21 Day Fix chili recipes are a great way to meal prep. You can make 21 Day Fix chili with no beans, in the Instant Pot, with the Crockpot, and more. The possibilities for these chili recipes are endless. There are even some vegetarian chili recipes included.
Can I convert stovetop chili recipes to the Instant Pot or Crockpot?
I love making 21 Day Fix Chili recipes in the Instant Pot and the Crockpot. Sometimes that low, slow, heat is perfect for making chili and other times we need to get something on the table in a hurry.
Luckily I’ve worked up a set of quick and easy tips for converting recipes to both the Instant Pot and the Crockpot. You can take your usual favorites and have them cooking in the IP or the slow cooker in no time.
Will my chili still taste good if I cook it in the Instant Pot?
When I need to kick things into high gear I use the Instant Pot. I can brown the meat, saute the veggies, and cook everything to tasty perfection in half the time or less! I think chili recipes hold up really well in the Instant Pot and I don’t notice that there’s flavor or depth missing from my chili recipes made in the Instant Pot.
Slow cooking chili has long been the tried and true standard but a pressure cooker speeds up the process without sacrificing the slow cooking results!
If you aren’t a fan of the Instant Pot that’s okay. If you’ve never taken the leap to get on board the Instant Pot bandwagon there’s still time! Programmable pressure cookers can do everything from dessert to mac and cheese…and they can do it FAST.
Can I use turkey in my 21 Day Fix chili recipes?
Using turkey meat in your chili recipes is a great idea. The awesome thing about chili is that it’s so adaptable and forgiving in terms of flavors and texture. Chicken, beef, and turkey are all but interchangeable when it comes to making a delicious chili recipe.
On the 21 Day Fix lean ground turkey, chicken, or ground beef would all be acceptable and since all three options are going to go into the same container you wouldn’t have to make alterations in terms of how you count these types of changes.

How to thicken chili in the Crockpot:
If you are wondering how to thicken chili in the Crockpot I have a little hack for you…Use 1 to 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and whisk it into a cup full of the hot chili liquid. Mix until there are no more lumps and then add it slowly back into your chili. This can help your recipes thicken up a bit faster if the are too thin for your liking.
The best way to thicken chili in the Crockpot is to give it plenty of time on a low heat to cook. The beans will naturally help the chili thicken if given enough time to simmer!
