I’m sure I’ve talked about this before, but I am obsessed with pressure cooker meals! Not only can they feed our whole family, but you can literally cook up a meal that would normally take hours in just a few minutes.
When I first got my pressure cooker last year I felt a bit intimidated by it and couldn’t find a whole lot of recipes for it. Once I got the cook times for meat and soup down it became so easy to use. Now, I use it whenever I get a chance!
Pressure Cooker Chicken Taco Soup
This week I was really craving a Mexican dish, so I thought I would make some chicken taco soup in my pressure cooker. My family really loves this meal. It’s great because you can serve it with different toppings, so each family member has some options.
I’ve been trying to incorporate beans into a lot of our meals because they are healthy and yummy. It’s so easy to throw a can of beans into a pressure cooker or crock pot meal. We love to use S&W Beans because you can really taste the difference in flavor. They also have a variety of options, like organic and low sodium if you have a particular diet.
I can’t recommend this meal enough for busy moms either. It takes under 30 minutes to cook and feeds a large family of 5-6. You will most likely have leftovers and those are just as yummy. I usually save the leftovers to have during the week at home for lunch.
Here’s What You’ll Need
- 1 can each of Pinto, Black, and Kidney Beans (We used S&W Beans. Like I said, they have more vibrant color and taste so good!)
- 1 Can Whole Kernel Corn
- 2 Cans Mexican Style Diced Tomatoes
- 1 Can Stewed Tomatoes
- 2 large Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
- 1/2 Onion Chopped
- 2 Cloves of Garlic Minced
- 1 packet of Taco Seasoning
- 2 Cups Water or Chicken Broth
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Here’s What To Do:
- First cook your chicken. I seasoned 2 chicken breasts lightly with salt and pepper, then threw them in my electric pressure cooker with 2 cups of water, chopped onions, and garlic. I cooked them on the pressure cooker setting for 10 minutes.
- Drain then shred or chop up your chicken
- Put your chicken, canned beans, tomatoes, and taco seasoning in your drained pressure cooker then stir it up
- Cook on pressure setting for 5-8 minutes
- Serve with tortilla strips, sour cream, salsa, and/or avocado
I hope you get a chance to try this meal in your pressure cooker. If you are feeling nervous about getting started with pressure cooker meals, my best advice is to follow the cook times and you should be just fine!
