I had this dish at a local Mexican restaurant when celebrating a friend's birthday. I fell in love with the spicy, smoky flavor from the tequila and decided to try Instant Pot salsa chicken at home. Boy, was it a success! It's also great stuffed into flour tortillas or for making nachos. —Trisha Kruse, Eagle, Idaho

Optional: Avocado slices, chopped fresh cilantro and lime wedges
Sprinkle taco seasoning over chicken breasts; place in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Combine salsa and tequila; pour over chicken. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 6 minutes.
Quick-release pressure. A thermometer inserted in chicken should read at least 165°.
Remove chicken. When cool enough to handle, shred meat with 2 forks; return to pressure cooker. Serve with rice and desired toppings.
