Instant Pot Taco Meat (Taco Salad Jars!)
This Instant Pot Taco Meat is the perfect filling for taco salad jars - you can make it with ground beef, chicken or turkey and it all comes together with mostly simple ingredients from your pantry too!
Servings: 4 jars
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 lb ground beef or turkey
- 2 tbsp taco seasoning (homemade or store-bought)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 yellow onion, diced
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 jar salsa
- 1 cup corn
- 1 can black beans
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes, sliced in half
- 1 head romaine lettuce
- 1 cup tortilla chips
Add olive oil, onions, garlic, salt, ground meat, taco seasoning and water to Instant Pot and mix around breaking up meat. Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. Instant Pot will take about 10-15 min to preheat then the 3 min to pressure cook.
Do a quick release of the pressure and open the lid when safe to do so. Drain any excess liquid that remains the meat.
In 4 1L sized mason jars, layer in salsa, taco meat, corn, black beans, cherry tomatoes and lettuce in that order, topping with chips if desired or packing chips in a separate plastic bag so they remain fresh. Jars will keep in fridge up to 5 days.
