Quick Mexican Chicken Tortilla Soup

The pressure cooker I used is an Instant Pot pressure cooker and as such it is super easy to have this soup made in less than 20 minutes. This soup is absolutely delicious and you will love how fast it can be made. I did cheat and use tortilla strips that are sold in my supermarket but if you have stale corn tortillas you can make your own, I was just very LAZY this day.
