Chicken Tuscan Kale & Bean Soup (Instant Pot OR Crockpot)
In case you haven't noticed, the instant pot is still totally rocking my world. I loved that last night I could pop that bad boy open and in an hour have amazing homemade soup with NO preserved ingredients. I've made this recipe lots of times in the crockpot but have been working on my Instant Pot conversions and made this one perfect the first time.

1 quart chicken broth 2 cups, dried, 15 bean soup mix (or great white northern beans), no need to soak, just rinse) 2 Medium carrots, roughly chopped 2 ribs celery, roughly chopped ½ large yellow onion, roughly chopped 2 tsp onion salt 2 large handfuls of kale 2 cloves of garlic minced 20oz frozen chicken
