Ground Turkey Series (Part 4): Heirloom 3 Bean and Ground Turkey Chili

If you don’t think your family would go for turkey chili, give it a try anyway. I did not tell hubby that I used ground turkey. At the end of our meal, he asked about it and commented that he liked it. When eating leftovers, he said, ” I like the turkey chili better than beef chili. It did not give me heartburn, plus I am sure that it is better for us!”

Heirloom 3 Bean and Ground Turkey Chili

Note: I used precooked ground turkey but this recipe has directions for cooking raw meat. If you are using precooked (thawed) meat, add it last, after pressure has gone down and when you are adding spice packet, tomato based canned items, and other ingredients at end of recipe.
