Instant Pot Chili Cilantro Lime Shredded Chicken

Tonight was nacho night, I didn’t feel like going out to the store to get anything pre-packaged to season my meat, so I went on a search in my kitchen to see what I had. I saw the limes and knew I had cilantro. So I thought I would create something that turned out delicious!

I made Instant Pot Chili Cilantro Lime Shredded Chicken with only what I had in the kitchen, I didn’t have to go out, which made me super happy. I loathe having to go out once I am already in. But the best part is that it made the most amazing Nachos.

I also made fresh Pico De Gallo to top my Instant Pot Chili Cilantro Lime Shredded Chicken Nachos and man, oh man it was amazing. I made enough for leftovers, so tomorrow, I will probably eat just the meat and some pico together, I’m going back on keto, wich is rough, but this will make it much better!
