This recipe was always a favorite in our house but, made in the Instant Pot, this is even tastier and quicker to the table! It does use my Homemade Burrito Mix of Spices - its great to have on hand and versatile enough to use in tacos, fajitas, etc. You've got to give this recipe a try! It's was a HIT with my husband. Enjoy! Diane
