To Make Fiesta Chicken Soup: 

To make this a soup instead of just a chicken dish, you can add an additional 3 cups of vegetable or chicken broth.  Serve with tortilla strips or crackers.   You can also top with avocado, green onions, nonfat plain Greek yogurt, or fat-free sour cream, and cheese.  It is such a versatile choice that you’ll love adding to your routine!

    Looks great. I don’t have an Insta Pot, but I’ll make anyways.

    What kind of salsa do you use? Also, is the time provided based on thawed chicken?
