Homemade taco soup was one of the first homemade soup recipes I learned to make.
I originally used my slow cooker to make it, but then once I learned how to use a pressure cooker, I started making Instant Pot taco soup.
It’s still one of my favorite soups to this day. But since that version includes beef, I thought I would create a version that uses chicken.
This Instant Pot chicken taco soup is every bit as flavorful as its beef counterpart, and every bit as easy to make–that’s why it’s on my list of the best Instant Pot chicken soups!!

Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup with Ranch Dressing and Taco Seasoning
One of my favorite things about this taco soup is that you just need a few cans and a couple of packets to make this meal sing!
I use a packet of taco seasoning and a packet of ranch seasoning mix to provide loads of flavor. It doesn’t get much easier than that!
Some people call this a “7-can chicken taco soup” because recipes often call for 7 cans of ingredients, such as beans and tomatoes.
No matter what you call it, the result is a delicious Instant Pot Mexican chicken soup that is filling and easy!

Ingredients You’ll Need:
- Boneless skinless chicken breasts

How to Make It:
(Full printable recipe is available below)
Combine ingredients. In the insert pot of the Instant Pot, combine all of the ingredients except the sour cream.
Pressure cook. Next, you’ll pressure cook at high pressure for 5 minutes, followed by a natural release of pressure.
Shred chicken. Last, you’ll shred the chicken and add the sour cream to the soup. Stir everything together and serve!

- Shred the chicken and return to the pot, stirring to combine.
- Serve, topping with shredded cheese, avocado slices, more sour cream, or tortilla chips as desired!
