Tastiest Taco Soup From The Instant Pot!

Amy Herald


This is my first ever Instant Pot recipe! I got this contraption for Christmas, but after opening the box and looking at the confounded thing, I thought I'd never figure out how to use it! Also the recipes in the book that came with it looked terrible to me, but, I'm no quitter! So after reading the manual and watching a Youtube tutorial or two, also a week of putting together a few new recipes as well as revamping a few of my old family recipes for the pot, I think I've got this! It was a lot of fun and the soup turned out amazing! Be sure to check back for more yummy instant pot meals!
