INSTANT POT QUINOA TACO BOWLS
Healthy doesn’t have to be boring. Anything taco flavored is not boring, in my book! I like quinoa, but without great flavors to add to it, I wouldn’t eat it. Gotta have flavor!
Quinoa is a lot like rice or tofu in the way that it takes on the flavors you add to it. Instant Pot Quinoa Taco Bowls have the healthy base of quinoa, and the tasty flavors of tacos!
Cooking quinoa in the Instant Pot is pretty fast. It only has a one minute cook time, and a 15 minute natural release.
I love that all of the ingredients cook together at the same time in the pressure cooker!
The toppings are the fun part! I love adding cheese, sour cream, jalapeño, and fresh tomatoes to my serving. Don’t forget the avocado!
With this being a dump and start recipe, you can just layer the ingredients in the pot and set the cook time and start it. So Easy!
