For me, soup is the ultimate comfort food. It’s warm, it’s filling, and it makes you feel better when you’re under the weather. What’s not to love? But if you don’t have hours to let the soup simmer on the stovetop, you can still serve a piping hot bowl of the stuff in a flash without resorting to canned soups.

Easy and Delicious Instant Pot Soup Recipes
1. The Best Spicy Chicken Enchilada Soup
This Chicken Enchilada Soup is hearty, spicy and so filling thanks to the addition of quinoa.
As far as soups go this one is quite hearty – almost chili-like. It’s loaded with quinoa, beans, corn, etc that absorb a lot of the liquid. If you prefer a more brothy soup, feel free to add another cup or so of stock at the end.
This Instant Pot soup recipe just only requires a few minutes of prep to make, in the instant pot or slower cooker, then sit back and enjoy!
2. Easy Beef and Barley Soup (Instant Pot or Slow Cooker)
Tender beef, good-for-you veggies, and hearty barley come together in this healthy, comforting Beef and Barley Soup.
This instant pot soup recipe of beef barley isn’t just some boring old soup. I’m talking about the kind of soup that hits all the perfect warm and cozy notes with spoonfuls of flavorful broth, tender chunks of beef, veggies, and tender barley. It’ll stick to your ribs, give your insides a big hug, and leave your belly extra happy.
3. Loaded Chunky Potato Soup Recipe (Instant Pot)
What could be more comforting than a steaming bowl of Loaded Chunky Potato Soup? Nothing, that’s what. It’s ready in 15 minutes.
Loaded chunky potato soup is one of life’s most popular comfort foods. It’s all I can think about as we welcome fall and nights start to cool off. This soup is creamy, slightly chunky, full of flavor, and topped with all the best garnishes. Definitely amazing – even more, amazing with a few fresh slices of sourdough bread. Lately, I have been cutting up sourdough to make homemade croutons – then putting those on top as well.
4. A Family Favorite Cheddar Cheese Broccoli Potato Soup
Cheddar Cheese Broccoli and Potato Soup is an easy crowd-pleasing meal in my family. Who would possibly complain about cheese, bacon, potatoes, and broccoli all served up in a creamy soup? Normally this soup requires several steps, maintenance, and almost an hour of cooking time. Not anymore when you make this soup in the Instant Pot! Or add a big dose of broccoli, like in this Cheddar Broccoli Potato Soup. The bacon is optional, but is it really? Everything is better with bacon!
5. Pressure Cooker Chunky Sweet Potato and Cheese Soup
Personally, sweet potatoes rock my socks, so this Chunky Sweet Potato and Cheese Soup are on my menu for this week. Yum.
A creamy, chunky sweet potato cheese soup loaded with tender chunks of sweet potatoes, russet potatoes, corn, and bacon. Cooking the potatoes on the steamer keeps them chunky and firm giving the soup a great texture.
I love the bright orange pop of color the sweet potatoes gave the soup. If you’re trying to get your family to like sweet potatoes, this is a great way to do it.
6. Low Calories Un-Stuffed Cabbage Roll Soup
When you’re watching your carbs but craving comfort food, make Un-Stuffed Cabbage Roll Soup. It’s seriously delicious.
If you’ve had a reluctant family member not ready to embrace a sugar-free and/or low-carb lifestyle, try comforting recipes like this that they won’t even notice is grain-free and healthy! They will hopefully realize it’s not that hard to give up processed carbs and sugar.
7. Low Carb Loaded Cauliflower Soup
Here’s another option for the low-carbers: Loaded Cauliflower Soup. It’s as flavorful as loaded potato soup but without all the unwanted carbs.
Check out this Instant Pot Low Carb Loaded Cauliflower Soup, it was so easy in my Instant Pot.
Don’t be fooled, just because this soup is healthy, doesn’t mean it is not full of flavor and goodness. The bacon, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese give the soup lots of flavor, that the kids will love!

This soup is so healthy and hearty, it is handy to have some in the freezer whenever you don’t feel like cooking.
9. Slow Cooker Italian Tortellini Soup Recipe
So you’ll have to wait a while since this Tortellini Soup recipe uses the Instant Pot’s slow cooker function, but it’s well worth the wait. The sausage, onion, celery, and garlic cooking together will make your mouth water.
Not only does the slow cooker create a broth for this tortellini soup that tastes flavorful and ultimately craveable, but the perfumed scent of sausage, onion, celery, and garlic that wafts from the kitchen as it cooks will also have you wishing you could give that lid on the slow cooker just a crack to dip a spoon in for juuuuuust a bite for taste testing.

Make the most of that springtime asparagus with this deliciously smooth Cream of Asparagus Soup.
