Healthy Taco Soup with Chicken | Instant Pot and Pressure Cookers 

As busy Moms, Michelle and I are on a quest to simplify life meal planning and cooking time.  Moms are being pulled in a million directions and our list of to do’s never ends.  I was SUPER suspicious about all the rave with the instant pot.  I’m not one for FAD anything EVER.  Michelle was raving about one recipe she made so off to Costco I went for the pressure cooker, sorry instant pot, no hard feelings (I am super IMPATIENT and didn’t want to wait for shipping.

Live Video How to make the Healthy Chicken Taco Soup 


  • Two 946 ml containers of chicken broth (unsalted and organic) or homemade if you have it
  • 2 cans of any beans of your choice *I use black beans
  • 1-3 tbsp of Taco seasoning *more if you like a little kick to your meals
  • One 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes *I blend mine in the Vitamix because my kids don’t love chunks
  • If you do not have canned tomatoes:  2 cups of pasta sauce (I ran out of crushed tomatoes and thought what the heck)
  • Two raw chicken breasts or thighs
  • Reserve 2 cups of frozen corn for after *I didn’t want it mushy in the pot – make sure it’s organic and non GMO
  • I’ve done this with already cooked left over chicken that I add at the end when it’s finished


How to Cook it:  

  • This would be great on the stove top if you don’t have a pressure cooker or instant pot
  • Michelle turned on the pot, it has to pressurize for approximately 10 minutes
  • After the pressure builds, the recipe cooked for 5 minutes
  • I was convinced I would have food poisoning but I cannot believe it was cooked, it was amazing and it was so ridiculously easy
  • Follow the pressure cookers instructions in your manual
  • Add frozen corn after the soup is cook so it’s not mushy
  • My kids walked in the door and said “It smells so good in here”
  • Suggested toppers: Avocado slices, green onions and grated cheese
  • Now celebrate more free time
