Sweet Chipotle Adobo Pork Tacos

Tacos are one of my most favorite foods, so I am constantly attempting new ways to reinvent the taco…and I am definitely not an inventor. Let’s be honest, none of my taco recipes are world-changing, but they are extremely tasty!

Individuals who create fusion foods such as the ramen burger, or the sushi burrito have changed the food world. I’m just on the hunt for food that makes my taste buds sing and keeps my kiddos from complaining.

AND…my boys did not complain about these tacos. In fact, even though I made enough for 12 people, the leftovers did not last long at all. The flavors are impactful being sweet and spicy; but not too spicy, for those who can’t handle a lot of heat.

  • instapot


  • 2 lb pork tenderloin or pork roast fat trimmed
  • 20 oz Coca Cola
  • 7 oz Chipotle Chilis in Adobo Sauce
  • 4 Tbsp brown sugar


  • In the Instapot, add the pork, Coca Cola, and Chipotle Chilis in Adobo Sauce. Seal the lid and on the manual setting, pressure cook for 3 hours. If your Instapot is like mine, it will only allow a maximum of 2 hours on the manual setting. To combat this just do 2 sessions of cooking on the manual setting, the first one for 2 hours and the second one for 1 hour. Do not release the pressure in between each cooking period.
  • Once the 3 hours are up, let the Instapot releases the pressure naturally, don't rapid release the pressure.
  • When the pressure has been completely released, take the pork out and shred it on a cutting board. Strain the juices and chilis into a bowl or liquid measuring cup. You will want the liquid, but not the leftover chunks.
  • Add the pulled pork and the liquid back into the Instapot. Add in the brown sugar and stir to combine. Let warm thoroughly for another 15-20 minutes on the warm setting. Serving immediately with favorite taco toppings.

These tacos are especially tasty with my Mango Salsa. Go here for that recipe. We like to eat these street taco style. There is just something about small bites that make eating a little more fun. This pork is tasty on nachos or inside burritos as well. Hope y’all are having an amazing week.
