Instant Pot Turkey Chili

I’m not a fan of beans. Like, I hate them. Blah! It’s a texture thing. I do enjoy a good beanless chili though and the one I threw together a few days ago turned out great. Bonus – I was able to do the entire thing in the RV!

Instant Pot Turkey Chili

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients:

  • 1lb ground turkey
  • 1 sweet potato, cubed
  • 2 cups baby carrots
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 can diced tomatoes
  • 1 can tomato sauce
  • 1.5 cups vegetable stock
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp chili powder

Directions:

  1. Set the instant pot to saute. Toss in the turkey and onions. Cook until the turkey begins to brown. (You can use olive oil to brown the turkey but I forgot ours at home and it was still delicious.)
  2. Throw in the rest of the ingredients. Change the instant pot from saute to manual. Seal the lid and set for 9 minutes.
  3. When the timer dings, do a quick release. Serve over rice (or cornbread, mmmm!) and enjoy!

 

 

If you like a spicier chili, add in some red pepper. The vegetables can be changed around too. I used what I had on hand. Let me know what you think!

Our First RV Outing!!

Last weekend we were supposed to take Roxie out for her first overnight. Long story short, due to the Navy, the weekend didn’t go as planned (shocking, I know). We did still manage to get her out to a campsite where we had awesome family time.

On Saturday afternoon we headed to Sweetwater Summit Regional Park in Bonita, CA. We got to our campsite around 1630. After hooking up to power, the boys and dog headed to the park while I got started cooking dinner. I brought my Instant Pot and made turkey chili. I’ll post a recipe later because it turned out really well! They came back before dinner was ready and built a campfire and played on the bed. We enjoyed our delicious dinner sitting outside by the fire. Everyone really enjoyed themselves, except the dog who was a little freaked out about the whole situation. (She did enjoy the chili though.) After cleaning up, we roasted marshmallows and made s’mores. This was probably the best part of our evening. The air was cool but the fire was warm. We sat around (as much as a 20 month old will allow) and talked and ate and laughed. Perfect first evening in Roxie.

Any tips or ideas for taking your RV out in SoCal with a toddler?
