Instant Pot Verde Chicken Soup

Makes: 6-8 servings

Ready in: 25 Minutes

How many dinners can you pull together in 25 minutes?  My favorite way to serve this is with toasted and sliced cassava flour tortillas to make a tortilla soup

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs

*Save time by preparing your veggies and toppings while the soup cooks.


  1. Add chicken, salsa and broth to Instant Pot.

  2. Set Instant Pot to high and cook for 10 minutes.

  3. Release pressure.

  4. Remove the chicken and use 2 forks to shred the chicken or chop if you prefer, then return to the soup.

  5. Serve topped with tomatoes and avocado.
