  • Once the Instant Pot has finished cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes. Then, release any remaining pressure by switching the valve to the “venting” position.
  • Stir in the heavy cream and season with salt and pepper to taste.

  • The vegetables should be soft and the turkey browned before adding the rest of the ingredients and cooking at pressure.
  • You can easily add other vegetables to this dish. Just chop and saute them at the same time as the onion and carrot.
  • If making ahead of time, let the chili cool completely before storing.
