How To Cook The Best Instant Pot Chili

At this point, if you need to drain the turkey and return it to the pressure cooker.

Tip
  • If you purchase a lean cut of ground turkey, you will not need to drain the meat.

Step 2: Add the tomato sauce, beans, broth, tomatoes, chili powder, and black pepper. Lock the lid onto the pot and close the pressure-release valve.

Step 3: Select Manual and make sure the pressure setting is set to High and cook time is 10 minutes.

Step 4: When the chili is done cooking, allow for a natural release of pressure to depressurize.

Serve: We love to add shredded Cheddar cheese to our chili. It enhances the flavor. We also break up saltine crackers and mix it in.
