Instant Pot Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup

I love enchiladas, but I don’t always love the work! With this fantastic Instant Pot creamy chicken enchilada soup recipe, it takes all the thinking and work right out of the recipe.

Soup can be a hit or miss in my house sometimes, but never with this deliciously creamy and easy Instant Pot recipe! Plus, with all of the flavor and chicken, my husband LOVES it! 

You can make this recipe as hot and spicy or less spicy as you would like by changing the amount of chili powder or sriracha sauce, but how we have it is a good balance with a medium heat level. So, if you and your kids like spicer foods, add more spice and make it just how you like it!

This is a great family dinner recipe to make on those colder and busier evenings because it doesn’t take much work at all! You’ll be surprised later on how easy this recipe truly is.

  • Instant Pot 
  • Forks or Hand/Stand mixer
  • Measuring spoons 
  • Measuring tablespoon cup (optional)

You all probably have wonderful memories, but if you happen to be anything like me, you might have a hard time remembering just how many tablespoons of the Worcestershire sauce you already measured out and pour into your recipe. Well, if that is you, then you NEED this mini measuring cup! I use mine all the time.

How to make this healthy Instant Pot soup recipe:

First, start by getting out your Instant Pot (I love THIS one). Place your frozen chicken breasts in the bottom of the Instant Pot.  

Add in the garlic, chili powder, Worcestershire sauce, sriracha sauce, chopped onion, diced red pepper, black beans, and corn.
*Be sure to drain and rinse your black beans, but DO NOT drain the corn.*

Then add in the enchilada sauce, chicken broth, and some salt and pepper to taste.

 After you have done that, you need to put the lid on top, turn it into the locked position, turn the knob on top to sealing. Press the manual button (or pressure button) and set the timer for 20 minutes.

After the timer goes off, turn the knob from the “SEALING” position to the “VENTING” to do a quick release of all of the pressure inside of the Instant Pot.

Now, remove the chicken from the Instant Pot and shred it however you like. We used 2 forks, but you can also use bear claws.  (You can also toss in the kitchen aide and let the mixer do the tedious work of shredding the chicken.)

Once the chicken is all shredded, put it back into the Instant Pot along with the heavy cream, sour cream, and cheddar cheese. Stir it all up until everything is melted together and the soup is smooth.

Then, serve it hot with some tortilla chips and cilantro and you are ready to eat the tasty Instant Pot soup recipe.
