Instant Pot Taco Meat

Instant Pot Taco Meat by Ashley of


  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 4 tablespoons oil
  • 2 red onions, diced
  • 3 green bell peppers, diced
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon turmeric
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne
  • ½ teaspoon chipotle powder
  • Cilantro, garnish


  1. Add all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot except for the ground beef.
  2. Press the “sauté” button and stir-fry for 5-6 minutes.
  3. Then add the ground beef to the pot and cook until mostly brown.
  4. Secure the lid, close the pressure valve and cook for 10 minutes at high pressure.
  5. Once the meat is done, allow the pressure to release naturally (or you can quick release).
  6. Open the lid, and if the meat released any liquid then press the sauté button to boil it off. This may take 10 minutes, depending on how much liquid the meat released.
  7. Garnish with cilantro and serve.


I do not add any additional water to the Instant Pot prior to cooking because meat naturally releases water. You can add water if you’d like, but you’ll need to boil it off at the end by pressing the saute button once it’s done cooking.
