Mexican tortilla soup is always a fantastic meal when the weather gets cooler. This version also includes chicken and it's made in the Instant Pot which makes it a quick recipe to prepare. The flavors aren't over the top in this soup. It's a mild Mexican soup with corn, black beans, and fire-roasted tomatoes with green chilies. If you like a spicier soup, add some more seasoning like chili. A delicious, quick family meal for a weeknight dinner. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
