  1. How long to cook if chicken is still kind of frozen? (I work full time in hospital pharmacy, busy mom and wife!)  😳

  2. Consider adding potassium content to your nutritional information. I am on dialysis & can only have 2000 mg of potassium daily (half the RDA). And getting the RDA can be a challenge even if you’re perfectly healthy!  Just a suggestion…

  3. I have the same question someone else asked, but I didn’t see an answer.
    I have leftover chicken which I’d like to use instead of the raw chicken breaststroke. Do you have an opinion as to whether I should pressurize it for the same time listed in your recipe? Thanks!

  4. I have already reviewed this, but I just want to say: What a great recipe. We make our own taco seasoning, or get lazy and use store bought, and either way it is very tasty. Family of 8 now and no one dislikes it.

  5. Yum! This was my first recipe in my new Instant Pot. I doubled the chicken to give us a heartier meal. Served with diced avocado, sour cream and shredded cheddar, and we crumbled some tortilla chips on top at the table. And next time I’d have some limes on hand to squeeze on after serving.
    It was a hit with the whole family of 4. My kids say it’s a favorite already. And I’ve got just enough left to give them lunch tomorrow.

  6. This chicken soup tasted different from others. Mostly better than others, I enjoyed it pretty much and loved it. Thanks for sharing such an amazing recipe for us

  7. Another winner! My kids loved it and I loved how simple it was to make! Thanks!

  8. Can I double this? Will that effect cook time?

  9. Can I use frozen corn instead of canned corn?

  10. How do you know if these recipes are meant for the 6 qt or the 8 qt? Just got an IP 6 qt but finding out some recipes are too much liquid and therefore doesn’t pressurize. How do I know this ahead of time to avoid disappointment?

  11. I already have shredded chicken from another meal, do I still cook the remaining ingredients at 15 min or can I cook less since there is no raw chicken in there?

  12. The best soup ever!! I used a can of rotel instead of the tomatoes/chilis but I’m sure either would be great!

  13. Loved making this, super easy and very good

  14. Can you do this with frozen chicken breast? Or should it be thawed? Thanks!

  15. We loved this soup! Made it in slow cooker. I made it the second time to serve to our friends and they loved it too! I’m sending them the recipe. It’s so easy and delicious! Topped with sour cream, shredded cheese and tortilla chips.

  16. This was so quick and easy to make. I doubled the beans and plan on using the spicy taco seasoning next time to give a bit of a kick. Picky husband even really like it.

  17. I don’t have an instant pot, so I made this on the stove. I loved how fast and easy it was to make, and it has great flavor! We crumbled a few tortilla chips on top, with a dollop of sour cream an a sprig of cilantro. This recipe is a keeper!

  18. This was so easy and really tasty- thanks for sharing the recipe. I used pinto beans (because it’s what I had in the pantry) & it turned out great.

    • Hi Teresa, thanks for commenting! I’m sure pinto beans tasted great. The versatility of this soup is one of my favorite things about it! So glad you enjoyed it. :)

  19. Just made this in my IP Duo last night. SO easy and delicious. Loving the low-cal too.
