This healthy, easy pressure cooker turkey lentil chili is the perfect meal for any night of the week.  It fills you up without filling you out while still having tons of flavor.


Ingredients

1 lb ground turkey
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 minced garlic cloves
2 Tbsp tomato paste
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 cup dry green lentils
2 cups water
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
1 (4 oz) can diced green chiles
2 tsp chili powder
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp pepper


Instructions

  1. Turn your Instant Pot onto “saute.” Brown the ground turkey. Add in the diced onions, garlic, tomato paste and salt and cook until meat is browned and onions are soft and translucent.
  2. Add in the lentils, water, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, green chiles, chili powder, cumin and pepper.
  3. Cover the Instant Pot and turn it to “manual,” set the timer to 13 minutes. Make sure the valve is set to “sealing.”
  4. When the timer beeps let it sit for 10 minutes and then slowly release the pressure by moving the valve to “venting.”
  5. Remove the lid and ladle the chili into bowls. We topped ours with a dollop of sour cream and some diced green onions.
