  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 red onion diced
  • 2 carrots diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 8 oz mushrooms diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb extra lean ground turkey
  • 6-9 tbsp homemade taco seasoning* or 2 - 3 (1.25 oz) packets
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes undrained
  • 1 red bell pepper diced
  • 1/2 cup water
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • garnish with lime juice, sour cream, cheese, tortillas, etc.


  • Press the sauté button on your instant pot.
  • Once it reads "HOT", add in oil, red onion, carrots, celery, mushrooms, garlic, and ground turkey.
  • Cook for about 10 minutes or until the veggies start to get tender and the turkey is cooked. Break up the turkey as you go, but don't break it up too much or you'll lose texture.
  • Drain the liquid.
  • Add in taco seasoning, tomatoes, bell pepper, and water.
  • Seal the lid (making sure the valve is pointed to sealing) and cook under high pressure for 15 minutes.**
  • Turn the knob to quick release.
  • Serve with a slotted spoon (there WILL be a lot of liquid, but it keeps the turkey moist.)
  • Serve with all your favorite taco fixings!
  • Take 5 seconds to rate this recipe below. We greatly appreciate it!



*Ensure taco seasoning is certified gluten-free if necessary.
**It takes time for the instant pot to come to pressure. Once it comes to pressure, THEN it will start to count down from 15.
