10 Minute Chicken Tortilla Soup in an Instant Pot, Crock Pot, or on the Stovetop – this is so delicious, simple, and crazy easy!
We’ve had a brutal round of the flu this year – I don’t know what it is, but it has been absolutely brutal lately!
Anytime I am sick, there is one thing I crave more than others – anything spicy, hot, and full of flavor that will clear out my sinuses.
After having a craving recently – but not wanting to go through all of the process for other spicy soups, it hit me – I could make this insanely delicious and easy soup in just 10 minutes with almost no effort!
To Make This Chicken Tortilla Soup, You’ll Need:
If you haven’t tried an instant pot yet, what are you waiting for?
It is amazing to prep meals in, since it is a cross between a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, and a stovetop – you can sautee in it, use it for a slow cooker, or use it to make traditional slow-cooked meals in no time with the pressure cooker settings!
And the best part of this recipe – you can make it really easily in an Instant Pot, on the stovetop, or in a slow cooker!
The stovetop and Instant Pot Methods take just ten minutes – the slow cooker one obviously takes a bit longer to cook, but it’s almost no prep!
Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
To make this soup in the slow cooker, brown your chicken and vegetables first – and then add the rest of the ingredients to a slow cooker and heat on low for 4 hours, stirring occasionally.
Stovetop Chicken Tortilla Soup
If you want to get a quick head start to this soup, you can use pre-baked or grilled chicken, diced into cubes for a super quick and simple dinner!
Is there anything more comforting than tortilla soup? I certainly don’t think so!!
