EASY Instant Pot Seven Can Tortilla Soup (Perfect for Beginners)

Not a lot of time for dinner? We got you covered. This Seven Can Chicken soup comes together in literally no time at all . . . and the awesome thing is that you can use pantry ingredients to make this easy meal!

Taco Soup is the one of the best soups ever. Well, at least I think so. You can make this soup out of everything in your pantry. No freezer or fridge items needed!

Now this Taco Soup comes together in a matter of minutes! I can’t think of one person who couldn’t use a fast meal!

For this recipe, start with all of your canned items. Add your spices and mix them together. Here are the canned items you will need:

  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can diced tomatoes, drained
  • 1 can sweet corn, drained
  • 1 can chicken breast, drained
  • 1 can green enchilada sauce
  • 1 can chicken broth

If you don’t like all the ingredients it is very easy to switch them out. You can use any kind of beans that you like. If you don’t like corn, you don’t have to add it – just add another can of tomatoes.

You can use cooked chicken instead of canned and you can use red enchilada sauce instead of green if you want. Make it how YOU like it!

One thing I love about this 7 Can Taco Soup is that you can make it in your stock pot, slow cooker or pressure cooker.

Here is the recipe for our 7 Can Taco Soup in the Slow Cooker.

How to make Taco Soup in the Stock Pot:

Take all the canned ingredients and spices and dump them in the stock pot. Turn on your stove to medium high heat and cook until all the soup is heated through.

How to make taco soup in the slow cooker:

Take the canned ingredients and spices and put them in the slow cooker. Put the lid on, and cook on low 2-3 hours. You can cook it longer if you need to.

How to make taco soup in the INSTANT POT:

Add all of the ingredients into your Instant Pot and put the lid on. Make sure your knob is on sealing, then push manual. Make the timer go up to 4 minutes. When it pressurizes and the timer is done, switch your knob to venting or quick release.

You CANNOT beat 4 minutes. I love my Instant Pot.

Can you Freeze This Meal?

The Taco Soup can be made into a freezer meal very easily! Just just have to dump all the ingredients into a freezer zip lock bag and freeze it!

The night before you are ready to cook it, put it in your fridge so it will thaw. Watch the Youtube video below to see how to put it together (and to see my trick of how I make freeze meals!)

I’ll give you a hint: Use a plastic water pitcher from the dollar tree! Especially if you want it to freeze more of a round shape to fit it back into your Instant Pot when frozen.

Now the thing that makes taco soup delicious is the toppings! Some of my favorite toppings are sour cream, tomatoes, tortilla chips, avocado, green onions, and of course cheese!

    I love all of your recipes! The taco soup is a must. (Especially after a long day at work.) I am the owner, lover and advocate of the instant pot. I have a 6qt and an 8qt. They are both used every week for our Sunday night family dinner. I tell everyone about this amazing tool in my kitchen. People question if I even use my stove anymore. Which honestly, I hardly ever do. Both if my instant pots are used all the time!

    Just trying to understand the Instant Pot. If I add rice to this soup, would I need to add more liquid or would that 1 can of chicken broth be enough liquid? Also, if this is a soup why would you need to drain the cans of tomatoes, beans and corn?
    • Reheating soup in the Instant Pot pressure cooker is super easy! All you need to do is pour the soup in the Instant Pot, close the lid, turn the valve to a Sealing position, press the “Pressure Cook” or “Manual” button and set the time to ZERO. Basically, the Instant Pot will reheat the soup while it’s coming to pressure. Since you are not cooking the soup but simply reheating it, zero minutes cooking time is just right :) When the timer beeps, the Instant Pot will automatically switch to “Keep Warm” mode and will keep your soup hot until you are ready to serve it.
