Leftover Turkey Chili

chiliWe bought an Instant Pot (IP) during a black Friday sale at Walmart (Canada) for just under $49 (how could I pass up a half off kind of deal??).    I’ve made a few beef stews up (just throwing this and that into it) and love it.  With Christmas just passed, I need to use up my leftover turkey so I’m attempting turkey chili.  Sure it’s not ground turkey, but I think it’ll be ok.  So here’s what I’ve done…

  Ingredients:

  • 2 med. onions, chopped
  • 2 chopped red peppers
  • 4 c. water
  • 1 bag of dried red kidney beans (you can use other kinds like pinto)
  • 3 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • about 3 c. chopped turkey
  • 2 large cans diced tomatoes (796 ml)

Preparation: Sauté onion and red pepper in the IP until softened. Rinse beans well and add to IP along with 4 c. water. Pressure cook for 30 min.  I used the meat/stew setting and decreased it to 30 min. from its 45 min. default. When cycle is done, carefully vent the IP.  Carefully remove lid and add remaining ingredients.  Give it a stir to mix everything up and pressure cook for another 30 min.
