Cover your instant pot and lock in place. Make sure the valve is on “sealing”. Set the manual button to one minute on high.

While the pot heats up, melt the ¼ cup of butter in a dish in the microwave. Whisk in the flour until the mixture is creamy and set aside. 

When the time is up on the Instant Pot, let it sit for 5 minutes and move the valve to venting. Remove the lid when you can.

Turn the Instant Pot back on to the sauté function. Whisk one cup of the broth from the soup into the butter and flour mixture. Then, add the whole mixture into the Instant Pot. Stir until the soup thickens. Stir in the milk until it heats through. Stir in the cheddar cheese until it melts. Then, add in the salt and pepper.
