Instant Pot Ground Turkey and Pumpkin Chili Recipe

I love making soups in my Instant Pot and this Instant Pot Ground Turkey and Pumpkin Chili is one of my favorites!

The pumpkin is a secret ingredient that no one will even know is in there – it just adds so much creaminess and health benefits to the dish.

We love to serve this with our Easy Homemade Cornbread and a side salad for a delicious dinner.

This is also a dish that I love to make and eat as healthy lunches all week long.

What Instant Pot do I use?

I have the Instant Pot LUX 6 Quart 6-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker.

It’s basically 6 appliances in 1 – pressure cooker, rice cooker, saute, steamer, cake maker, and warmer.
