How to Make Pressure Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup
The ingredients for this soup are all pretty standard and easy to come by. While this recipe calls for canned beans, it is entirely possible to cook your dried beans from scratch using your pressure cooker (see the pressure cooker charts for cooking times) before making this soup. Using canned beans make this recipe a very quick fix, and since there are two types of beans in the soup it’s more convenient to add caned than to cook both from scratch.
Tomato-Based Chicken Tortilla Soup
The base for this soup is a mixture of chicken stock and canned tomatoes, making a thin tomato-based broth. I like using fire-roasted tomatoes for the soup for a smoky nuance, but if you can’t find a can of fire-roasted tomatoes (for some reason these seem difficult to find in Canada) you can always use regular tomatoes. If you want that smoky flavor, try adding a teaspoon of smoked paprika when you add the other spices.
