An Excellent Turkey Quinoa Chili Recipe Made in the Instant Pot

I made this recipe today and it was delicious.  I love quinoa because it is so light and takes on the flavor of the spices. I would highly recommend this recipe. I’ve eaten three bowls of chili today and am looking forward to leftovers tomorrow.  Let me know if you try it!

Instant Pot Turkey Quinoa Chili

Instant Pot Turkey Quinoa Chili


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 whole onion, diced
  • 3 whole carrots, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 14 oz cans beans, I used pintos and black beans
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 14 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  1. Set Instant Pot to saute and add 1 tbsp olive oil.  Brown turkey until cooked.  Remove from pot.

  2. Add 1 more tbsp of olive oil and add onions, carrots, and garlic.  Saute for about 6-8 minutes.

  3. Add turkey back to pot along with all other ingredients.  Stir.  Set Instant Pot for 20 minutes on high pressure.

  4. When the timer goes off, use a dishtowel to release pressure valve.  After heat has released remove lid and taste.  Add more salt and pepper to taste.

  5. Serve with shredded cheese and avocado.  If you like your chili thinner you can add more broth or less broth to taste.
