If you haven’t tried out the Instant Pot pressure cooker yet, then you’ve probably been missing out on delicious recipes like this chicken tortilla soup. Prepped in five minutes and cooked in 15, it’s hard not to love a quick weeknight dinner like this.
This chicken tortilla soup is made with just a handful of ingredients. Aside from the main ingredient (chicken), you’ll find red pepper, onion, garlic, tomato paste, pickled jalapenos, chicken broth, and taco seasoning in this soup recipe.
The wonderful part about using a pressure cooker is that you can typically add all the ingredients into the pot in one simple step, just as this chicken tortilla soup recipe demonstrates. The onion and pepper are diced then added into the pot with everything else. The Instant Pot lid is sealed in place then the soup is left to cook on its own for 15 minutes.
Once the soup is done, the tender chicken is taken out and shredded before it’s mixed back into the soup. You can garnish this chicken tortilla soup with an array of your favorite toppings. We personally love diced avocado and tortilla strips with a little bit of chopped cilantro on top.
The best part is that you can easily store the leftovers of this soup in the fridge and it will taste even better the next day!
