Ninja Foodi/InstantPot/Pressure Cooker Instructions

  • Please read the notes below to see if you should cook the ground turkey first.
  • Add all of the ingredients to the pot. Put on the lid, seal and cook on high pressure for 25 minutes. Let it manually release (takes roughly 25 minutes). Serve with optional avocado, greek yogurt, or cheddar cheese.

Stove Top Instructions

  • Heat a medium stockpot over medium-high heat. Add turkey, celery, green pepper, and onion together. Sautee until turkey is cooked.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (excluding the toppings), bring to a boil then turn the heat down, cover and let simmer for a minimum of 35-40 minutes. You may have to add another cup or two of chicken broth.
  • Serve with optional avocado, greek yogurt, or cheddar cheese.


In a hurry?
You can totally throw together the raw ground turkey in with everything and let it cook but, if you have a few extra minutes, I recommend at least cooking it first on the saute mode.
