10 Minute Chicken Tortilla Soup in an Instant Pot, Crock Pot, or on the Stovetop – this is so delicious, simple, and crazy easy! 

To Make This 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!!
