If you haven’t purchased yourself a pressure cooker yet, get on it! This recipe is just another example of how easy it is to make a delicious meal in minutes!

After I shared my Quick and Easy Taco Soup recipe I had so many of you tell me that you always toss in some Hidden Valley® Ranch Seasoning at the end. I was very intrigued, so I thought I would give it a try myself.



The secret ingredient to this Pressure Cooker Chicken Taco Soup is the Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning! It makes the soup so flavorful!

Not only is this recipe quick and easy, because it basically contains all the pantry staples that my we store as a family, but I can also quickly pick everything up at Walmart, which makes my life so much easier. I found this Hidden Valley Ranch seasoning and salad dressing mix in the salad dressing isle of Walmart near the end of the isle by the other seasoning and sauce mix packets.

I love that I can use the shaker can over and over again! It’s perfect for dips, dressings and adding a little more zip to my Instant Pot Chicken Taco Soup!

Just toss all the ingredients in the pressure cooker and your Chicken Taco Soup will be ready in minutes!

How To Make Chicken Taco Soup:

I just tossed everything into my Instant Pot, even the raw chicken, taco seasoning and ranch seasoning. I hit the soup button and walked away.

30 minutes later I pulled out the chicken and it practically fell apart as I was shredding it with two forks.

    Yum! I just converted this to a Weight Watcher freestyle recipe and it's only 1 point a serving. I can't wait to try it. (And I was sure to give you credit.)
    1. You would need to add more water, but once the pot says "burn" you'll need to remove all the contents of the bowl, scrap any burned bits off the bottom and start over. I've never had this recipe read burn before, so make sure your valve is closed so no excess moisture escapes while cooking.
    1. Since there are so many other things in this recipe other than beans, you'll be better off using either canned beans or already cooked beans (that were made in the IP). If you use IP cooked beans, make sure to add extra water to make up for the liquid inside the canned beans.

    Walmart as well as Lowe's sells a MICROWAVE pressure cooker. Everything may be cooked in it and in such a short time. This has taken the place of my slow cooker.Will have to try your recipe for taco soup using it. Sounds good.

    I made this for some friends who came over to watch the game Sunday night. Added a TBS of cayenne, and garnished it with cilantro and sour cream.

    From the pictures, it looks like there's more liquid then what's just going to be in the cans of undrained veggies. Does there need to be water or broth added? If so, how much? Thank you!
    1. There will be plenty of liquid from the cans to let it come to pressure. You could use frozen chicken in this recipe, just add an extra couple minutes to cook time.

        Mine didn’t come to pressure. Tried again after I added a 1/2 cup water. Didn’t work again. Had to pull out the sauce and put it on the stove while I pressure cooked the chicken on it’s own. *oops just r Alize’s I used tomato paste (6oz) and i used 1.5 lb of frozen chicken. Maybe those 2 differences were the problem?
