These Instant Pot tacos are almost totally hands off, making dinnertime easy! They’re colorful, irresistibly tasty, and please everyone at the table.




  1. Make the Instant Pot Smoky Lentils and Rice recipe (takes about 40 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, chop the cherry tomatoes and lettuce. Thinly slice the red onion.
  3. Warm the tortillas*, or char them by placing a tortilla on an open gas flame on medium for a few seconds per side, flipping with tongs, until slightly blackened and warm.
  4. To assemble each taco, load the tortilla with smoky lentils, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, salsa, feta crumbles, and torn cilantro leaves. Feel free to customize with any other toppings you like!
