**Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix
Instant Pot Method:
Press SAUTE. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add minced garlic, onions, and saute till the onions are soft and translucent.
Press CANCEL and add green and red bell peppers, sweet corn, diced tomatoes, black beans, tomato sauce, broth or water, and taco seasoning. Stir to combine, deglaze the pot ie make sure there is no food particle sticking to the pot to avoid burn alerts.*Note: I used homemade taco seasoning for this recipe but you can also use store brought taco seasoning mix packet.
Close the lid on the pot. Cook on “Manual/Pressure Cook” (HIGH) pressure for 6 minutes. Once the pot beeps, Allow 5 minutes of Natural Pressure Release and then quick release.
Add fresh cilantro/coriander leaves, lime Juice. Stir well to combine.
Taco Soup is ready to serve.
