Pressure Cooking Recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Pressure cooking recipes for Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is next Monday, so I thought it was the perfect time to feature the delicious Mexican pressure cooker recipes I’ve posted to help you get your fiesta off to a quick start.

Pressure Cooking Recipes for Cinco De Mayo


Easy Chile Colorado Smothered Burritos – Fork tender chunks of spicy beef wrapped in a flour tortilla, covered with enchilada sauce and cheese then broiled until the cheese is melted and gooey and starting to bubble and brown.


Pork Carnitas – Cubed pork cooked in orange juice, with onion, garlic, jalapenos, and spices until its fork tender and mildly spicy with a fresh citrus flavor, and ready to eat in about an hour.


Pork Carnitas Burrito Bowls – A burrito served in a bowl over rice without the tortilla and topped with your favorite burrito toppings.


My son was talking about how much he loves my Pork and Hominy Stew just last night. Pork shoulder cooked in a spicy broth until it’s fork tender, then it’s shredded and combine with hominy to make a hearty stew


Cilantro Lime Rice – my pressure cooker version of Skinny Taste’s popular copycat recipe for Chipolte’s Cilantro Lime Rice. The lime and cilantro give this rice a bright, fresh flavor, perfect as a side dish with your favorite Mexican meal, or as the base of a burrito bowl the way they serve it at Chipolte’s.

Quick and Easy Spanish Rice – the rice only takes four minutes to cook in the pressure cooker, so it’s a great side dish for almost anything you’re cooking this year for Cinco de Mayo.


Chicken Tomatillo Soup with Hominy – Tomatillos add a touch of tartness and a pretty green color to a mild, spicy chicken soup with hominy. Ready to eat in minutes, top it with your favorite enchilada toppings. 

Those are some of my favorites. I’d love to hear what your favorite Mexican food is.
