Instant Pot White Turkey Chili

A few months ago, OK its been a while since Thanksgiving, so more like 5 months ago, I bought a whole turkey. Good quality turkey and its been taking up space in my freezer ever since. I decided to pull it out to roast for the weekend. It was wonderful! Juicy, moist and tasty! THEN we had turkey leftovers ALL week long! One of the things I wanted to make was a white chili. I remember the days of white chicken chili with beans and tons of cheese and I was craving something along those lines.

Enter in a more healthified version. Paleo, whole 30 and darn right TASTY! This is easy and the perfect combination of sweet and spicy all in one chili. Roast yourself up a turkey and enjoy this chili!

Recipe Notes

*If you can't find a white sweet potato, a common orange one will be fine, just cut into 1" inch chunks since they're a bit softer, however white lends a better flavor to this chili. **Coconut cream is the solid part in a can of refrigerated coconut milk. You can buy full fat coconut milk and use only the thick part, or purchase a can of coconut cream only.
