Southwestern Tortilla Soup

Shredded chicken, your favorite Mexican ingredients like black beans, corn, green chiles, salsa, and warming spices like cumin and chili powder are all present in the Instant Pot tortilla soup. You can easily add your preferred toppings to this Southwest Chicken Tortilla Soup to create a warm and comfortable bowl. If you don’t have an instant pot, use the directions for the stovetop technique.

Why I adore this tortilla soup from the instant pot

Dinnertime for me means a bowl of soup. But I don’t want a simple bowl of broth and noodles when I’m eating soup. I enjoy a hot bowl of comforting soup to keep me warm and comfy.

All of your favorite Mexican ingredients, such as corn, black beans, and a ton of succulent chicken, are present in plenty in this southwest chicken tortilla soup. What the doctor ordered, exactly.

This soup is not only tasty, but it also cooks in your pressure cooker or instant pot in under 30 minutes. For a weekday supper, there is no better comfort food than this!

Ingredients required for soup
Use your preferred mild, unflavored oil instead of olive oil.
Aromatics – The soup’s flavor and scent are greatly enhanced by the addition of onion and garlic.
Diced chiles – A tiny can of diced chiles give a dish a classic taste and a hint of fire. Depending on your desire, look for chilies in mild, medium, or hot varieties.
Tomatoes that have been fire roasted have a great smoky flavor.
Use your preferred homemade or canned salsa. If you want a soup with fewer chunks, you can alternatively substitute taco or enchilada sauce.

Chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper are used as seasonings.
Black beans – Black beans have a delicious flavor and are high in protein. Pinto beans are a simple substitution if you want.
Use low-sodium chicken broth and, if necessary, increase the salt content to match the flavor.
Using chicken is simple when using boneless, skinless breasts, but you can also use thighs or even leftover rotisserie chicken.
Corn: I like how fresh frozen corn tastes, but you could also use canned, drained corn.
