This recipe is from my friend Jolene who made it up on a whim and her kids ate it up.
As do mine.
Healthy and easy weeknight meals that are also gluten-free are always welcome in my house and this Instant Pot Chicken Soup fits the bill nicely.
This is one of those recipes you’ll go back to again and again because it’s such a crowd pleaser.
Here’s what you’ll need to make this delicious Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup (no beans!):
- 3 chicken breasts (fresh or frozen – either works)
- Taco spice mix – you can use a pre-made one or make your own with these spices you probably have in your spice cupboard
- 2 cups of corn – frozen or canned works
- 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 container of fresh salsa (2 cups) – I like Garden Fresh’s Wild Mild
Can I use regular (non-fresh) salsa?
Definitely. I’ve used both and the regular (jarred) salsa works just fine in my books. If you have regular, jarred salsa, use 2 cups for the recipe.
What if my chicken breasts are solid frozen?
No problem! Put em in and keep the time the same. It works like a charm every time.
This recipe is so easy and healthy – why didn’t you share it sooner?
I know, right?!
