Instant Pot® Mexican Chicken Soup -www.instantlydelicious.com

I have been on a soup kick lately.  At this time of year, the days can be cool, and like today, they can be a bit hot. Mexican Chicken Soup is perfect for both warm or cool days and a great end-to summer/start-to-fall entree.  Mexican Chicken Soup prepared in an Instant Pot® quick and easy to put together and can be on the table in about 30 minutes, so it is great for a busy weeknight – my favorite! My kids love when I have a bowl of tortilla chips on the table – they just crush them and add to their soup bowls.

This time of year makes me a little sad.  My kids are growing up so fast, and late August always means that a new school year is right around the corner.  For some reason (and it happens every year), I tire of caring for my garden.  Maybe it is because September marks the end of our summer fun.  Maybe I am gearing up for busier days of school and work commitments, or maybe I am just ready for the change in seasons. That said, I usually grow an abundance of basil in my garden.  I diligently water it all summer and then for some reason, I just stop.  This year, I decided I was not going to kill off my basil before I could use it up.  This Instant Pot® Tomato Basil Sauce uses half a cup of basil.  I made a significant dent in my plant and feel so good about making something so delicious for a late-summer dinner.  Tomato Basil sauce is easy, fresh, and fast and it translates really well to cooking in the Instant Pot.
