Instant Pot ground turkey taco chili recipe is one of those great and easy Instant Pot recipes that you will make over and over again.
While this is a ground turkey recipe, which makes this a healthier recipe, you can always change the turkey out for your favorite protein instead. But we love it with the ground turkey!
Since this is a soup recipe in the Instant Pot, you can skip the extra simmering that you would normally have to do to get that wonderful flavor.
Plus our chili recipe is packed with protein to make it a nice hearty family dinner recipe.
Ingredients Needed For Our Instant Pot Ground Turkey Taco Chili Recipe:
- Lean ground turkey
- Diced yellow onion
- Minced garlic
- Taco seasoning
- Ranch dressing mix
- Chicken broth
- Diced tomatoes
- Diced green chilies
- Black beans
- Refried beans
- Shredded Mexican cheese
How To Make Our Instant Pot Ground Turkey Taco Chili Recipe:
Turn the Instant Pot onto SAUTE.
Once the pan reads HOT add in the ground turkey and diced onion.
Let that cook for about 5 minutes or until the turkey is no longer pink. Then add in the minced garlic, ranch seasoning packet, chicken broth, tomatoes, green chilies, drained and rinsed black beans, and drained corn.
Once all of that is in there, mix it all up together well.
Then, spoon in the can of refried beans on top of everything.
After everything is in there, place the lid on the Instant Pot, turning the knob to the SEALING position, then press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK button and set the timer for 5 minutes.
When the timer has run out, let the Instant Pot do a natural release for 5 minutes, then turn the knob to the VENTING position to allow the rest of the pressure to escape.
Once all the pressure is gone, remove the lid and stir in the refried beans until everything is creamy, smooth, and well combined.
Now just dish it out into soup bowls and top it off with the Mexican cheese and enjoy!
