If you love a thick, hearty soup, you'll love this Instant Pot Ham & Corn Chowder! Cooking soup in an electric pressure cooker makes it taste like you slaved over the stove all day, even though it took about an hour to make!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 50 mins
Total Time 1 hr
Course Soup
Servings 6 servings


  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion about 1/2 onion
  • 3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 14- ounce cans sweet corn
  • 2 cups cubed ham
  • 2 cups cubed potatoes
  • 2 cups half-and-half


  • Turn your Instant Pot on to "saute." Add the butter and let it melt.
  • Once the butter is melted, add the onion. Cook the onion, stirring frequently with a nylon or wooden spoon, until it turns translucent (3-5 minutes).
  • Add the flour, and quickly whisk to form a thick paste.
  • Pour the chicken broth into the Instant Pot, and whisk to combine.
  • Add the corn (undrained), ham, and potatoes.
  • Cover and lock the Instant Pot.
  • Press "cancel," then press "soup." Set for normal time on high pressure.
  • When the Instant Pot is done cooking, let it slowly release pressure for 5 minutes, then quick-release the rest of the pressure.
  • When you can safely remove the lid of the Instant Pot, open it and add the half-and-half. Stir to combine.
  • Cover the Instant Pot (do not lock), and keep it on the "keep warm" setting until the half-and-half is heated through.
  • Serve immediately.
