Turkey Chile Verde (Instant Pot) is my recipe of the day for a blogger chili cook-off.

I  love this recipe since it cooks  easily in  the instant  pot. And this uses Hatch chilies which I had tucked in the freezer, but you can use any mild  canned  green  chile if  you like.

White  chili is generally any  kind  of chili made with poultry and  no tomato. The  tomatillo  double  in  the place of that to  build the  flavor. Just peel off  the husks on  those,  rinse and chop.

Finally,   this  uses  cannellini beans  but  you can  use any type of white bean  you  have on hand.

  1. This sounds wonderful I don’t have any tomatillos right now but I do have a counter full of green tomatoes that I may use to make this wonderful chili.
