> 2 tbsp olive oil
> 1 (20 oz) pkg ground turkey
> 1 cup diced onions
> 2 medium red bell peppers, seeded and diced
> 1 tbsp finely chopped garlic
> 2 tbsp salt-free chili powder
> 1 tbsp cocoa powder
> 1 cup low-sodium beef or chicken broth
> 1 (15.5 oz) can low-sodium kidney beans, drained and rinsed
> 1 (15.5 oz) can low-sodium pinto beans, drained and rinsed
> 1 (14.5 oz) can no-salt-added fire-roasted diced tomatoes, drained
> Chopped Cilantro and green onions, to garnish (optional)


In an Instant Pot or multi-cooker, heat the oil on the sauté function on high. Add the turkey, stirring to break up the meat. Sauté 5 min., until mostly browned. To pot, add the onions and peppers. Sauté 6 min., until softened, stirring constantly.
To pot, add the garlic, chili powder, cocoa powder, and ½ tsp salt. Cook 1 min., stirring occasionally. Add the broth, scraping up any browned bits with a wooden spoon. Turn off sauté function. Stir in the beans. Pour the tomatoes on top (do not stir).
Seal and set to high pressure. Cook 20 min. Let natural release for 10 min. Garnish with the cilantro and green onions, if desired.
