I think this Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup is now one of my favourite all-time soups. I love that we can add whatever toppings we want from the lime juice to chili peppers, crunchy tortilla chips or tortillas, cilantro, avocado and more. I tried to make this soup so that it had a bit of kick but mild enough that it wasn’t too spicy for my hubby and daughter. I spiced up my own bowl by adding some red chilis and jalapenos so it was a win-win for everyone.This Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup is a perfect comfort food meal that comes together in minutes using your electric pressure cooker with amazing authentic flavours!I love the flavours that the fresh lime and cilantro add to the soup as the toppings and of course some shredded cheese that melted into some gooey goodness. My hubby and daughter love bell peppers (me not so much) so while they took a pass on the chili peppers they added some chopped yellow and orange bell peppers to their bowls. We each enjoyed our filling bowls of this Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup. This Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup is a perfect comfort food meal that comes together in minutes using your electric pressure cooker with amazing authentic flavours!I loved throwing all the ingredients into the Instant Pot and just letting it do its thing. Once the Instant Pot reached pressure it was only six minutes of actual cooking in the pot. My soups tend to have lots of ingredients as I prefer a hearty soup over one that’s more broth than substance. That said if you don’t want quite as much as I do just cut back on whatever you want.

You may have heard me say it before but I’ll say it again I only use chicken that has the raised by a Canadian farmer logo.

Why we only buy and eat chicken with the raised by a Canadian farmer logo.

I actually have a long list of reasons but the ones closest to my heart are that as my husband and I are both small business owners aka we work for ourselves we also believe in supporting small businesses and our community. We get all of that and more when we buy chicken with the raised by a Canadian farmer logo. The majority of those farms are family owned and run and this means we’re all supporting and contributing to the Canadian economy. Pair that with the fact that I know we’re getting quality chicken that is hormone-free and raised to the highest animal care standards then I’m a happy mama. My family gets quality food that is ethically raised while supporting family-owned businesses that help our country’s economy. What’s not to like?

If your grocery store doesn’t carry chicken with this logo make sure to talk to the store manager and ask for them to bring it in. You won’t be sorry you did.
