  • 4 cans (7 ounces each) whole green chiles, undrained
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 boneless beef chuck roast (4 pounds)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 14 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Optional toppings: Shredded cheddar cheese, salsa, sour cream, sliced ripe olives


  1. Drain chiles, reserving liquid. Coarsely chop chiles; place in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Add tomatoes, onion and reserved drained liquid. Cut roast in half. Combine garlic, salt, cumin and cayenne; rub over roast. Place in pressure cooker. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 80 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes; quick-release any remaining pressure. A thermometer inserted in beef should read at least 165°.
  2. Remove roast; shred with 2 forks. Return to pressure cooker; heat through. Using a slotted spoon, serve in tortillas with toppings as desired.
