KETO/AIP Beef Lingua Tongue Tacos Instant Pot

Tacos de Lengua, or Tongue Tacos are a classic Mexican preparation for beef tongue. The Instant Pot is a major timesaver here. Our version is Keto so no tortillas are used, just lettuce leaves. If you aren’t AIP, I would go ahead and add some jalapeño to spice things up a bit. Or better yet add jalapeño or Chipotle powder to the the pot before cooking, then some more diced jalapeño as garnish. Good luck!
