Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup (Zero WW Points)

Pin This Recipe!

Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup (Zero WW Points) is a satisfying and quick Instant Pot soup recipe I recommend making for the family. Tender chicken, loads of that Tex-Mex flavor, and topped with all your favorite fixings. Use low-fat sour cream and skip the tortilla strips to make this a Zero WW Points. Chicken Tortilla Soup will become an instant family favorite without blowing your diet. You can have as much Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla soup as you want on weight watchers.

Soup season is approaching, or if you are like me, you enjoy it all year round. The chicken tortilla is one of my favorite soups. Hearty, savory, and bursting with fresh flavors. Making it in the Instant Pot helps offer that low and slow simmered taste in a fraction of the time.

Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup

My chicken tortilla soup Instant Pot recipe is one that I get asked a lot about. I finally sat down and got it all ready for you to enjoy. This is one of my go-to freezer soup recipes I keep stocked up in my freezer. Then on those days where I am craving a little spice or a hearty soup, I pull it out, heat it up and serve.

Can I Use Pre-Cooked Chicken In Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup (Zero WW Points)

Absolutely! I love to batch cook chicken in my Instant pot and then divide it up into servings and toss in the freezer. Then for meals just like this, use it to replace raw chicken. It speeds up the cooking time and still offers rich and tasty chicken in every single bite. My only word of advice is not to use overly seasoned chicken in the recipe. If it has a lemon pepper seasoning on it, you might not get a great flavor pairing with spices in this recipe.

Will This Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup (Zero WW Points) Adapt To Be Vegetarian 

Sure. You can leave out the chicken and cook it without, and still get a flavorful soup. Add in a few extra beans for added protein. Vegetarian tortilla soup is just as tasty, in my opinion. You could also chop up some tofu and add that in at the end of cooking and let it warm up in the hot broth.
