One of my goals for this year is to introduce more Instant Pot recipes to the blog! We have loved using ours over the last year, but it took me a lot of experimenting with it to feel confident that I could share some of the recipes that we make in it. We use it often on Sundays for meal-prepping, and try to make a big batch of a healthy meal that we can break down into containers (these are our favorite) for lunches or a quick dinner when we’re busy with work. I also love using it for rice, I haven’t made rice on the stovetop since we purchased it! This recipe is for an easy and healthy turkey chili that would be great for meal prepping (I’ve had it for lunch everyday this week), but is quick enough to make for a weeknight dinner thanks to the speed of the Instant Pot!

  1. Turn the Instant Pot onto sauté mode, and add the olive oil, diced yellow onion, diced red onion, and minced garlic cloves to the pot. Sauté for 3-4 minutes until the onions soften.
  2. Add the ground turkey to the pot and continue to sauté for another 5 minutes, until turkey begins to brown.
  3. Season the mixture with chili powder, garlic power, onion powder, cumin, paprika, and salt and pepper.
  4. Turn off sauté mode and add to the pot: fire roasted tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, cannelloni beans, chopped green chilis, and tomato sauce. Stir to combine and place the lid on the Instant Pot, setting it on high pressure for 25 minutes.
  5. At the end of the cooking time, use a natural release and serve the chili hot with toppings of your choice (chopped red onions, scallions, sour cream, hot sauce and cheddar cheese are our favorites).
