  I know Tuesdays are usually that special taco day — but why hold it to just one evening?  Tacos make a great casual food that is cost effective on any day.

Hominy is one of those ingredients that many people overlook and pack some serious texture and heighten the flavor of chicken in such a delightful way.  I know hominy is used in pozole, a Mexican stew, but I thought it would be delicious in a taco too.  Don’t skimp on the condiments either because I good taco always has a few extra things that make it even more special.  So invite some friends and make this easy taco recipe tonight.
