Homemade Taco Seasoning


  • Place the Instant Pot on the saute function. Add the onions and garlic to the pot. Cook for 2-3 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the chicken breasts, chicken broth, Better than Bouillon, taco seasoning, and tomato paste to the Instant Pot.
  • Close the pot and seal. Place the Instant Pot on Manual > High Pressure Cooking for 10 minutes.
  • Allow the steam to naturally release for 10 minutes instead of performing a quick release.
  • Remove the lid. Remove the chicken from the pot and shred using a knife and fork.
  • Return the chicken to the pot. Place the Instant Pot on the saute function.
  • Add the corn, beans, Rotel, and lime juice. Stir to combine. Allow the soup to cook for 3-4 minutes until the corn and beans have softened some.
  • Serve in soup bowls. Top with tortilla strips, cilantro, and shredded cheese.



  • Additional topping ideas: sliced avocado, reduced-fat sour cream, plain, non-fat Greek yogurt (protein sour cream replacement), guacamole, jalapenos.
  • If you prefer to use store-bought taco seasoning, use 1/4-1/2 of the packet.
  • Cooking time noted includes the estimated time for the Instant Pot to come to pressure.
  • If your soup is too salty you can dilute it with small doses of water.
  • If you want to make the soup keto friendly, omit the beans and corn. Top with Parmesan Cheese Crisps or pork rinds.
