Turkey Black Bean Chili

Here is an easy Instant Pot turkey black bean chili recipe. I used ground turkey and black beans instead of ground beef and kidney beans, for a healthier version of my regular Instant Pot gluten free chili. The turkey makes it slightly healthier and I felt the black beans compliment the turkey better than kidney beans. I like to pour it over brown rice that I cook in the Instant Pot earlier or just eat it plain if you don’t have time to make rice. I estimated a 1 cup serving to be approximately 2 WW points.

The recipe is very simple. You start by browning the ground turkey. You can do this in the Instant Pot if you want to keep everything to one pot or in a frying pan if you don’t feel like scraping the bottom of the IP before you put everything else in.

If you brown the meat in the Instant Pot. Use the sauté mode. Then, remove the turkey, add the water and scrape the bottom until all the turkey bits have been removed. Add the turkey back in. Add the corn, beans and  the tomato paste. Next, add as much chili seasoning as you would like. I usually add a half a packet but I like my chili  very mild. Make sure your chili seasoning is gluten free (McCormick’s is NOT gluten free but there are others that are). I prefer Simply Organic Mild Chili Seasoning mix. Old El Paso Chili Seasoning mix is also a good choice.

Another tip, if you don’t want the whole house to smell like chili, you can do the quick release of the Instant Pot outside. This works very well for us because my husband doesn’t like chili but I do.
