Have you joined The Church of Instant Pot yet" I'm kidding of course, but some people are so into their Instant Pots that it does sometimes seem almost like a religion. I do like the Instant Pot a lot, but I also think it's not for everything, and lots of Instant Pot recipes can also be made on the stovetop if you have just a bit more time.
But I do love the way the Instant Pot intensifies flavors and keeps the colors vivid in the food, and it's the spicy Ground Ancho Chile Pepper that gives this Instant Pot (or Stovetop) Low-Carb Taco Soup that beautiful dark red color. If you don't have Ancho chile, your soup might be a little lighter in color with regular Chili Powder, but it will still be delicious. I did use a generous amount of both Ancho and regular chili powder for a spicy result, but if you're not that much into spicy foods, just cut it down a bit.
I adapted this recipe from the popular Easy Taco Soup recipe on the blog, and if you'd like to make this on the stove just use these ingredients but consult that recipe for the timing for stovetop cooking. To cut down the carbs, I used a chopped Poblano chile pepper and a chopped red bell pepper to replace the beans. If you're not a low-carb eater, you can cut down on those peppers and add some beans to the Instant Pot version if you'd like.
