Instant Pot Jalapeño Lime Chicken Soup

AS AN AMAZON ASSOCIATE I EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES

This Instant Pot jalapeño lime chicken soup is beyond flavorful! The spicy broth has hearty additions of hominy, corn, and shredded chicken. Put this all together in less than an hour!

I am on a SPICY kick lately.

Which is why this jalapeño lime chicken soup is perfect for those of you that like an extra kick!

I never thought I’d be the person to throw in a whole chopped jalapeño with SEEDS.

We all know the seed of any pepper is where the heat is but man, lately, all I want is heat.

I feel that when there is no heat in the dish, it’s boring and there is something missing.

This is a complete 180 from several years ago where I refused to eat anything spicy.

Besides how spicy this jalapeño lime chicken soup is, I love that it is made in the Instant Pot with shredded rotisserie chicken.

Soups made in the Instant Pot are the best, but soup in general is starting to climb up the ranks as my favorite meals.

How spicy is this jalapeño lime chicken soup?

It is as spicy as you want to make it.

Like I said, I threw in a whole jalapeño with the seed but if you don’t want it that spicy, you can remove the seeds.

How would I make this without a rotisserie chicken?

You would cook the chicken with the soup in the Instant Pot.

Once the soup is done cooking, you’d shred the chicken.

What if I can’t find hominy?

Then you can just omit it since there is also corn in this already.

Can I make this in the slow cooker?

Yes, definitely.

I would cook on low for 4-6 hours and high for 2-4 hours.

Either cook the chicken in the soup (if you don’t have a rotisserie chicken), or cook the soup base and add the shredded chicken in before eating.

Can I make this on the stovetop?

Yes.

I would simmer the raw chicken in the soup until it’s cooked through then shred it and add it back into the soup.

If you’re using rotisserie chicken, then add the shredded chicken after the soup is done cooking.

In general, I would simmer the soup for 30 minutes or longer to let the flavors really develop.

What are the general flavors of this jalapeño lime chicken soup?

Spicy and tangy.

The tang comes from the lime but it’s not overpowering.

Can I use any other meat in this soup?

I could see ground turkey being a substitute for the shredded chicken but only if you have to.

Chicken is the best meat in this soup.

Can I freeze this?

This soup would freeze well because there’s no cream or milk in it.

How long can this be stored in the fridge?

We kept ours for 7 days just fine.

We kept it in an airtight glass container.

Just finished eating this dish. Absolutely a winner topped with fresh cilantro and lime. Husband “yum-yum” the whole bowl - and the second bowl. Thank you.

I didn't have hominy, so I threw in a little brown rice. It turned out great! Quite spicy, but delicious. I wished it made more; next time I would double it (table for two, duh). Thanks!

This was delicious! I did not have a rotisserie chicken so I found a recipe for instant pot rotisserie chicken and I made that and proceeded to make this recipe. Absolutely delicious!

This soup is a MUST!!! I’m not a recipe follower, so I changed it up by adding cilantro, and green onion. I also cut the broth in half and added a can of green enchilada sauce. Also 3 jalapeños for extra kick. I made this for a group at a party. Went over great. So many ways to make it your own too. LOVE this recipe.
