Delicious Instant Pot chowder soup

Maybe you have some leftover shrimp cocktail, or a Tupperware container full of your side dish of corn floating around in your refrigerator? Well just by adding a few more fresh ingredients to the mix you have an entirely new meal in no time.

Yummy Bacon

This recipe starts off by cooking up some thick-cut, cherrywood smoked bacon by using the saute setting on your Instant Pot. Mine usually takes about 7-10 minutes to crisp up. Then I use my slotted Bamboo Spurtle to remove the bacon to drain on a paper towel.

Next, you will add your pepper, garlic, and onion to the bacon grease you created in your Instant Pot and saute for an additional 5 minutes. Then you will add in your fresh tomatoes and corn; whether it be canned, fresh off the cob, or even leftovers.

Cancel the saute setting on your Instant Pot and cover your sauteed veggies with the chicken stock and old bay seasoning. Place the lid on your Instant Pot, and set it to High-Pressure Manual Cook for 10 minutes. While cooking you may want to make sure your shrimp have the tails removed. Especially if they were previously from a shrimp cocktail, or if you are using frozen peeled and deveined make sure they are completely defrosted, by placing them in a water bath.

Once the Instant Pot cooking time is complete, you can quick vent the steam, remove the lid and stir in your shrimp and cream while hot. Then serve up with a warm side of cheddar biscuits or jalapeno corn muffins which are very tasty with this soup.
