Over the summer I have gotten away from my Insta Pot… particular reason, just did’nt think about it much. On of my co-workers…..…Hi Grace 🙂 has not one, but two Insta Pots, and she has given me some recipes that I am dying to try. Our conversation inspired me to bring my Insta pot out of hiding.

Those who follow our blog know that Tim loves his food spicy. I have learned to embrace spiciness and Insta Pot Salsa Verde Chicken Tortilla Soup gives that spice in a flash thanks to a pressure cooker.

Insta Pots are pressure cookers come of age. Mine combines a slow cooker and rice cooker, with a great sear feature that allows you to get a nice brown color to meat before finishing… either slow or in a flash.

Don’t worry about a pressure cooker exploding or blowing up…these are not your Mama’s stovetop canner units. The new countertop units are sleek and state of the art. Make sure you read the directions and safety instructions and you will not have any problems.

My Insta Pot is not a brand name pot. I bought a very cheap generic version at Aldi’s and it works perfectly. Maybe someday I will purchase a grander version, but for now my cheapy works great.

For this recipe, I tossed everything but the beans and corn in my pressure cooker for 10 minutes. After letting it release on it own for 10 minutes, I quick released the remaining pressure and added the corn and beans.
