It doesn't get easier than this! Brown some meat, then toss in the rest of the ingredients and hit start! Feel free to adjust the heat level by adding more chipotle peppers and/or adobo sauce. The cocoa powder and cinnamon are ideas I got from my favorite chili seasoning available at a local spice shop - they really transform the dish! I like to top this with sour cream, green onion and shredded smoked cheddar.

  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Heat olive oil over high heat and brown ground turkey until crumbly, 3 to 4 minutes. Add onion and jalapeno and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes. Add tomatoes, kidney beans, tomato sauce, chipotle pepper, adobo sauce, and seasoning mix. Mix to combine, scraping up any browned bits off the bottom of the pot. Close and lock the lid.

  • Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 20 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Stir chili and adjust salt, if desired. Serve with your favorite toppings.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute ground beef or chicken if you prefer.

You can freeze leftover canned chipotle peppers in ice cube trays for future use.

Followed the recipe, but the timing seemed off. After release, the chilli was more like soup. I ended up turning the saute on low and cooking it down. Read More

PRETTY SPICY! could cut out the chipotle or the jalapeno pepper. But definitely a lively dish. And warming on a cold winter night. Used leftover diced Tgiving turkey instead of ground turkey. And black beans. chili beans. Read More

This was delicious! So quick and easy to make. I left out the coriander (simply because I didn't have any) and jalapeno and I replaced the chili in adobo with a couple of tablespoons of Trader Joe's Italian Bomba Hot Pepper Sauce. It was plenty spicy (and I like spice) and super flavorful and yummy. Will be making this again. Read More

I am always looking for non-beef recipes to make in the new Instant Pot. Tried a few other turkey chili ones and this is our favorite so far. Thanks! Read More

Loved it. Used 1 lb. Ground chicken and 1 lb. Ground Turkey. I don't like spicy chili so left out the Adobe and jalapeno. We will definitely make it again. Read More

Followed the recipe to the letter except I used black beans instead of light red Kidney Beans. They pretty much disappeared. Next time I would add more Cumin to the spice mix and maybe try adding some Masa to thicken it up a bit. Needs more salt and possibly a pound and a half of turkey instead of just a pound but a solid place to start for homemade chili. Read More

I used two chipotle peppers out of the can with the adobo sauce...that's plenty spicy! Good thing I didn't use any more! But jeez, the flavors in this chili amazing! If you want any more for leftovers then definitely double the recipe. Read More
