Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great recipe for the InstantPot!! Love this recipe. I made it in my InstantPot today, browned hamburger on sauté mode, drained hamburger and put it back in pot. I then added all the other ingredients, set InstantPot for 10 minutes (soup setting) quick release.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn't wow me. The soup was yummy, filled me up, and I liked the addition of the sweet potatoes! I probably won't make again, it just didn't wow me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wasn't Sure, but loved it! I'm not a huge Sweet Potato person. I made this not really knowing if it was something that I would like. Turned out, I LOVED it! Good and healthy!
