Serves Six


The Ingredients

Tortillas

  • 2.5 cups of whole wheat flour

  • 1/2 cup of oil

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 cup warm water

  • Extra virgin olive oil for skillet

For the chicken

  • 4 large organic chicken breasts

  • 1 cup of water or bone broth

  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • 1 teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2 teaspoon chili pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder

  • Pink Himalayan sea salt, to taste

Toppings (all to taste)

  • Shredded Mexican cheese

  • 1/4 cup chopped yellow onion

  • Guacamole (homemade or fresh store bought *no sugar added)

  • 2 ripe avocados

  • 1 squeeze of 1/2 lime

  • Dash of pink salt

  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic

  • 2 tbsp diced red onion

  • Siete foods mild nacho queso


The Instructions

  • For the chicken: Place water or bone broth, chicken breasts, and all seasonings into Instant Pot. Cover and set to “Pressure Cook” for 15 minutes. Let it release steam naturally for 10 minutes (This allows for the chicken to become even more tender). If more steam needs to release, press the vent valve to release manually. Do not open the Instant Pot until the float valve drops down. Once the float valve is down, take out the chicken and shred it.

*If making homemade guacamole, do this now. Add it all the ingredients into a bowl and smash!

  • For the tortillas: Blend together the whole wheat flour, oil, and salt. Once mixed, slowly add the warm water and mix slowly until dough is smooth. Knead the dough into a ball and let it rest for 15(+) minutes.

  • Split the dough into approximately 12 smaller dough balls. On a floured surface roll each ball into 8-10 inch tortillas.

  • Heat a cast iron skillet on medium heat and spray with extra virgin olive oil. Cook tortillas in skillet on each side for approximately 45 seconds (or until it starts to bubble slightly/becomes golden).

  • For the tacos: While the tortillas are still hot, prep the toppings, fill the tacos and enjoy!
