Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup (Whole30 & Paleo)

The instant pot is the easiest way to make a tasty soup and this Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup is no exception. It is so nice because you just throw all the ingredients into the post and can get going with the rest of your day. Sometimes if I have time during a lunch break, I will make this recipe and then let it stay on the “keep warm” setting until it’s time to eat dinner. This recipe is also good if you are having guests over and want a hearty way to satisfy everyone, just double the recipe and keep the cooking time the same.

If you don’t already have an Instant Pot, I highly recommend the investment. We use it at least twice a week and it cuts cooking times down significantly and can make food taste like it has been simmering all day. You can use it for soups, rice, stews, meats, hard boiled eggs and even just steaming vegetables.
