There are so many different ways you can make this chili recipe. I’ll share this recipe I love, and I will also offer a few suggestions on how to change it up even more.
How to Make Turkey Chili in the Instant Pot
Heat the Instant Pot on saute mode. Once the reading says “HOT”, add the oil and the ground turkey.
Brown the turkey meat until just cooked through. Add in the chopped onion and cook for an additional2 minutes. Turn off the saute function.
Add the black beans, pinto beans, chili beans, diced tomatoes, garlic, sugar, and seasonings. Stir in the chicken broth.
Seal the lid and then manual cook for 15 minutes. Allow the Instant Pot to naturally release for 10 minutes and then carefully perform a manual release.
Once the pin has dropped, remove the lid and stir the contents. Scoop the chili into bowls and serve with your favorite toppings.
There are a ton of options and substitutions you can make with this recipe. Here are a few of my favorites.
CORN Not everyone likes corn in chili but it is a popular addition. Add a 15oz drained can of corn to the Instant Pot when adding the beans.
JALAPENO Kick the flavor up a notch by adding in a diced jalapeno when sautéing the onion.
GREEN CHILIS You can also add diced green chilis to this recipe for a little more of a southwestern flare. Add the green chili when adding the beans, garlic, and seasonings.
TOMATO PASTE If you want more of a tomato flavored base, add in a 6oz can of tomato paste and stir it in when adding the broth.
