  1. Combine potatoes, chicken stock, onion, carrots, celery, flour, salt, and pepper in a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)). Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove lid. Stir in corn and turkey ham. Add Cheddar cheese; stir until melted.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • Dice potatoes into smaller pieces for a creamier soup.
  • Bouillon, chicken soup base, or milk may be substituted for the chicken stock.
  • Processed cheese food (such as Velveeta®) or any of your preferred cheese can be substituted for the Cheddar cheese.
  • You can use 1 packet country gravy mix in place of the flour.
  • If potatoes are not done to your liking, cook on High/Soup setting (not pressure)for a few minutes more.

My first test with the Instant Pot and I'm ecstatic about the results! I might use a little less pepper, but this will definitely go into the rotation. I appreciated the reviewer who noted that ...

I've made it several times. It's great!!

Even my picky family loved this.

The title definitely needs to be changed to disclude "chowder". This is a SOUP, as written, not a chowder! And with that being said- I was looking for a chowder recipe to make in my Instant Pot,...

This was very good. It was my first attempt at using the Instant Pot so wasn't sure how it would turn out. At first I was disappointed because it did not look like soup. I took another review...
