  • 1 Pound Lean Ground Turkey
  • 1 TBSP. Olive Oil
  • 2 TBSP. Chili Powder I used taco seasoning
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 1 Red Pepper Chopped
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1/2 tsp. Pepper
  • 2 tsp. Cumin
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Chipotle Pepper Powder less if you want it mild
  • 1 Can Pinto Beans use any beans you like
  • 1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 14 oz Can Crushed Tomatoes or Stewed Tomatoes
  • 2 to 3 TBSP. Chopped Onion for garnish
  • 2 TBSP. Chopped Cilantro for garnish


  • Press Saute on Instant Pot and set to Normal Setting.
    Once screen says “HOT” add Olive Oil to Instant Pot.
    Add Ground Turkey and Chopped Onion and Red Pepper to Instant Pot and cook till onion is Soft and Turkey is Browned. About 5 Minutes.
    Add Chili Powder or Taco Seasoning, Salt and Pepper,Cumin, and Garlic Powder and stir till combined and cook till fragrant. Add Chicken Broth and Crushed tomatoes and Beans. Stir to combine.
    Put Lid on Instant Pot and turn Valve to SEAL. Press Cancel on Instant Pot then Press the Manual Pressure Cook Button and Set time to 10 Minutes. When cook time is complete do a quick release of pressure. Remove lid on Instant Pot. Press Cancel on Instant Pot. Then Press the Sautés Button and Set to Low setting. Use a Potato masher to smash up some of the beans in the chili to help with the thickening process. Let the chili simmer for 40 Minutes or until desired thickness. I like it that so a fork will basically stand on end without falling over. That is an easy way to gauge it. Stir once and a while to gauge thickness.
    Top with garnish of chopped onion and cilantro.
