Mommy Hates Cooking

Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup

Make a quick, delicious dinner with Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup!

I am finding more and more that using my Instant Pot is my go-to for soups.  It’s so much faster than waiting on them to slow cook all day, plus most of the time I forget to put the soup in the slow cooker.  Maybe that’s more of my issue than needing it to cook quickly? This Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup is one of my all time favorites.

Chicken Taco Soup is our favorite soup as a family, we love it served with Doritos.  The Doritos are perfect for dipping, plus cheesy.  What could be better?

Sometimes it’s easy to use a taco seasoning packet, but I also love to make it myself too.  This homemade taco seasoning is one we use regularly.  Of course, needing gluten free, sometimes it’s easier to just make it myself, plus I almost always have everything I need on hand.

That means even when it’s a last minute dinner decision, I can easily make a delicious Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup in minutes!

The hardest part about using the Instant Pot for me is just waiting on that pressure to build.  Once it builds, this soup only takes 4 minutes!  I find that typically will equate to maybe 20 minutes between waiting on it to build, and then cooking.

I have found though it’s easy to put it together, help the kids get situated after school and come back and it’s ready go to.

I can even prep it earlier too, so that it’s ready to just set it and go when we get home from school.  I have to admit that prepping ahead literally saves my sanity.

What is it about after school, the kids just seem to fall apart!  Of course, I’m sure it’s just being tired partially, but it’s time for homework too.

I have to admit now that I’m a parent, I really HATE homework.  I think of it this way, when I go to work for 8 hours, I don’t want to bring my work home.

Who wants to do that even as an adult?

Why should a child go to school for 6-8 hours, and then have to come home and do more work?  Sometimes for older kids it’s HOURS of homework?

I really want someone to explain this to me because I absolutely hate it and see no point in it at all.  Kids should be able to be kids too, not just do work all day long…just as an adult, I would want time to do stuff I love, not work all day long.

That’s my issue I guess, but it really bothers me sometimes.  I am sure too as my kids get older, the homework will only get more and more.

In the meantime, let’s get back to enjoying this Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup!

    The recipe sounds wonderful and I plan on making it today, my one question is do I drain the cans of black beans, corn and tomatoes or any of them? Thanks!

      I usually don’t drain mine.
