"It doesn't get easier than this! Brown some meat, then toss in the rest of the ingredients and hit start!

Instant Pot Turkey Cheeseburger Soup
Cheeseburger soup is a classic, comfort-food dish. Why not make it leaner without sacrificing any flavor by using ground turkey? Take it from reviewer Stacey Frost who says, "My only complaint is my husband can't stay out of it. It is very good. A lot less calories than an actual cheeseburger and super filling. Flavor is very good. We're usually not fans of ground turkey — or any turkey for that matter — and this was the best ground turkey recipe ever."
