When I first tried to make those Instant Pot Beef Burritos, it took me about 4 tries to finally get it right. However, what’s great about those 3 failed attempts is that I actually learned from my mistakes! ME! I can do that. Learn from my mistakes… what a profound conscious discovery…
Anywho. What I’m trying to get to is that this recipe took only 1 try to get it right. Woohooo! You don’t even know what that means to a person that tries to develop recipes, and how it affects (positively or negatively) their groceries-budget.
Unlike my beef burritos, for this recipe I used lean ground turkey, and kept the rest of the recipe relatively the same.
HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT BURRITO BOWLS
- We will first sauté our onions and garlic inside the Instant Pot before sprinkling it all with my Homemade Fajitas Seasoning.
- We’re then going to add in some chicken broth, ground turkey, corn, beans, salsa, and rice.
- Next, we will set the pressure manually on HIGH for 7 minutes.
- When done, you will want to stir everything together and then transfer the prepared burrito filling inside your bowls.
- Finally, top the burrito bowls with shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and avocados.
- Dig in.
