This Instant Pot Chicken Tortilla Soup with cilantro lime chicken is a delicious, 30 minute meal. Quickly sauté chicken right in your pressure cooker to boost the flavor before adding fire roasted tomatoes, black beans, and sweet corn to complete this hearty soup.
Add the olive oil, garlic, jalapeños, cilantro, and lime juice to a small blender jar or food processor. Pulse until smooth.
Add the cilantro lime sauce, chicken, and onion to the Instant Pot on the sauté setting for five minutes. Cook the chicken until the pieces are fully coated in the sauce and starting to turn white (from pink).
Add all remaining ingredients and close the lid. Ensure the valve is set to seal. Cook using the manual setting for 7 minutes.
Carefully perform a quick release. Serve immediately topped with Monterey Jack cheese, avocado chunks, chopped cilantro, and corn chips.
Jarred minced garlic is fine, but don't use bottled lime juice as the taste will not be the same. Use a quality chicken stock or make your own Instant Pot Bone Broth. Use petite diced tomatoes if you prefer smaller bites.
