Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup – An Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe

Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup is my new favorite way to use my pressure cooker.

I have a serious love for Chicken + Soup. Mom’s Creamy Chicken Soup is my fave soup of all time, and my Chicken Pot Pie Soup, Creamy White Chicken Chili with Cream Cheese, and White Wine Chicken Stew are three of my go-to’s when I’m craving a pot of goodness. Chicken Tortilla Soup has always been a staple in our house, so this easy chicken tortilla soup recipe is a great addition. There’s just something about the spice from the flavors and the crunch from the fried tortillas that sends me into food heaven. I can’t get enough! Since I’ve been playing around with how to make all my favorites in a pressure cooker, it was only a matter of time before I tried Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup. SUCCESS!

This Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup is so simple to make! I love this Easy Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe and you will too!

Is the Instant Pot Safe? Will it explode??

YES! The new Instant Pot is not like pressure cookers from before. It has 10 safety precautions in place and is easy to use. Don’t be intimidated by it! It’s such an easy way to make your favorite recipes, especially soups, stews, and chilis (and this instant pot chicken tortilla soup, obviously).

The weather may be starting to warm up little by little, but there’s still plenty of soup season left to enjoy. We had SNOW this weekend!! Let’s not wish Spring here too soon…let’s keep enjoying the warm fires and warm meals before we are all having to cool off any way possible this Summer. I’m so much more the person that wants to wear layers than wear a swimsuit. I dread the Summer all year long.

Ingredients

For the soup:

  • 6 boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter unsalted
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 can Fire-roasted Rotel tomatoes or regular Rotel Tomatoes *See note
  • 10.75 ounces beef broth
  • 10.75 ounces chicken broth
  • cups water
  • cups tomato juice
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon bottled steak sauce
  • 1 can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 can corn
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

To Serve:

  • Squeeze of fresh lime juice
  • Tortilla chips or strips
  • Fresh cilantro chopped

Garnishes:

  • Avocado slices
  • Sour Cream
  • Cojita cheese crumbled
  • Shredded Mexican or Cheddar cheese
  • Extra tortilla chips

Instructions

For the Soup:

  1. Set the Instant Pot to Sauté. After 1 minute, add the diced onion and cook until the onion has softened and is translucent. Add the minced garlic and set the Instant Pot to Keep Warm/Cancel.
  2. Set the chicken thighs on top of the onion/garlic mixture and add all the remaining soup ingredients on top of the chicken.
  3. Set the Instant Pot to SOUP and adjust the timer to 10 minutes with a 10-minute natural release. After 10 minutes of natural release, place a clean dishcloth over the valve and turn the valve to quick release. When the red button (float valve) goes down, the lid is safe to open.
  4. Use tongs to transfer the meat to a cutting board and cut the chicken into 1-inch chunks (or use two forks to shred the chicken).
  5. Add the chicken back to the soup and serve.

To serve:

  1. Add crushed tortilla chips (or strips) to each soup bowl and ladle the soup on top. Add a squeeze of lime and fresh cilantro.  

  2. Serve with your other favorite garnishes.

To make the Tortilla Strips:

  1. Stack 3 corn tortillas and cut in half. Slice the halved tortillas crosswise into ¼" strips. Heat a skillet over medium heat until hot and add 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil. Heat the oil until it shimmers and add the tortilla strips. Stir often until the strips are golden and crispy. Transfer the strips to a paper towel-lined plate to dry. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Set aside until the soup is ready to serve.
