Happy October! Fall is in full swing, at least that is what I hear. This Instant Pot Beef enchilada Soup is the perfect Fall dish…even though it is 86 and humid here I am pretending it is fall outside my window.
Instant Pot Time
If you know me you know I am a big fan of my Instant Pot. You can cook just about anything in there from breakfast, like this Oatmeal, to amazing pasta dishes like this Chicken Alfredo dish to Cheesecake. I have to tell you though this soup is one of my most favorite dishes I have made in my Instant Pot.
This soup was ready in under a hour but tastes like it simmered all day…and it is AMAZING!
All in One Pot
To start with I browned the seasoned meat and then added in the onions, peppers, garlic and green chilies. Just like if you were using a stock pot on the stove you are building flavor upon flavor upon more flavor. Once the onions begin to soften I added in the enchilada sauce and beef stock and let it go.
Once it is done the meat will be super tender and all the flavors will be coming together to create a delicious soup. I added in some cream cheese and shredded cheese to make it creamy and also little thicker. If you want to leave the cheese out could, just know the soup will be more of a broth than a thick stew.
In less than a hour you have created a delicious soup all in your Instant Pot.
Chicken works too
If you are not a fan of beef you could use chicken. Follow the directions just adjust cooking time to 25 minutes instead of 35 minutes. You could also use a green enchilada sauce with the chicken, but the red is delicious as well.
Pork would also work, cook for 30 minutes.
KETO/Low Carb Friendly
This soup is perfect for anyone and everyone, but for those following KETO/Low Carb this soup is only 6 net carbs per serving. It is rich, creamy and very filling making it a perfect dish for dinner.
My dad who is not on low carb also LOVED it… it really is a treat for everyone.
