Instant Pot Chicken Enchilada “Stoup”
High in protein, thick like chili
A word adopted from Rachael Ray: Stoup
If at any point you followed Rachael Ray you may have heard her coin a few made up words in the kitchen. My favorite of all being stoup which means it’s a soup but it’s thick like a chili. Thank you Instant Pot® for this fast Chicken Enchilada “Stoup.”
This is perfect for post bariatric surgery patients because a dense textured protein based meal without liquid involved will fill up the stomach pouch with a smaller protein and keep you full for longer. It’s the key to great hunger control!
This is why there are so many chili recipes on the site (a few linked below) and why several soups on the site are made to be thick. My best tip is to always use a slotted spoon when serving recipes like this. You can get the moisture in the meats by cooking in broth, but avoid having a high liquid content in your meal.

For more bariatric friendly Instant Pot recipes, I created an eBook with several recipes and tips on how to cook meat from fresh or frozen. Many recipes for pressure cookers include starches like potatoes or rice. These recipes are focused on proteins and vegetables for weight loss surgery friendly meal plans.
