Soup is one of the many things the Instant Pot does well, and this delicious Instant Pot Creamy Chicken Tortilla Soup is no exception. There are minimal ingredients in this soup, and it is easily made creamy with the versatile Basic Cream Soup Mix, which can be made easily and keeps in a cool place for months.
If you can’t find it at your grocery store, Salt Free Fajita Seasoning is easily made with spices you probably have on your shelf now. It is best because it allows you to add the amount of salt you want to dishes, since commercial fajita seasoning is mostly salt, and in this recipe, some of the ingredients are salty already.
