Now, turn the instant pot off and stir in paprika, pepper flakes, chili powder, cumin, and coriander. Then, add in coconut aminos and crushed tomatoes and stir to deglaze the bottom of the pan.

Now, Attach the lid to the instant pot, close the steam valve and select MANUAL  for 10 minutes. When the time is up, Open the steam valve and let the pressure out. Remove the lid, taste the taco meat and season with more salt and pepper to taste.

Serve inside of tortillas, lettuce cups or over a salad with freshly chopped cilantro leaves, jalapeño slices, avocado slices and fresh lime juice.
