Instant Pot Lentil Tacos

It only takes 5-ingredients to make this nutritious (and vegan!) Instant Pot Lentil Tacos recipe. Serve it on a tortilla, in a bowl or on nachos!

Prep: 10 minutesCook: 15 minutesTotal: 25 minutes
Fat 1 Carbs 25 Protein 15
Yield 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

  • 1 cup green lentils
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 4.5-oz can green chiles
  • 1 15-oz. can tomato sauce
  • 3 tablespoons taco seasoning

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients into the Instant Pot and mix to combine.
  2. Place the lid on the Instant Pot, seal the vent, and set the Instant Pot to manual > high > and set the timer to 15 minutes*. It will take your Instant Pot around 5 to 10 minutes to build pressure before it starts to count down from 15.
  3. Once the timer goes off, open the vent to quick release and let the steam pour out. Once the Instant Pot unlocks, open the lid and stir.
  4. Let sit for around 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Serve with all of your favorite taco fixings.

Tips & Notes

  • If your lentils are still a little crunchy after 15 minutes, close the lid and cook for an additional 2 minutes at a time until they’ve reached your desired texture.
  • As the lentils sit, they will absorb more moisture and thicken.
  • Freezer meal directions: scroll up in this post to see how to turn this into a freezer meal and also read directions how to cook it from frozen in the Instant Pot!
