Pressure Cooker Taco Soup

in 2 Simple Steps!

I love tacos almost as much as I love soup. Well, not really, but it sounded good, right? I do actually like tacos quite a bit though. Now I don’t normally think of tacos when I think of soup. But this pressure cooker taco soup (we love the Instant Pot) actually tastes like you’re eating a taco – except it’s soup.

It’s Kinda Like Tacos and Chili Had a Baby

The texture of this soup is definitely closer to that of chili, but with much less beans – meaning it’s hearty, meaty and filling.  But it tastes nothing like chili, so it’s quite surprising to eat. And it is one of the most simple soups we’ve made – you brown the beef, dump in everything else, and close the lid. That’s it!

    As i understand it, Rotel is a brand name for a line of canned tomatoes and green chilli of different varieties. What exactly, do you have in mind here?

      Yes, when using the Rotel brand, we use the can labeled “Original” unless otherwise noted. You could absolutely use a generic version of it though.
