Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 cup Onion Finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup Carrots Roughly chopped or Cut into round slices
  • 1/2 cup Celery Thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup Zucchini Roughly chopped
  • 1/3 cup Corn Frozen
  • 1/4 cup Green beans Frozen
  • 2 cloves Garlic Finely minced
  • 1 can Diced tomatoes with green chilies 14.5 oz. can
  • 1 can Tomato sauce 15 oz. can, No salt added
  • 3.5 cups Vegetable broth Low sodium
  • 1 can Red kidney beans 15 oz. can, Drained and rinsed
  • 1 can Great Northern Beans 15 oz. can, Drained and rinsed, Or black beans
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 2-3 tbsp Taco seasoning
  • 1 1/4 cup Small pasta Uncooked, I used Ditalini but you can also use small shells or small macaroni
  • Toppings of your choice E.g. Cilantro, Jalapeno slices, Avocado slices, Tortilla chips, Lime or lemon juice, Shredded cheese

Instructions

  • Turn Instant pot to “Saute”mode and heat oil.
  • Add onion, carrots, celery, zucchini, corn, green beans, garlic and saute for about 2 minutes until vegetables are partially softened.
  • Add diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, broth, kidney beans, Northern beans, salt, pepper, taco seasoning, uncooked pasta.
  • Mix until combined. 
  • Put the lid on and turn up the the valve to “Sealing.” Select “Manual” mode and set the timer for 5 minutes.
  • When the cook time is over, turn the valve to “Venting” and do a quick pressure release. 
  • Remove lid and stir the soup. Cook soup, uncovered, on "Saute" mode for a little longer if you want the vegetables and pasta to be even softer. 
  • Sprinkle toppings of your choice and enjoy!

Notes

  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served immediately but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days. However, please note that pasta texture will change and become very soft since it has a tendency to soak up liquid/broth.
