Easy Instant Pot (or not) Turkey Tortilla Soup Recipe
Instant Pot (or not) Turkey Tortilla Soup Recipe
Recipe type: Soup
  • 1 tablespoon of olive or vegetable oil
  • ½ cup of chopped onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 bell pepper chopped
  • 1 can of chopped green chiles
  • 1 package of taco seasoning
  • 1 jar of taco OR enchilada sauce
  • 1 can (796 ml) of tomatoes
  • 1 can (drained) of corn
  • 1 can (drained) of black beans (optional)
  • 3 cups of turkey stock
  • 2 cups of cooked turkey either shredded or cut into soup size pieces
  • salt and pepper to taste
Tortilla Strips
  • Tortillas cut into strips
  • olive or vegetable oil
  • garlic powder
  • chili powder
  • salt
  1. Set your instant pot to saute and add the olive oil. Or if you are slow cooking or making on the stove top put the olive oil in a pan on the stove top set to medium high.
  2. Once the oil is hot add the chopped onion, garlic and bell pepper.
  3. Saute for 5 minutes.
  4. Turn off the saute setting on your instant pot. If using a slow cooker or crock pot transfer the sauted ingredients.
  5. Add all of the other soup ingredients except the corn.
  6. Put the lid on your Instant Pot. Make sure it's set to seal.
  7. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes.
  8. Allow the pressure to come down on its own for 10 minutes before doing the quick pressure release. Be careful when releasing as soup tends to splatter and release a lot of steam!
  9. Once the pressure is released remove the lid and stir in the corn.
  10. To make the tortilla strips, cut tortillas (I prefer corn but flour ones work just fine) into thin strips. A pizza cutter works well for that.
  11. Preheat oven to 375.
  12. Place the strips in a bowl and drizzle with a little oil.
  13. Stir to coat.
  14. If you want to season sprinkle the seasonings on now and stir again to coat.
  15. Cook for 10-12 minutes (tossing half way through) until crispy.
  16. Serve the soup with the strips, sour cream and, if you like, shredded cheese.
  17. Enjoy!
