Tortilla Soup – Pressure Cooker

This recipe is adapted from the traditional tortilla soup recipe on this site.

I eliminated the water because the pressure cooker does not lose as much from evaporation.

There is no need to pre-cook the chicken when you use a pressure cooker.

If you double this recipe, it will not fit safely in an 8 quart pressure cooker. If you are using pre-cooked chicken, add it after pressure cooking so you will have enough space for all the liquids. If you use raw chicken, leave out half the broth and stir in the remaining broth after pressure cooking.
