I love making soups in my Instant Pot and this Instant Pot Ground Turkey and Pumpkin Chili is one of my favorites!
The pumpkin is a secret ingredient that no one will even know is in there – it just adds so much creaminess and health benefits to the dish.
We love to serve this with our Easy Homemade Cornbread and a side salad for a delicious dinner.
This is also a dish that I love to make and eat as healthy lunches all week long.
What Instant Pot do I use?
It’s basically 6 appliances in 1 – pressure cooker, rice cooker, saute, steamer, cake maker, and warmer.
Ingredients in Instant Pot Ground Turkey and Pumpkin Chili:
- olive oil
- ground turkey
- red and green bell peppers
- garlic powder
- chili powder
- canned Great Northern beans
- canned diced tomatoes
- canned pumpkin puree (or homemade)
- green chilies
- chicken broth
- salt and pepper
- sour cream, shredded cheese, and green onions for toppings
You could also use ground turkey in our our Instant Pot Ground Beef and Vegetable Stew in place of the ground beef!
How to make Instant Pot Ground Turkey and Pumpkin Chili:
Press SAUTE button on Instant Pot and let it heat up. Add in olive oil.
Add in ground turkey, onions, and bell peppers, cooking and breaking up turkey as it cooks. Cook for about 5 minutes or until turkey is no longer pink and onions and peppers are tender.
Add in garlic powder, chili powder, cumin, oregano, beans, tomatoes, pumpkin, and green chilies. Mix together. Pour chicken broth on top.
Place lid on top of Instant Pot. Move the valve to SEALING (not venting).
Press the MANUAL button and set timer for 15 minutes.
When the timer is done, allow the Instant Pot to do a natural release for at least 10 minutes (you can go longer if desired or let it stay on the “KEEP WARM” setting for hours).
Move the valve to VENTING and release remaining pressure.
Remove the lid, stir the chili, and serve topped with sour cream, shredded cheese, and sliced green onions.
