Pressure Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup. Are you looking for a quick soup that the whole family will love? I have one for you!
For this recipe, you will need some enchilada sauce. You can either buy it or make your own. I want to show you how simple it is to make your own. You can decide after you see how to make it whether or not it is something you want to tackle. If you aren’t into making it, skip the next few steps and open your can instead :).
It starts with a roux. This is a combo of oil and flour. For this recipe, also add chili powder. It cooks with the roux. I like to cook it for about 3-5 minutes. This will add flour, but you also need to cook out the flour taste.
Add in the crushed tomatoes, stock, seasonings.
Cook another few minutes. That’s it. It’s done. It took a little over 5 minutes total. That is it! Now, on to the soup.
This recipe is a lovely quick meal. It's flavorful and so tasty! Start to finish, it took about 45-50 minutes. Although the cook time is only about 25 minutes, it takes about 5-10 minutes to eat up. Then there is the pressure release time.
2-3chicken breastsYou can either chop these like I did, or leave them whole and shred at the end.
4cupsblack beansYou can either use canned or do your own in the pressure cooker.

2cupschicken or veggie stock

Add all ingredients to pressure cooker, except the evaporated milk. Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes. Do the natural release for about 5 minutes, then go ahead and CAREFULLY do the quick pressure release. Remove lid and unplug. Stir in evaporated milk, plate and serve immediately. We like to top ours with avocados, red onions and pepper jack cheese. We also love chips or charred tortillas with it. Now, sit back and you deserve it!!
Enchilada sauce will probably be easier than you could imagine. Not only is it really inexpensive to make, it's also pretty quick. If those 2 things weren't enough, it's also good to know what is going into our food!
