We loved this! So easy to make. I I did 2 things differently, I added the chicken stock (before adding everything else) to deglaze the pot and I used Hatch Chiles in place of the Anaheim Chiles because that's what I had. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe! Will be making this again. Read More

This was super flavorful, but a word to the wise, don't sub Serranos for Anaheim..I got carried away with all the peppers and fire bombed my poor 11 yr old twin's taste buds and those kids can generally take the heat! Read More

The recipe is fantastic, but I way overdid the spiciness. Next time I’ll leave out the canned jalapeños and use mild Rotel in place of the diced tomatoes and green chilies. (You can always up the spiciness after it’s cooked, but you can’t reverse it!). The flavor was outstanding, though! Read More

This recipe is so delicious!!! I have to say, when you pull it out of the insta pot it doesn’t look super appetizing. But it has sooooo much flavor. Read More

Made this exactly according to the recipe except for omitting the Larry s salt because I didn t have any. I substituted a tsp of taco seasoning and it turned out great! Very flavorful. Fair warning though it is quite spicy. I love spicy food but this may be too much for some. A little sour cream on top and it was delicious and even better the next day. Read More

This was delicious. The flavor of this recipe was great. I did make some minor modifications and additions. First, I used two 4oz cans of chili peppers because I didn’t find a 7oz can. I also added 4 Serrano peppers to give it a little kick. I like spicy foods. Finally, I shortened the cook time at pressure to 6 minutes (w/ quick release) based on other recommendations and the rice (Jasmine) turned out great. It was not mush as others noted with the longer cook times. Everything else was done as written. When it was done, I topped each serving with a little chopped green onion and avocado. The final product was absolutely delicious. In this dish, I’m not sure the avocado added anything. The rest of the flavors were so good, they masked the avocado. I’m already looking forward to making this again. Read More
