- 1½ cups water
- 1½ cups tomato juice
- 1 teaspoon chili powder

- Juice from ½ lime

- Tortilla chips or strips
- Fresh cilantro chopped
- Avocado slices

For the Soup:
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 tomatoes and minced garlic and set the Instant Pot to Keep Warm/Cancel.
Set the chicken thighs on top of the onion/garlic mixture and add all the remaining soup ingredients on top of the chicken.
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.
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).
Add the chicken back to the soup and serve.
