  • Pressure Cooker


  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp cocoa unsweetened
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tsp minced canned chipotle sauce
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 C chicken broth
  • 14.5 oz diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 C peanut butter smooth and creamy
  • 1 C raisins
  • 1 tsp salt or more to taste
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2-3 C turkey
  • 1 onion sliced thin


  • Add the vegetable oil to the instant pot and push saute.
  • Add the onions and saute until soft, 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove the onions with a slotted spoon and set aside in a separate dish.
  • Add 2 more Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil to the Instant Pot and push the saute feature a second time.
  • Add the chili powder, cocoa, garlic, chipotle, and cinnamon and cook for 30 seconds - it is going to smell very fragrant.
  • Stir in the broth, tomatoes, raisins and peanut butter and scrape down the sides and on the bottom of the pot to ensure you incorporate all the ingredients.
  • Continue with the saute function and allow the ingredients to simmer in the instant pot for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Remove the sauce and pour it into your blender (or, use your immersion blender) and puree it until smooth.
  • Pour the sauce back in your Instant Pot and add in the turkey. Then, grab the onions you set aside and dump those in, too.
  • Mix well, then place the lid on the Instant Pot and close the valve (seal).
  • On the Instant Pot, push manual (high) then set the timer for 15 minutes.
  • When the timer beeps, allow the pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, then do a quick release on remaining pressure.
  • Season with salt & pepper, and serve as is with tortillas or with rice.
