Instant Pot Soup Recipes

February can bring harsh cold weather. So, you’ll need some meals that will help you fight the freeze. There is nothing better than a piping hot bowl of soup to warm you from head to toe and inside out. I have some wonderful Instant Pot Soups for you this month. You’ll find my Tomato Soup, Taco Soup, and Chicken Soup on this February Meal Plan, to name a few.

Tomato Soup

I have a weakness for tomato soup. It has to be my absolute favorite soup. I’ve made my Instant Pot Tomato Soup recipe to be easy and to satisfy that craving for the amazing comforting flavor of tomato soup. I infused this soup with basil and a touch of honey, which makes this recipe extra special. Tomato soup always requires some bread to dip in it so, I always make some crusty bread to serve with it.

Taco Soup

This Instant Pot Taco Soup recipe is filled with loads of festive flavor. I use a special blend of spices to give this soup its big taco taste. You’ll love that I made this soup super hearty by loading it with ground beef, three types of beans, fire-roasted tomatoes, corn, and green chilis. We always add our favorite taco toppings to each bowl of this soup.

Chicken Soup

My Instant Pot Chicken Soup will not only warm you up, but it will help you fight those nasty bugs that we all pick up during the winter months. I make this chicken soup recipe using a whole chicken, wholesome vegetables, and wonderful herbs and spices. This soup is big on flavor and comfort.

All of the pasta recipes in my meal plans are easy to make, tastes delicious, and will be loved by the entire family.

Serve it with a side of my homemade garlic bread, and you’re golden! A perfect pasta dish for any day of the week.

Taco Pasta

Add some festive Mexican flair to pasta night with my Instant Pot Taco Pasta recipe. I use taco seasonings to give the ground beef and pasta its unmistakable taco flavor. We like to top each plate of pasta with all our favorite toppings including sour cream, shredded cheese, and cilantro.

Cheeseburger Pasta

Looking for a kid favorite? My Instant Pot Cheeseburger Pasta is a must! It delivers all the flavor of a cheeseburger in a pasta dish. I season the ground beef to perfection and load this pasta dish up with copious amounts of cheddar cheese. We like to top ours with bacon crumbles for an unbeatable kid-friendly pasta dish.
