Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique taco dinner This had a unique flavor and we enjoyed it for the most part. Kids weren’t sure about it as much. It was tasty, flavorful, and had a bit of a kick. I made it with chicken breasts and apple juice. I really appreciated the pressure cooker recipe because I forgot to put in the crock pot in the morning. I used my instant pot and it was ready in 30 Minutes and cooked perfectly!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious twist on tacos! I used chicken breasts instead of thighs to cut down on fat and the meat is still super tender and juicy. I also didn't have beer or apple juice on hand so, since the package indicated orange juice could be used, I mixed a small packet of orange flavored Crystal Lite with 1/2 cup of water instead, which cut out a few more calories and sugar. Topped with julienned carrots fresh from the garden, cucumbers, cilantro and peanuts as suggested, these tacos are delicious! Will definitely make this again. YUM!
