Ingredients

Instructions

Crockpot Instructions:

  • Chop vegetables.
  • Heat olive oil in a pan on the stove. Add in the onion, garlic and carrots. Sauté for 2-5 minutes or until slightly translucent. (This step is optional, but recommended!)
  • Stir all of the remaining ingredients EXCEPT corn together in the crockpot until thoroughly mixed.
  • Cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours. Five minutes before serving, add in frozen corn and stir until warmed. Serve over rice or cauliflower rice.

Instant Pot Instructions

  • *Warning* The instant pot Is very finicky. We do not recommend making this chili in it unless you must as it may give you a burn notice. This chili tastes much better and is easier to make in your crockpot or on the stove. Note: You will need 1 cup of water in addition to the ingredients listed above to make this in the instant pot.
  • Chop vegetables.
  • Set the Instant Pot to sauté mode for 5 minutes. Heat olive oil. Add in the onion, garlic and carrots. Sauté for 2-5 minutes or until slightly translucent.
  • Important: Make sure to scrape off any pieces of food on the bottom of the Instant Pot or you will get a burn notice during cooking.
  • Add peppers, cooked turkey, crushed tomatoes, spices, beans and 1 cup of water to the pot. Do not add corn. Stir together.
  • Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook for 6 minutes on high pressure. Make sure the pressure release is set to sealing (on older models). When finished cooking, allow pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
  • When ready to serve, add in frozen corn and stir until warmed. Serve over rice or cauliflower rice.

Stovetop Instructions:

  • Chop vegetables.
  • In a large pot on the stove, heat olive oil. Add in the onion, garlic and carrots. Sauté for 2-5 minutes or until slightly translucent.
  • Add peppers, cooked turkey, crushed tomatoes, spices and beans. Do not add corn. Stir together.
  • Bring chili to a low boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and cook over medium heat for 1-2 hours on low-medium heat, stirring every 20 minutes.
  • Five minutes before serving, add in frozen corn and stir until warmed. Serve over rice or cauliflower rice.
