Chicken Tortilla Soup
Serves: 8 servings
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (if using Instant Pot or stove top)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 (10 oz) can enchilada sauce (I used hot to give it a kick)
  • 1 (4.5 oz) can chopped green chiles
  • 1 Tbsp cumin
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen corn
  • 1½ lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts (if using Instant Pot or slow cooker) or 3 cups shredded rotisserie chicken (if using stove top)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Toppings (optional): Cilantro, avocado, shredded cheese
  1. To make in your instant pot: Drizzle olive oil in the bowl of your instant pot and turn on the sauté function. Once oil is simmering, sauté the onion for 3 to 4 minutes then add garlic, sautéing an additional minute. Then add the rest of the ingredients (except lime juice) and set the Instant Pot to the soup setting and set timer for 7 minutes. Once cooking is complete, let the instant pot sit for about 12 minutes then release the steam by placing the valve to the venting position. Remove chicken and shred using two forks, then return chicken to the pot and stir in lime juice.
  2. To make in your slow cooker: In a 6-quart slow cooker, add chicken and the rest of the ingredients (except lime juice), cover and place on high for 3 to 4 hours or low 6 to 8 hours. Remove chicken and shred with two forks then add back into the slow cooker along with the lime juice.
  3. To make on your stove top: In a large dutch oven or pot on medium high heat, drizzle oil and sauté onion for 3 to 4 minutes then add garlic, sautéing an additional minute. Add the rest of the ingredients (except for lime juice) and bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 30. Add lime juice and any additional toppings you prefer. Enjoy!
