  • 1 can crush fire-roasted tomatoes
  • 1 cup sweet potato purée pumpkin purée also works!

  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1-2 bell peppers diced can be any color – I like using one green and one red/yellow
  • 1 sweet potato peeled and chopped into cubes
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp chili seasoning powder I use 365 brand
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp red chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • Cilantro scallions or red onions, chopped avocado, Greek yogurt or sour cream, and/or shredded cheese to garnish (optional)


  • Set Instant Pot to sauté mode. Add in oil, onions, garlic, seasonings, salt, and pepper. Saute for a few minutes until onions are cooked down.
  • Add in ground turkey and sauté until browned for about 5 minutes.
  • Add peppers, sweet potatoes, crushed tomatoes, and sweet potato purée and continue to sauté for a few more minutes until everything is well combined and cooked down.
  • Press cancel on your instant pot. Set to pressure cook on high for 10 minutes. Close the lid, and turn the pressure valve on the lid to sealing.
  • Once finished, quick-release pressure by turning the pressure valve to Venting. Once all steam is released, open Instant Pot.
  • Add in lemon juice. Turn back to sauté mode and let the chili thicken a bit on heat while stirring intermittently. Turn off after a few minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  • Ladle into bowls and garnish with freshly chopped cilantro, red onions, avocado, cheese, or anything else you like on chili! Serve hot and enjoy!
