This Instant Pot turkey chili is so delicious, easy to make, and great for the whole family!


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 15 oz. can of crushed tomatoes (or tomato sauce)
  • 1 15 oz. can petite diced tomatoes (I sometimes use all crushed tomatoes because my kids don’t like diced)
  • 12 cans chili beans, or pinto beans
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 Tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/41/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 12 cups water or chicken broth


  1. Select Instant Pot setting “Sauté”
  2. Add ground turkey and onion to pot, cooking and stir until meat is brown, onions are translucent, and moisture is mostly evaporated. The turkey I buy is generally pretty lean and I don’t find it necessary to drain the meat, but use your judgement here
  3. Mix in tomatoes, beans, and seasoning
  4. Add up to 2 cups of water or beef broth to reach desired consistency
  5. Place lid on Instant Pot and select “beans/chili”
  6. Toggle time setting to pressure cook for 12 minutes
  7. Leave in pot on the “keep warm” setting up to 2 hours until ready to serve.
  8. Enjoy!
