Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Mexican
Keyword: Chicken Tacos, Ninja Foodi, Pressure Cooker, Tacos



  • 1.5 lbs Chicken breast, boneless and skinless
  • 2 tsp Ancho Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Coriander
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Ground Pepper
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 C Fire Roasted Salsa
  • 2 tbsp Cilantro, Fresh Chopped
  • Taco Fixings
  • Tortillas


  • The first step of this recipe is to set up your Ninja Foodi! Plug the Ninja Foodi in and make sure you have the pressure cooking lid.
    Next, in a small bowl combine the ancho chili powder, cumin, coriander, salt, and pepper. Make sure to stir it together to ensure it’s mixed well.
    Coat each side of your chicken in the spice mixture you just made.
    Place the chicken in the Ninja Foodi and sprinkle the garlic over the chicken.
    Pour the fire roasted salsa over the chicken. Be sure to cover the chicken with the salsa.
    Next, place the pressure lid on the Ninja Foodi with the vent closed.
    Set it to pressure, high, 13 minutes.
    When your Ninja Foodi beeps, do a quick release (carefully turn the vent to open)
    Once the pressure is released, open the Ninja Foodi and remove the chicken.
    Shred the chicken. I used two forks to shred my chicken.
    Then return the chicken to the Ninja Foodi.
    Add the cilantro and stir.
    Now you are ready to serve!
    Take a tortilla and scoop some chicken onto it, add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
    This also reheats very nicely. Be sure when you are storing leftovers to keep the juices from the pan and cover tightly.
