This Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of our families favorite recipes and it is very easy to make in the Instant Pot.

Start out by turning the Instant Pot to Saute mode and allow it to heat up. Add the olive oil, then add the diced onion and bell peppers and cook for 3-4 minutes.

Add the rest of the ingredients except for the cilantro and stir.

Put the lid on and push the pressure cook button. Adjust the time to 12 minutes and allow it to cook. When the timer is up, allow the pressure to release naturally for 20 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure.

Remove the chicken and shred.

Using an immersion blender, blend the soup for a quick 5-10 seconds just enough to give a creaminess to the soup.

Add the chicken back to the soup, add the cilantro and stir.

Serve the soup with your favorite toppings including sour cream, cheese, onion, avocado, tortilla chips, tomatoes, more cilantro, etc.

Enjoy!

Instant Pot Chicken Enchiladas

It has been WAY to long since I have posted an Instant Pot recipe and after a recipe request, here we are!

If you are new to the Instant Pot, feel free to check out my very informative post about them. 🙂 https://fromarvadawithlove.com/2017/07/25/instant-pot-101-tips-tricks-and-must-have-accessories/

We had these Chicken Enchiladas last night and they were delicious. They may not look pretty but the flavor is out of this world. Both of the boys absolutely loved them.

Season the chicken with taco seasoning, then add 1 Can of enchilada sauce to the instant pot along with the diced onion, garlic and chicken breasts. Reserve the second can of enchilada sauce for a later step.

Put the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the venting knob to sealing. Push the “manual” or “pressure cook” button and adjust the time to 15 minutes. When the timer goes off allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes before releasing the rest of the pressure by carefully turning the venting knob to venting. 

Shred the chicken and get ready to assemble the enchiladas. Spray the bottom of a pan with cooking spray.

This is the pan I love off of Amazon, it’s great because you can use it by itself or stacked to cook more than one batch of enchiladas or whatever you’re making. 🙂

Tear two corn tortillas in half and layer the bottom of the pan. Add a spoonful of enchilada sauce to the tortillas. 

Add a layer of chicken, then a layer of shredded cheese. Continuing these steps, add two more layer and finish with a layer of tortillas, enchilada sauce and cheese.

Add 1 cup of water to a clean instant pot inner pot. Cover the pan with aluminum foil, place the pan on a trivet and place into the instant pot. 

Put the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the venting knob to sealing. Push the “manual” or “pressure cook” button and adjust the time to 15 minutes. When the timer goes off quickly release the pressure by carefully turning the venting knob to venting. 

Allow the enchiladas to cool for 10 minutes before serving. 

**Note: you can use precooked chicken instead of raw. Just warm the chicken in a pan with taco seasoning and enchilada sauce then continue with the rest of the steps. 

So delicious!!! Enjoy! 🙂
