Last night my family and I had Chicken Tortilla Soup using my Instant Pot. I think I’m in Love with this kitchen accessory. If you are busy woman or a busy person, I would invest in this product. This baby is fast, simple and just awesome! I chopped my veggies and prepped for all my ingredients before using my pot. Just quickly, I’m going to list all the ingredients I used and most of them I already had in my pantry/freezer.
Here’s what I used:
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1 pkg of chicken tenderloins
5 cups of chicken broth
1 can of rinsed black beans
½ cup of frozen corn
1 chopped green pepper
1 chopped yellow onion
8 oz. can or tomato sauce
1 can of rotel or 1 can of diced tomatoes
(I used the rotel because it already had the chilies added)
Spices Used on Chicken and Soup
1-2 tablespoon of cumin (added to the chicken and to the liquid ingredient when added)
2 tablespoons of salt and pepper (added to the chicken and to the liquid ingredient when added)
1 teaspoon of minced garlic (added to chopped veggie before adding the liquid)
1 tablespoon of chili powder (added to chicken and liquid ingredients when added)
1 tablespoon of taco seasonings.
Here’s what I did:
I set my Instant Pot on sauté to begin warming. I added my olive oil and my chopped peppers and onions and sautéed until tender for 3-4 minutes if medium chopped. Next I added the chicken broth, tomato sauce, the rinsed black beans, frozen corn, seasoned chicken and the remainder of the spices. I also added some crushed tortilla chips as a thickening agent. I would say a small handful, my hands are small (6 chips).
Now put your lid on and lock your lid. Change your setting on your Instant Pot to Soups and Stews and set your time to 8-10 minutes. I set my time for 10 minutes. Once the soup is done, do not open the vent, let it release its pressure by sitting for 10-15 minutes. The Instant Pot will automatically change settings to warm. When the time has passed open the vent and dinner is served.
Our dinner was ready in less than 45 minutes. OH YES! I forgot during the 10 minutes when your soup is cooking, you can set up all your toppings. (Shredded cheese, sour cream, limes, jalapenos, tortilla chips cilantro, avocados whatever your heart desires….it’s all optional)
If you try this let me know and ENJOY. Until next time, BYE!
