  • 6-quart Instant Pot


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion diced
  • 2 large carrots peeled and sliced or diced
  • 2 medium garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound 99% fat free ground turkey
  • 1 cup fat-free chicken broth
  • 2 14.5-ounce cans diced tomatoes
  • 2 15-ounce cans great northern beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning


  • Heat the Instant Pot to the SAUTE function. Add the olive oil, onion, and carrot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are soft (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the garlic and ground turkey and cook, stirring occasionally, until the turkey has browned (5 minutes).
  • Add the chicken broth or stock and scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Important before the pressure cooking cycle to avoid a burn warning.
  • Add the diced tomatoes, great northern beans, chili powder, cumin, paprika, and Italian seasoning. Stir to combine.
  • Seal the lid and set the pressure release valve to the “sealing” position. Select Manual - High Pressure for 8 minutes.
  • When the cooking cycle is completed allow a NATURAL RELEASE for 5 minutes followed by a MANUAL RELEASE to release any remaining pressure.
  • Season salt and black pepper to taste.
  • Enjoy warm, topped with your favorite garnishes. Store any leftover chili in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.


Topping ideas:
  • thinly slice jalapeno peppers
  • fat reduced sour cream or non fat plain Greek yogurt (we love Chobani brand)
  • sliced green onions
  • shredded cheddar cheese (regular or fat-reduced)
  • crushed tortilla chips (if you are a WW member their Sea Salt Tortilla Chips are perfect for this and low points)
  • torn fresh cilantro leaves
  • lime wedges for a squeeze of lime juice
How to Store
Allow the white chili to cool and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop in a saucepan.
How to Freeze
This healthy white bean turkey chili freezes great too. Allow to cool. Place in an airtight freezer-safe container leaving ¾ inch space on top for expansion. Freeze for 4-6 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before reheating.
