Shredded Beef Tacos

Happy almost Cinco de Mayo. There is no better way to celebrate than enjoying these Shredded Beef Tacos. This recipe makes 8-10 tacos, so it’s just enough for your fiesta!

You first start out by seasoning the beef in a mixing bowl. Then you place the beef in the Instant Pot on the sauté setting until the beef browns. Once the beef is browned you add the Hatch Organic Red Enchilada Sauce and pressure cook for about 30 minutes. Then you let pressure release naturally for 20 minutes. Once the pressure is released you take the beef out and shred it with two forks. You serve these tacos on a warm tortilla and all the mixtures you like on tacos. I personally like these tacos with lettuce, cheese, avocado, and tomatoes.
