  • 1 tbsp lime juice

  • Turn on your instant pot and set it to Sauté on High, drizzle with olive oil.

  • Add the tomatoes and the rest of the spices with the lime and orange juices. Stir to combine them all.

  • Place the beef on top of the mixture and add the beef broth, making sure that the liquid covers at least half of the meat. Use the pressure cook lid and close the pot. Ensure the steam release handle is in the “sealed” position.
  • Select Pressure Cook on High and set for 35 minutes.
  • When the cooking time is complete, Quick Release the pressure.
  • Carefully take the meat out and shred with a fork. Let it cool.
  • Empty the inner pot, rinse, and dry it.
  • Put the inner pot back and place your Duo Crisp air fryer basket in with the dehydration rack, or a trivet if using an Air Fryer Lid.
  • In a large bowl, mix the beef, cheese, and chopped cilantro.
  • Place the filling in a corner of the tortilla and roll it.
  • Place the taquitos in the dehydration rack and use the air fry lid. Select Broil for 5 minutes.
