You will need an Instant Pot for this simple yummy soup.
Now you will need an Instant Pot for this soup recipe. I am using an 8 quart Instant pot but you can use a 6 quart.
I personally have an Instant Pot and so far I am loving it. You can find the Instant pot on sale here. It’s really changed dinner time around here.
Those days when I forget to take something out of the freezer is not a problem with my instant pot.
Usually I can take about 15 minutes gather my ingredients and still have dinner ready and waiting on my family! I used frozen chicken in this recipe and it still cooked super fast in my instant pot.

- Try swapping out the chicken for ground turkey or ground beef! Be sure to use beef broth instead of chicken broth. Yum!
- You can use rotisserie chicken and this recipe will only need to good in the Instant pot for only 5 minutes.
- Consider adding in more vegetables like red and green bell peppers.
- This recipe works great in your slow cooker. Just add your cream cheese at the end.

This recipe is so quick and easy! It doesn’t get any easier than using your instant pot! My family went crazy over this and we put it on our menu plan rotation. We like tortilla chips on top and extra cheese, onion, sour cream and more!
Sometimes instead of tortilla chips, I make a big pan of Cheddar Jalapeno Cornbread! This is so good crumbled on top and the extra heat from the jalapeno is just amazing! Either way you serve this recipe, it’s sure to be a hit! Let us know what your favorite toppings are!

Do you pour out the juice of the black beans or pour the whole can inside?
You can do either. I usually don’t drain mine but you can if you prefer them that way. Thank you!
Looks great. I’ll try it when our Texas summer he’ll is over.
One thing I never do is quick release any meat. If I let it NR say, 10 minutes, what effect will that have on the rest of the ingredients?
Can I use heavy whipping cream or evaporated milk instead of cream cheese
Love this recipe. So easy in the pressure cooker.
If you don’t have an Instant Pot how would you cook this on the stove?
Can you use a crockpot in how long to cook
