This week we are all about Paleo Instant Pot Shredded Taco Chicken Bowls. Easy, quick and unbelievably satisfying!

I have been all over Texas and California the past two weeks. I loved it! Everywhere I go feels like home. Full disclosure? Home is where my apron and chef knives are – which is why I travel with them! (But, real tho.)
