  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 cup corn (optional, as corn isn't typically keto-friendly but can be used in moderation)
  • 1 cup beans (optional, as beans aren't typically keto-friendly but can be used in moderation or substituted with a lower-carb option)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Fresh cilantro for garnish (optional)
  • Avocado slices for garnish (optional)


  1. Prepare the Instant Pot: Set your Instant Pot to the 'Sauté' function and add the olive oil.
  2. Cook the Turkey: Add the ground turkey to the pot. Break it up with a wooden spoon and cook until browned, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Add Aromatics: Add the diced onion, minced garlic, and diced bell pepper. Sauté for another 3-4 minutes until the vegetables are softened.
  4. Add Seasonings: Stir in the chili powder, cumin, and paprika. Cook for another minute to let the spices bloom.
  5. Add Remaining Ingredients: Pour in the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, corn, and beans. Stir well to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Cook Under Pressure: Secure the lid on the Instant Pot and set it to 'Manual' or 'Pressure Cook' on high for 10 minutes. Make sure the valve is set to 'Sealing.'
  7. Release Pressure: Once the cooking time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then carefully switch the valve to 'Venting' to release any remaining pressure.
  8. Serve: Open the lid and give the chili a good stir. Adjust seasoning if necessary. Serve hot, garnished with fresh cilantro and avocado slices if desired.

There you have it—a satisfying, keto-friendly Ground Turkey Chili that's ready in a flash! Perfect for those busy weeknights when you need something quick but delicious. Enjoy!
