Instant Pot Taco Soup
Taco soup is a delicious and easy family favorite, and you can make it in the Instant Pot, slow cooker or on the stove top.
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 1/2 lbs ground beef
- 1 onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 cups corn (frozen or canned) drained
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 can pinto beans (14 oz) drained
- 1 can black beans (14 oz) drained
- 16 oz mild salsa
- 1 1/2 cup water (or chicken broth)
- 1 packet taco seasoning
Using the sauté mode (medium), brown the ground beef and onions until fully cooked, about 7 to 8 minutes.
Drain the fat off beef, if desired, and return to pot. (I have skipped this step if I have used leaner meat or grass-fed beef).
Add the remaining ingredients, and place the lid on, lock it.
Cook on manual high pressure for 12 minutes. (Note: it will take a while to get up to pressure)
Allow the pot to depressurize naturally, indicated by the pressure indicator pin drop. (not using the quick presser release lever - mine took about 25 minutes to fully release).
