Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I use pre-cooked Chicken?

Absolutely! I love to batch cook chicken in my Instant pot, divide it into servings, and toss it 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 every bite. My only word of advice is not to use overly seasoned chicken in the recipe. If it has lemon pepper seasoning on it, you might not get a great flavor pairing with spices in this recipe.

Is Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup Zero Weight Watchers Points?

This Recipe is similar to the Zero Point Taco Soup Recipe. The Complete List of Zero Point Foods Can be found on their website.  You do not need to add the toppings, and this will be a zero-point soup!
