This quick and easy pressure cooker chicken enchilada soup is a pressure cooker version of the popular Tex-Mex slow cooker soup.

What’s great about this recipe is all you have to do is open a few cans, throw in a couple of boneless, skinless chicken breasts and in less than half an hour, you’ve got a homemade soup that tastes like it took hours to make.

Making Quick and Easy Chicken Enchilada Soup in an Instant Pot

An Instant Pot is one of the most popular brands of electric pressure cookers. They are easy to use and your Instant Pot can help you create this Quick and Easy Chicken Enchilada Soup!

You’ll find chicken enchilada soups on the menu at many restaurants. What makes it special are the toppings you add to dress it up.

In addition to topping the soup with cheese, sour cream, cilantro and avocado, I bought some fun tri-color tortilla strips at the store. I found a package tucked in the salad topping section. They were a bit of a splurge, but I knew they’d be fun in the pictures. Feel free to substitute crushed tortilla chips instead.
