Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

This instant pot chicken tortilla soup is always a hit in our house! I made it this weekend for Eli’s parents and we all really enjoyed it. I’m not used to cooking for more than 2 people so big instant pot meals are always my go to when I have others over! It’s quick, easy, and always hits the spot! This soup has lots of flavor in it and just a little bit of spice. Nothing crazy so if you love spicy soups (me!), add some more at the end! I like to make meals a little less spicy and then spice them up on my own. It works better when you have multiple people to do that so everyone can be happy!

Recipe Tips:

To shred the chicken at the end is the most time consuming step in this recipe. I always add it to a bowl and take forks to shred it. I know some people use stand mixers, I’ve just never had much luck with that! You can also use a hand mixer but again, never had much luck with that. I prefer doing it with just a fork but there are quicker ways to do it! And of course, don’t forget to add toppings!


The toppings are always the best part with a soup recipe, right? Well really any recipe haha. You can top this soup with tortilla strips, avocado, salsa, jalapenos, sour cream, cheese, or guacamole! I’m probably missing some but these are what we like to top this instant pot chicken tortilla soup with!
