Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Set the Instant Pot to the Sauté function and add in the oil. Once it is hot, add onions and garlic. Sauté until onions are soft and garlic is quite fragrant, 3-4 minutes.
  2. Transfer to a high speed blender pitcher and add the rest of the ingredients (except for the cinnamon stick & toppings!) Blend on medium high until creamy throughout.
  3. Add chicken thighs to the Instant Pot. Pour mole mixture all over the chicken and add the cinnamon stick. Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook (manual) on high. Set the time to 15 minutes.
  4. Once they are done, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. Manually let pressure out, covering the steam with a kitchen towel. Using two forks, shred and break apart the chicken and mix well into the sauce. Remove the cinnamon stick and discard.
  5. Be sure to taste and adjust the seasoning levels. You will absolutely need to add more salt to your taste preferences!
  6. Add chicken mole to butter lettuce and top off with desired toppings. Serve warm.
