It is officially fall now which for me that means soup season. I love soups and when it turns to soup season. I have a great and simple Instant Pot salsa soup to kick off the season with.

This soup is basic, but you can easily add in other mix ins. It is a great way to use leftover items you may have in your fridge too. The soup is made with chicken, chicken broth, salsa, and taco seasoning. After it cooks in the Instant Pot for 25 minutes you shred the chicken. Then mix in some cream cheese. It’s that simple.

To serve you top it with some tortilla chips and cheese. Lately my favorite healthy tortilla chips are Food Should Taste Good Tortilla Chips. They are multigrain and gluten free. I use to be able to get them at my local Costco, but haven’t been able to find them lately. So I order them now from Amazon.

With this Instant Pot salsa soup, you can add in other items to make this more hearty if you want. You can mix in some beans or corn. You can use other topping too such as fresh diced tomato or avocado. The flavor of the soup can also be changed by the kind of salsa you use. I used a cilantro salsa when I made this soup.
