Step 1

In large skillet over medium heat, add oil, diced onion and garlic stirring frequently for 2 minutes. Add ground turkey and brown slightly, stirring to crumble, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer to slow cooker and add bell peppers, beans, tomato paste, canned tomatoes, butternut squash, spices, stock and juice of lime. Stir until well combined, lock lid and cook on low for 3-4 hours until squash is tender.

Step 2

Set pressure cooker (Instant Pot) to “sauté” mode. Add oil, onion, garlic and ground turkey to pot. I like to sprinkle on a little bit of extra cumin and chili powder here while the meat is browning. Crumble with large wooden spoon until browned. Add bell peppers, beans, tomato paste, spices, 1 cup stock*, lime (leave out butternut squash right now). Stir ingredients in pot until well combined, then add butternut squash on top and do not stir. Close lid, make sure valve stem is set to sealed. Set pot to “manual” mode on “high pressure” for 15 minutes. Quick release the pressure (cover stem with towel); remove lid and stir butternut squash into the chili.

Step 3

Place large pot or dutch oven on stove over medium heat. Once pot is warm add oil, diced onion and minced garlic, stirring frequently until fragrant. Add ground turkey breaking up with wooden spoon and brown for about 5 minutes. Add in spices, tomato paste, bell peppers, butternut squash and cook down for about 5 minutes. Add beans, stock and juice of 1 lime and stir until combined. Bring pot to simmer and cook uncovered for about 30-40 minutes or until squash is tender. Serve warm in bowls using your favorite toppings.
