It was so flavorful and always filled me up, despite being a soup. It kept me full all through the afternoon and on my hour commute home. 

That’s when you know it’s a good meal-sized soup. It fills you up and keeps you full.

This soup also freezes well and makes excellent leftovers. Chicken tortilla soup is one of my favorite soups (right below broccoli cheddar soup).

It works as a great meal both in the cold and hot months because it is so refreshing.

Making soup in the instant pot saves me time and allows me to cook it with frozen chicken breasts.

Using frozen chicken is one of my favorite ways to cook in my instant pot because I don’t have to plan ahead and pull the meat out to defrost during the busy morning.
