I am a sucker for a good soup recipe, and not only is this Instant Pot Chicken Tortellini and Vegetable Soup delicious, but it is also one of those amazing and easy Instant Pot recipes that you’ll want to make over and over again.
This is a wonderful budget-friendly dinner recipe that is similar to your everyday chicken soup recipe. Adding in the tortellini and delicious fall vegetables takes this soup to the next level!
I also love making this soup in the fall to make sure we are getting all the added benefits of chicken noodle soup, but with even more flavor. Plus my kids love tortellini, so they are always excited for this soup.
If you love to dip things in your soup, I love serving some of either our easy homemade french bread, homemade pizza factory breadsticks, or sheet pan garlic breadsticks. They are all delicious and perfect for dipping!
