Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend and I bet there are many, many pounds of turkey leftovers in refrigerators across the country. Don’t feel left out, Americans, your time is coming next month! Instead of ignoring the leftovers until you throw them away, make them into this delicious White Turkey Chili in your Instant Pot. Warm, delicious and EASY. Perfect for after the busy holiday weekend (or any time).
So why is this called WHITE chili? Well, it is made with turkey, cannellini beans and green chilis. No tomatoes, red kidney beans or chili powder in site. So you still get the spice and general composition of chili (think meat and beans) but without the red. Regardless of the color, chili is one of my favourite fall and winter recipes because it is so delicious. I especially love making it and serving it with my skillet cornbread. Yum!
Also, you can easily make this in your slow cooker as well but I love the quickness of the Instant Pot. Read my comparison of the Instant Pot vs the Slow Cooker to see if you might want to make the switch!
