This quick and easy Pressure Cooker Taco Soup recipe is an easy weeknight dinner full of Tex-Mex flavors!
I’ve got an awesome pressure cooker recipe for you today that I adapted from our popular slow cooker taco soup recipe. Now, instead of my favorite taco soup taking hours to cook I can make Pressure Cooker Taco Soup in just 30 minutes! The ingredients are simple ground beef, onion, ranch dressing mix, taco seasoning, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, black beans, and corn. I can get everything in one quick trip to my local Giant Landover.
When I was at the store last weekend grabbing everything I needed to make dinner for Monday night I also spotted these Dr Pepper cans! Wonder Woman is my girl and I’m so pumped about the new Wonder Woman movie that will be in theaters on June 2nd. It’s just a couple of weeks before my birthday so I’ve already made my husband promise me a date night with dinner and a movie. In the meantime, I’m stocking up on Dr Pepper because right now you can find a national on-pack offer that gives you $5 towards a Fandango movie ticket with the purchase of 2 participating Dr Pepper 12-packs, 24 packs, 8 pack 12oz or 7.5oz can (vaild 4/1/17 and 5/31/17). You can find out all of the details on how to get your $5 movie certificate and the offer rules HERE). If that wasn’t enough, Giant Landover is running a sweepstakes and you can text WONDER to 737737 for a chance to win a $20 concession reward code from Fandango (valid 5/22/17-6/18/17). This birthday date night is getting better all the time! 😉
I guess you can tell how excited I am to see Wonder Woman on the big screen at last! Maybe it’s because I feel like I’m a bit of a wonder woman myself. I mean, I’m not out fighting bad guys but some days I feel like it takes superpowers to get everything done. That’s why my Pressure Cooker Taco Soup is one of my go-to recipes for a busy weeknight…or weekend night for that matter! Now that both kids are playing soccer it seems like we’re always running someone to some field somewhere. Lots of nights I have to try to be in two places at once with the kids playing on different fields. By the time we get home we have just enough time to eat a quick dinner before everyone has to get showers and head to bed.
My pressure cooker is kind of like Wonder Woman’s lasso (is my nerdiness showing?). I can throw everything into my pressure cooker, snap on the lid and have the pressure cooker taco soup ready in 15 minutes! That’s pretty amazing. I usually brown the ground beef on a Sunday afternoon (no games that day!) so I can use it during the week but if you give yourself another 15 minutes you can brown the ground beef and sauté the onions right in the pressure cooker and then toss in the other ingredients and cook on HIGH for 15 minutes. Either way you’ve got an amazing dinner in 30 minutes or less. I sprinkle a little cilantro and cheddar cheese on top and serve it with tortilla chips to scoop up all of the taco goodness with. Everyone in my house loves it!
Pressure Cooker Taco Soup
- Set electric pressure cooker to BROWN and cook the ground beef until it is browned.
