  • 3 lbs pork butt
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 7 oz can chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced or crushed
  • Tortillas soft shell, flour tortillas


  1. Place pork butt in Instant Pot, add broth, cinnamon, cumin, chipotle peppers, salt and pepper. Ensure that release valve is set to sealing, select manual pressure, high setting, and program for 90 minutes. Allow for natural release at end of cycle.

  2. Trim fat from meat (if any) and use slotted spoon to remove whole chipotle peppers and reserve peppers. Use two table forks to shred meet. Add garlic and stir shredded meat thoroughly. Turn Instant Pot to "Keep Warm" function, and allow shredded meat to reabsorb the juices for a minimum of 15 minutes, giving it a stir every couple of minutes.

  3. Use slotted spoon to transfer shredded meet to tortillas. Garnish with reserved chipotle peppers, diced, if desired. Serve with dollops of sour cream and guacamole.
