Green Chile Chicken Soup

This soup recipe could not be more simple! It can be prepared in the Instant Pot or Slow Cooker. Don’t you just love a recipe that you can “dump and cook,” as in, dump all of your ingredients, set it and forget it! That’s one of the many reasons I love cooking in my Instant Pot!

Grab the ingredients you’ll need and get ready for a super simple and delicious dinner!

For the seasonings you’ll need:

-2 tsp Cumin

-2 tsp Oregano

-1 tsp Chili Powder

-1/2 tsp Salt

-1/2 tsp Black Pepper

Chop the onion and garlic.

Drain and rinse your beans. If you haven’t heard of hominy, you can find it in the canned vegetable aisle at your local grocery store! You can substitute any other kind of bean if you’d like as well! This is what Hominy looks like:

Add all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot except for the cilantro and lime juice. Stir.

Close the lid, turn the venting knob to “sealing” and cook on HIGH pressure for 20 minutes. Allow the pressure to release naturally, this can take anywhere from 15-45 minutes. You will know that the pressure has released completely when the silver pin has dropped. Carefully open the lid.

Remove the chicken and shred, then return it to the pot. Add the cilantro and juice of 1/2 of a lime and stir. Top with avocado and tortilla strips and enjoy!
