Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

My wife is due to deliver our third child any day now. We also have a 3-year-old and a 1 1/2-year-old. Yeah, we’ve got our hands full in the best way. So we’re currently in a season of taking meals that we love and making them as easy as possible to make. That’s what happened here with this Instant Pot chicken tortilla soup.

We previously posted a slow cooker version of this idea, but let’s be honest… Our Instant Pot is getting all of our attention these days. So I applied two “cheats” (store-bought rotisserie chicken and stock), dumped it all in the pot, and it actually blew my mind! Sorry slow cooker, you just lost again.

The Process

Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup | The Foodie Eats

Add all ingredients (except chicken) to pot. I also like to include the juice in the bottom of the rotisserie chicken tray. Lock lid and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

Meanwhile – remove all chicken meat from bones. Reserve the carcass (bones and skin) to make broth later.

Shred the chicken into bite-size pieces.

Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. Then remove lid.

Add the shredded chicken to the pot and mix well.

Allow the chicken to sit in the soup for a few minutes (the longer the better) to absorb the flavor. Serve topped with any combination of tortilla chips, avocado, cheese, and cilantro.

 

And This is the Amazing Result…

Ingredients

  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • 15 oz. whole kernel canned corn drained
  • 30 oz. canned black beans drained
  • 19 oz. red enchilada sauce
  • 10.5 oz Rotel (Mexican style)
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1 green bell pepper diced
  • 2 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp. lime juice
  • 5 lb. rotisserie chicken cooked

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients (except chicken) to pot. I also like to include the juice in the bottom of the rotisserie chicken tray. Lock lid and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

  2. Meanwhile – remove all chicken meat from bones. Reserve the carcass (bones and skin) to make broth later. Shred the chicken into bite-size pieces.

  3. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. Then remove lid. Add the shredded chicken to the pot and mix well. Allow the chicken to sit in the soup for a few minutes (the longer the better) to absorb the flavor. 

  4. Serve topped with any combination of tortilla chips, avocado, cheese, and cilantro.

Recipe Notes

The sodium appears to be really high in this recipe. However, most of that is due to the highly seasoned skin and fat of a store-bought rotisserie chicken, which you do not add to the soup. So the actual sodium and fat content is much lower than listed. Recipe cards cannot be modified and are merely approximations anyways.

Pressure Cooker Potato Soup

It’s no secret that I LOVE soup. But what you might not know is that I really love potato soup! I mean, a loaded baked potato is one of the greatest inventions ever. So, when in soup form, it takes me to my happy place. Well, this pressure cooker potato soup does just that, with an easy process that is pretty much foolproof.

 

What’s special about this recipe?

There are a few things that I’d say set this pressure cooker potato soup apart from most. First and foremost… it’s gluten-free – which means my wife can actually eat it! That’s one of my biggest goals in life – creating delicious gluten-free recipes so that she can enjoy the food we all love. Secondly, this soup is very hearty and has a chowder-like texture with noticeable chunks of potato. I’m not the biggest fan of puréed potato soups.

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Kale

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Kale | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Kale

This rich, comforting pressure cooker pumpkin soup is full of hearty whole-food ingredients with all the flavors of Fall. It truly is a meal in one bowl, without having a one-note flavor profile. We are also big fans of using mushrooms to make things “meatier”.

 

Can I Substitute With Low-Fat Ingredients?

You have a few options to help lower the fat and calorie count. You could substitute ground turkey seasoned with fennel seeds and sage for the sausage. And you can use 2% milk, or even a dairy-free milk for the whole milk. However, the flavor will not be as rich and comforting. Personally, I believe this is a recipe where splurging on higher-calorie ingredients is totally worth it!

 

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Kale | The Foodie Eats

 

Why Sherry Wine Vinegar?

While we’re talking substitutions, you may notice that the recipe card says you can sub red wine vinegar for sherry wine vinegar. So why do I use sherry wine vinegar in this pressure cooker pumpkin soup in the first place? I first heard, then believed for myself, that sherry wine and mushrooms are great friends in a pan. So I went out and bought a bottle of sherry, used it twice, then threw out the rest because it expired.

So the next time I wanted to use it, I opted for sherry wine vinegar instead. And while it’s definitely not the same thing, it does accomplish the same thing – adding a specific flavor using acidity. The acid is the point, while the flavor can be changed. That’s why any vinegar will work, but I would opt for something more neutral if subbing it out.

 

The Process

Pressure Cooker Pumpkin Soup with Sausage and Kale | The Foodie Eats

Using sauté setting – add oil to cooker.

Add mushrooms, salt, and pepper. Cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Instant Pot Curry with Chickpeas, Tomatoes & Spinach

First, let me begin by saying that I am fully aware that this is not an authentic preparation of curry. I mean, I live in Florida, with roots from Alabama and the Carolinas. But, this recipe is a quick, flavorful, Americanized Instant Pot curry. And it’s been a big hit every time I’ve served it! Try it with this Coconut-Herb Rice.

I’ve eaten a lot of “quick and easy” curries before. And, quite frankly, they often lack the most important ingredient in ANY food: Flavor! Well, let me assure you that this version delivers. I’ve taken this dish to multiple potlucks. And surprisingly, it has been the big hit! (Possibly because no one knew it was a plant-based recipe…? Lol.)

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Instant Pot Turkey Soup

With Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach

I’m not sure what’s gotten into me lately, but I am currently mildly obsessed with ground turkey. I find myself actively looking for new ways to use it. That’s pretty much how this recipe was born. I used to make this soup (that I love and should post a recipe for) with sausage, kale and pumpkin. Well, one day last week, I decided to change it a few ways: cook it in my Instant Pot and make it a little healthier. This Instant Pot turkey soup with mushrooms, sweet potatoes, and spinach is the result!

 

Wow, sweet potatoes are versatile!

Sweet potatoes are kinda magical. They’re always in season and can be used in more ways than just about any other vegetable. I’ve always heard that they are great used as a thickener of sauces, but I’ve never tried it myself. That’s kinda how we use them in this Instant Pot turkey soup. We cook them until they’re very soft, then break them up. It took an otherwise broth-y soup and gave it substantial body!

The Process

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Using sauté setting – add 1 tablespoon olive oil and mushrooms. DO NOT add any salt at this point (something you’ll rarely hear me say, since you should season as you go). We want to brown the mushrooms and if we add salt now they will sweat. (This picture is to show you how they start and finish, however they should be cut differently.)

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add thyme leaves and cook them for a few minutes before touching them, allowing them begin to caramelize slightly. Once they have browned slightly on all sides, hit them with a dash of salt and remove right away. Set aside.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add 1 tablespoon olive oil to pot, along with onions and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cook for about 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and translucent.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add fennel seeds and sage. Mix well and allow to toast for a a minute or two, stirring frequently. You want them to become fragrant and begin to release their oils (they’ve been sitting in a jar for who knows how long).

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Add turkey to pot, season with salt and pepper, and break up as much as possible. Then leave it be for a few minutes to begin the browning process. Stir occasionally.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Once turkey is fully broken up and nearly fully cooked, add garlic, mix well, and cook for another minute or two.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Return mushrooms to pot, along with chicken broth and sweet potatoes. Lock lid and cook for 4 minutes at high pressure.

 

Instant Pot Turkey Soup with Mushrooms, Sweet Potatoes & Spinach | The Foodie Eats

Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. Then, using a potato masher, gently mash sweet potatoes to break them up.

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup

with Collard Greens

This is not your average pressure cooker chicken vegetable soup. We’ve upped the ante, gone southern, and added the beloved collard greens! And in doing so, we’ve come across something truly special. The flavor is rich and mild, but definitely not bland! We found that adding a spoonful of pesto to the top of each bowl was pretty mind-blowing too!

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

 

Could you sub different chicken?

On the day we began developing this pressure cooker chicken vegetable soup recipe, the intention was to use a whole chicken for the meat and broth. But, that day, chicken leg quarters were on sale (almost half the price of whole chicken). So I decided to go with it, and it was a good choice! Because of the higher fat content of dark meat, the broth ended up being more rich and flavorful than when using a whole chicken.

I’m pretty sure using any combination of chicken pieces (or even a whole chicken) would work for this recipe with one exception: boneless, skinless chicken breasts. In my opinion, they just don’t have enough flavor to season the broth properly. However, if your goal is to create this dish as guilt-free as possible, and using breasts is a must, I would also use store-bought chicken broth (or stock) instead of water. Then cut the chicken cook time to 8 minutes with a natural pressure release.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

 

The Process

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Add chicken, chopped onion, garlic, thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes, and bay leaves to pot.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Then add water and lock lid. Set manual timer for 30 minutes at high pressure.

Remove stems from collard green leaves and separate leaves into 2 pieces. Discard stems.

Cut leaves into 1-inch pieces so that they are easily spoonable.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

This is easiest by stacking several leaves at a time.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for about 30 minutes. If there is any pressure left at that point, go ahead and quick-release remaining pressure.

Remove leg quarters and transfer them to a large bowl.

 

Pressure Cooker Chicken Vegetable Soup with Collard Greens | The Foodie Eats

Pour broth through a fine mesh strainer and set aside. Discard cooked aromatics.

  • 28 oz. crushed tomatoes
  • 4 oz. Parmigiano-Reggiano rinds optional
  • 1 lb. collard green leaves stems removed
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup basil pesto optional

Instructions

  1. Add chicken, chopped onion, garlic, thyme, oregano, red pepper flakes, and bay leaves to pot. Then add water and lock lid. Set manual timer for 30 minutes at high pressure.

  2. Remove stems from collard green leaves and separate leaves into 2 pieces. Discard stems. Cut leaves into 1-inch pieces so that they are easily spoonable. This is easiest by stacking several leaves at a time.

  3. Once cook time is complete, allow pressure to release naturally for about 30 minutes. If there is any pressure left at that point, go ahead and quick-release remaining pressure.

  4. Remove leg quarters and transfer them to a large bowl. Pour broth through a fine mesh strainer and set aside. Discard cooked aromatics.

  5. Add olive oil, onions, celery, carrots, and 1 teaspoon salt to pot. Sweat vegetables for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

  6. Add broth to pot, along with 2 teaspoons salt, tomatoes, rinds (if using), collard greens, brown sugar, and black pepper. Mix well, lock lid, and cook for 10 minutes at high pressure.

  7. Meanwhile… remove all chicken meat from bones in large pieces. Discard all skin and bones.

  8. Once cook time is complete, quick-release pressure. Then add chicken and gently mix well. Serve each bowl topped with a spoonful of basil pesto (with cornbread dumplings) & enjoy!

Recipe Notes

I'm pretty sure using any combination of chicken pieces (or even a whole chicken) would work for this recipe with one exception: boneless, skinless chicken breasts. In my opinion, they just don't have enough flavor to season the broth properly. However, if your goal is to create this dish as guilt-free as possible, and using breasts is a must, I would also use store-bought chicken broth (or stock) instead of water. Then cut the chicken cook time to 8 minutes with a natural pressure release.

Instant Pot Lasagna Soup

It’s funny… when I was a kid, believe it or not, lasagna was one of my favorite things to cook. Not to mention that my stepmom would request it on a regular basis. I guess I’ve always enjoyed cooking meals that take lots of preparation. Well, now I’m married, running two businesses, and have 2 kids (with a third on the way). So as you can imagine… I rarely have time to make lasagna these days. This is why I developed Instant Pot lasagna soup.

I know I’m not the first person to post a recipe for Instant Pot lasagna soup, but what I’ve done is translate my multi-hour process into about 30 minutes.

Pressure Cooker Ramen – Creamy Chicken (Spicy Option)

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Ramen

Creamy Chicken with Spicy Option

Let me begin by saying this… I completely realize that this is not an authentic preparation of ramen. I am from a small town in Florida, so it would be impossible to even claim such. However, I have eaten authentic ramen many times! So when you combine my love for authentic food, my lack of 2 days of time to prepare one meal, and my love for all things Instant Pot… you get this pressure cooker ramen recipe!

All that being said… I also wanted to create a recipe where you could get all of the ingredients from any grocery store. I know that Asian grocery stores are not available in all areas (our closest one is about 45 minutes away), so I’ve modified this method to come as close as possible. There is only one ingredient listed that I got from an Asian market – dried kelp (seaweed) aka kombu. I’ve listed it as optional, but I highly recommend at least ordering it online.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

 

What’s different from authentic to pressure cooker ramen?

Well, the biggest difference between ramen you would get in Japan and this pressure cooker ramen is simple: time! Ramen masters will cook their broth anywhere from 10 hours to 2 days! So obviously we are not gonna reach the level of depth in flavor. Our cheat in this recipe is to start with chicken broth instead of water. It’s a small change with BIG difference.

 

How to fake the noodles…

We’re using angel hair pasta in this pressure cooker ramen recipe. And at first glance you might think that it’s ridiculous. But we’re actually cooking them in salted water with cornstarch to transform their texture. The cornstarch gives the noodles a chewy texture that will remind you of traditional ramen noodles. You could also use instant ramen noodles instead. You will end up in the same place.

 

The Process

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Soak chicken in cold water for at least 30 minutes. This will help remove some of the blood and other impurities. The goal is to have a clean broth at the end, so don’t skip this step.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Add chicken to pot and cover with chicken broth. Turn on sauté setting and bring up to a boil.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Boil for about 15 minutes, removing all the scum as it boils.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

There should be no scum before you close the lid. Add 1 cup of sake and 1 cup of water, then lock lid and cook at high pressure for 90 minutes.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Add 1/2 cup tamari, 1/2 cup sake, and 1/2 cup mirin to a small pot and bring to a boil for 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool completely. We did this in the freezer for about 10 minutes.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Bring a pot of water to rolling bowl. Place eggs into boiling water and cook for 6 minutes. Then immediately transfer eggs to an ice water bath to stop the cooking.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Once cool, carefully peel eggs and place them in a small bowl with completely cooled soy/sake/mirin mixture. Lay a paper towel on top to help keep them submerged. These really should be prepped the day before to soak overnight.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

To make the tare… In a medium-sized pot – add 1 cup sake, 3 cups water, leek, mushrooms, garlic, and dried kelp. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 1 hour. Then run through a fine mesh strainer and return to pot and keep warm.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Once cook time in pressure cooker is complete, quick-release the pressure. There is a lot of liquid inside, so you may need to do this slowly or a little bit at a time.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Using a potato masher – break up the chicken as much as you can. We want to get every bit of flavor possible out of the bones, so don’t skip this step! Lock the lid and cook once again at high pressure for 30 minutes. Then do another quick-pressure release.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Using a mortar and pestle (or spice grinder) – grind up sesame seeds.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Preheat oven using high broiler setting. Season boneless chicken thighs (and optional chicken skin) with salt and pepper. Place on baking tray skin side up.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Move tray to oven on middle rack and cook for about 12 minutes. Keep a close eye on them. Once the skin has the right amount of color on them for your liking, move the tray to the bottom rack for remaining cooking time.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Once pressure cooker time is complete, pass the broth through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Quickly rinse out the pot and strainer. Then pass the broth through the strainer again back into the pot. Return pot to cooker base and turn on keep warm setting. About 5 minutes before serving, switch to sauté setting so that broth is boiling hot.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot over high heat. Heavily season water with 2 tablespoons of salt. This may seem like a lot of salt, but you’ll be cooking 3 things in this water. First cook the sprouts for about 1 minute, then remove and set aside. Once the water comes back up to a boil, cook the cabbage for about 2 minutes, then remove and set aside as well. Make sure to remove as much of the veggies as possible. Reduce to medium heat. Then add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to water, one at a time. The water will fizz a lot, so remove completely from heat if looks like it’s going to boil over.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Once the water is boiling at a reasonable level, add the pasta and cook according to instructions on the box. Then drain and set aside.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Using a serving bowl with high side and wide rim – add 1/2 cup of tare.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Then (for spicy option) add 2 tablespoons of garlic chili sauce…

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

…and mix well.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Then add 2 cups of broth to bowl.

 

Pressure Cooker Ramen | The Foodie Eats

Add noodles to broth and mix well to coat well with sauce.

 

And the result is…

Homemade Pressure Cooker Ramen!

Then add all your toppings to bowl. Since you have worked so hard to get this far, make sure you take the time arrange them as nice as possible.

Pressure Cooker Oxtail Stew – Jamaican Style

Pressure Cooker Oxtail Stew - Close-up in white bowl | The Foodie Eats

Pressure Cooker Oxtail Stew – Jamaican Style

Whether you grew up eating oxtail or you’re brand new to the experience, this Jamaican-Style Pressure Cooker Oxtail Stew is sure to be a hit. With the warmth of fresh ginger, the heat of Scotch bonnet pepper, and the sweetness of caramelized brown sugar, this soup presents a bold, yet perfectly balanced, flavor.

Oxtail stew is traditionally slow-cooked, with a cook time upward of three hours. Fortunately, with our friend the Instant Pot, we now can create a delicious pressure cooker oxtail stew in less than two hours!

Pressure Cooker Oxtail Stew - overhead in white bowl | The Foodie Eats

What is Oxtail?

Though I grew up eating oxtail, my wife didn’t. So, when I said that I was making pressure cooker oxtail stew for dinner, my wife asked me… “What is oxtail?”

The quick answer: Oxtail is the the tail of a cow. However, what my wife really wanted to know was what to expect as far as the quality, texture and taste of oxtail. Though oxtail is bony and a gelatin-rich meat, perfect for braising, stew and stock, the meat itself is similar in texture to pot roast.

Oxtail used to be considered a “poor man’s food.” However, as oxtail has gained popularity among connoisseurs and foodies, the price has gone up considerably. No longer a budget meal, oxtail stew remains a popular, and delicious dish.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Not all slow cooker chicken tortilla soup recipes are created equally. This one is so good that the first time I made it, I actually hurt myself by having thirds. But I had no regrets about it! It does require an “extra” step: cooking a whole chicken to use both the meat and broth. We did this overnight, then removed the chicken and added remaining ingredients in the morning. Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup | The Foodie Eats

2 Reasons to Use a Whole Chicken

With two little ones at home (and a third on the way), we’re always looking for ways to save a few bucks. Buying whole chickens is a no-brainer for using since they’re usually the cheapest meat at the grocery store.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup | The Foodie Eats

But even more than for saving money, the increased taste factor from using a whole chicken in this soup is the main reason. Sure, you can use chicken breasts and store-bought broth and they’ll work just fine. But the depth of flavor from this method takes this soup to another level.

Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup | The Foodie Eats

Is it worth the extra step?

I will admit… while developing this recipe, I wondered to myself if I was wasting my time by cooking a whole chicken first. In my head I thought it would be worth it, but I really just didn’t know. Then, after my wife took her first bite, I knew I had made the right decision. She said something like, “Okay, this might be the best thing you’ve ever cooked.” I’ll take it!
