I love making Tortilla Soup because it’s an easy dump and go dinner that has minimal prep. My toddler’s also a fan because she loves playing using her spoon and eating soup. This is also a great recipe to have her help making with me because she can just dump in the ingredients and stir (and bonus when she “makes dinner” she’s way more interested in eating it!).

Recommended Toppings

The great thing about this soup is that it can be customized to make everyone happy. I’ll serve this soup with a bunch of toppings so everyone can customize their soup with their favorites. A few of our family’s favorite toppings are:

  • Tortilla Chips (we love to make our own healthier air fryer version!)
  • Jalapenos
  • Cotija Cheese or your favorite cheese

How to Store Leftovers

Once the soup is cooled, transfer leftovers to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 5 weeks. I recommend storing the soup separately from the toppings so it doesn’t get mushy.

How to Freeze Instant Pot Tortilla Soup

After the soup has completely cooled, transfer the soup to a freezer container or bag and freeze for up to 6 months. I don’t recommend freezing the toppings with the soup.

When you’re ready to eat, remove the soup from the freezer and store in the fridge for 24 hours before serving. After 24 hours, portion out the amount you want and microwave on 60 second increments until heated through.

Recipe Tips

  • While cook time for this recipe is only 3 minutes, it’ll take closer to 20-25 minutes to make because the Instant Pot will take a little longer to come to pressure with all the liquid.
  • You can add in extra chili powder or a can of diced chilis to give this recipe an extra kick of spice!
