INSTANT POT METHOD

  • Press the "warm/cancel" button to turn saute function off. Now add in the chicken broth, chicken breasts, oregano, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, diced tomatoes.
  • Close the top of the instant pot. Press the "soup" button and let cook until cooking time is completed (30 minutes), then manually release pressure by flipping the vent at the top.

  1. I omitted the jalapeños because I can’t handle heat, but found the soup could use a touch more flavor. Is there any way to get a little more spice without heat?

  2. I recently made this soup and it came out very bland. 🙁 Is it because I used low sodium chicken broth? If not, what can I do to add more flavor next time? 😉 Thank you!

    1. A quality, flavorful broth definitely makes a difference in a simple soup like this. I would taste and adjust the seasonings as desired plus an extra squeeze of lime.

  3. 5 stars
    Love this and has the perfect spice. I added some zucchini, squash, carrot, and celery to the dish to add in some veggies, and a touch of rice because why not! SO good.

  4. Hi, made this last night! It was delicious but a tad too spicy for my kids. Should I use regular chili powder next time as opposed to chipotle chili? Or do you think it was the jalapeño? I would think jalapeño would get mild from cooking so assuming it was chipotle powder.
