Get your Fiesta Friday on (or any day, for that matter) with this Instant Pot Fiesta Chicken! Instant Pot Fiesta Chicken is one of the easiest recipes to make! It’s simply dump, done, and eat. No need for extra prep or steps! And, in less than half an hour, you can have a hearty and delicious meal that is perfect served over rice, eaten in tortillas, or even as a nacho topping!
While my family loves a good Taco Tuesday, I have always personally loved Fiesta Fridays more. That’s where we still have that Latin flair, but in ways other than tacos! Whether it’s burritos, tamales, Fajita Rice bowls, or this IP Fiesta Chicken, I love to add Fiesta Fridays meals to our menu plan to spice up the end of the week for us! Instant Pot Fiesta Chicken is so easy to throw together, and super yummy. Even my 5 year old asks for seconds and that’s a mom win for me, for sure.
In addition to the amazing taste that my family enjoys, I can’t reinforce how easy it is. You will literally put all of your ingredients in, get your Instant Pot cooking, and then BAM! Dinner is served!
Check out how easy this Instant Pot Fiesta Chicken is to make for yourself below!
And, you can serve this whatever way your heart desires! The possibilities are really endless. We like it over rice, but if you don’t feel like cooking it, you can even throw it into tortillas or on top of chips with cheese as a nacho topping! You you can even turn this into a burrito (with rice mixed in), burrito bowl, a Fiesta Chicken salad, or make it into chicken tacos…HA, we are back to this being a possible Taco Tuesday night meal! Use your imagination and make it your own.
Now, I used the Fiesta Ranch Dip mix for the recipe, but if you want to tone it down just a bit, feel free to use just the regular Ranch Dip mix. I like the little bit of kick and flavor with the Fiesta Ranch version. If you don’t like a lot of spice, don’t worry, the Fiesta Ranch doesn’t make it so spicy that your ears will have steam coming out of them. That reminds me, if you ARE trying to make the kick a little less, you can always use just plain diced tomatoes, without the green chilies too. Fire it up or tone it down, it’s easy to do either way without messing anything up so just make it to your family’s likes.
I don’t think you can find a recipe much easier than this. Dump and done dinners are amazing and truthfully the best way to end the week. Add this recipe to your next Fiesta Friday and I am sure they will love this Instant Pot Fiesta Chicken recipe as much as my family does.
