Instant Pot Chicken Posole

Chicken Posole is a cross between a soup and a stew, posole is a classic slow-cooked Mexican dish.  It is quickly becoming one of my favorite dishes. I am a huge soup person.  My husband and my kids love soup as well. There is pretty much not a single soup that I have not cooked at one point or another. I am a soup connoisseur of sorts.  This instant Pot Chicken Posole is so delicious and this soup will stick to your bones.  Pair this with some cornbread and a delicious salad and call it dinner.
