Quick White Bean & Turkey Chili
This White Bean Turkey Chili made in the Instant Pot is easy to make and so delicious!
Everyone is talking about the Instant Pot! It’s a hot item this holiday season. Many of my friends on Facebook posted that they picked one up on Black Friday. I already owned one – I bought it last year. However, I haven’t used it as much as I would have liked. I think it’s because it intimidated me. I mean, this kitchen appliance, can do SO MUCH. It’s a pressure cooker, slow cooker, yogurt maker, rice cooker and more.
Disclosure: Our sponsor Workman Publishing introduced us to an exciting new Instant Pot cookbook. All opinions on this blog are my own.
I recently received a copy of the cookbook, How to Instant Pot by Daniel Shumski. It’s newly released and has been in stores since October 31, 2017. This cookbook was exactly what I needed to give me the confidence to start using my Instant Pot again. Not only does it feature over 100 delicious one-pot recipes, but it also teaches you how to use the Instant Pot. It’s the only Instant Pot cookbook organized by function and also shows you what all those buttons on the Instant Pot do. Once you master the Instant Pot, it will change the way you cook.
About the Cookbook
Master the revolutionary appliance that’s changing the way we cook!
The only Instant Pot cookbook that is organized by function, How to Instant Pot is both a guide to understanding the Instant Pot basics and a foodie’s creative collection of over 100 recipes specially crafted to take advantage of the Instant Pot’s many virtues, from cooking perfect risotto in six minutes, no stirring required, to five kinds of yogurt, to creating one-hour killer chili and soups from scratch, using dried beans.
White Bean Turkey Chili
I loved the wide variety of recipes and I can easily see many becoming family favourites. I selected a Quick Chili recipe to try using the Pressure Cooker function. Quick White Bean and Turkey Chili appealed to me because it had simple ingredients. I also wanted to get more practice using the Pressure Cooker function on the Instant Pot.
Many of the ingredients I had on hand in my pantry already. I only had to pick up the veggies and ground turkey on my trip to the grocery store.
When they say that it’s a one-pot meal, they mean it. Each step of the recipe is done in the Instant Pot including sautéing the veggies and turkey.
I love that feature of the Instant Pot because it means less dishes for me to clean up afterwards. I’m notorious for making a mess in the kitchen when I’m cooking.
I appreciated that the recipe instructions were very detailed so I knew exactly what buttons to press and when during the process. They broke it down step-by-step making the recipe easy to follow.
I also liked that they mentioned the safety instructions like using a wooden spoon to move the pressure-release valve to venting. It’s super HOT!
This chili recipe took about 45 minutes to make from start to finish. It cooked for 20 minutes in the Instant Pot as a pressure cooker.
I couldn’t believe how yummy it tasted! It had the same deep flavour as a pot of chili that had been simmering on the stove all day.
This recipe makes six servings and my family gobbled it up in record time. Even my picky 13-year-old daughter ate her entire bowl. I was shocked!
I’m leaving my Instant Pot on the kitchen counter because I plan to use it several times a week. The How to Instant Pot cookbook will also be close by as I’m going to be trying the other recipes.
