The Best Instant Pot Turkey Chili

Chili is on repeat at our house pretty much every weekend throughout winter!

There’s something about it that’s just so comforting and cozy. I love making a huge pot on Sunday, then I can reheat it throughout the week. Last year I invested in stainless steel thermos food containers for the whole family. They’re perfect to fill with chili for school/work lunches or when we’re on the go.

I’ve made so many different chili recipes over the years that it finally became a joke in our family. I never made the same recipe twice…always trying to settle on THE BEST combination of ingredients was tough!

This year I finally got it right & I’m ready to share!
