  • Instant Pot
  • Small Mixing Bowl
  • Serving Spoon


  • 3 pounds boneless pork sirloin roast
  • 5 cans diced green chilies (4 ounces each)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 3 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 12 flour tortillas or corn tortillas
  • favorite taco toppings (shredded lettuce, cotija cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole, salsa, red onion, cilantro, shredded cheese, etc)


  • Place roast in Instant Pot.
  • In a mixing bowl, mix together chilies, taco seasoning, and cumin. Spoon green chile mixture over pork.
  • Put your lid on the pot and put the VALVE on sealing (not venting). Press the MANUAL (or PRESSURE COOK) button and set timer for 60 minutes (or 20-25 minutes per pound of your roast).
  • When timer is finished, let pressure do a NATURAL RELEASE (it will take at least 20 minutes – I prefer to let it sit in my Instant Pot on the "keep warm" setting for a couple of hours and it will literally fall apart).
  • Shred or slice roast (it should fall apart pretty easily) and serve on top of tortillas with your favorite toppings.


  • Our general rule of thumb is to do about 20-25 minutes of cook time per pound. So if you are using a larger roast, make sure to take that into account.
