How to make taco meat

Jump to Recipe Print Recipe

Authentic TexMex Beef Tacos ranks as one of our all-time favorite dishes in the world.

I grew up in Texas and simply could not get enough tacos and it became one of the first dishes I learned to make many years ago, and I’m pretty sure these will rival any platter of TexMex Tacos you’ll find at any good TexMex restaurant.

That’s a bold statement, but make these tacos, and I’m pretty sure you’ll agree!

IS INSTANT POT TACO MEAT EASY TO FREEZE?

I’m glad you asked! Instant Pot Taco Meat is so easy to freeze. Actually, I love to make a large batch of it for just that purpose! My family loves to gobble it down in tacos, but it’s also a great way to spice up other recipes. Try it in my Instant Pot Ground Beef Enchilada Pasta or as a “taco twist” on Instant Pot Chili Mac!

CAN I DOUBLE OR HALF THE INSTANT POT TACO MEAT RECIPE?

Yes! This is one of the things I love about using the Instant Pot. Because it cooks the food at pressure, there is no need to adjust the cooking time when you change the size of the recipe. It will take a longer or shorter time for the Instant Pot to come to pressure, but this happens on its own. You don’t have to do anything different!

If you are cooking for a smaller crowd, you can easily half the recipe. If you are cooking for a large gathering or would like to freeze any leftovers, feel free to double the recipe! My Instant Pot Taco Meat recipe is great for leftovers, and it can be used in so many ways!

What my family said about the dinner?

My family thought that this recipe was one of the best taco recipes I’ve ever made. I guess adding the sauted peppers and onions really enhanced the flavor.
