Instructions
  1. Turn on your instant pot and set it to Sauté on High, drizzle with olive oil.
  2. While you wait for the oil to heat up, season your meat with salt, black pepper and smoked paprika.
  3. Place the meat inside the inner pot. Do not move it for a couple of minutes until well-seared and browned (if the meat sticks to the inner pot, let it sit for a while longer -- the meat will naturally release from the surface of the pot when ready). Sear beef on all sides.
  4. Using tongs take the meat out of the pot and set aside. Add in the chopped onions, minced garlic and sauté until translucent.
  5. Add the tomatoes and the rest of the spices with the lime and orange juices. Stir to combine them all.
  6. Select Cancel.
  7. Place the beef on top of the mixture and add the beef broth, making sure that the liquid covers at least half of the meat. Use the pressure cook lid and close the pot. Ensure the steam release handle is in the “sealed” position.
  8. Select Pressure Cook on High and set for 35 minutes.
  9. When the cooking time is complete, Quick Release the pressure.
  10. Carefully take the meat out and shred with a fork. Let it cool.
  11. Empty the inner pot, rinse, and dry it.
  12. Put the inner pot back and place your Duo Crisp air fryer basket in with the dehydration rack, or a trivet if using an Air Fryer Lid.
  13. In a large bowl, mix the beef, cheese, and chopped cilantro.
  14. Place the filling in a corner of the tortilla and roll it.
  15. Place the taquitos in the dehydration rack and use the air fry lid. Select Broil for 5 minutes.
  16. Use the tongs to take the taquitos out of the basket and enjoy.

    Idk if it was an operator error or what but the ground chuck was not good. Tough, impossible to shred. Everything seemed to go wrong during the pressure cooking because it looked and smelled delicious prior to me setting the pressure cooker to 35 mins. Would love to try again but man, was a I frustrated

    When using beef brisket for this recipe, do you cut the meat into smaller chunks prior to saute, or keep meat as a whole 2lb. piece of meat?

    The image is not the recipe. There is corn in the mix, in the image. I see this often, with many suppliers of cooking appliances. Same with the Cosori Air Fryer. I still bought it but it’s irritating that they all do that.
