• Add the diced tomatoes, tomato sauce, garbanzo beans, 12 chopped red bell peppers, chopped sweet potatoes, vegetable stock, cumin, paprika, and chill powder after the turkey has browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and fully combine all ingredients.

• Close the vent. Set the timer for 9 mins on high pressure. When the 9 minutes are over, press the Quick Release button and release the lid. Stir in the remaining red bell pepper until everything is well combined.

• For a low-carb option, serve over cooked brown rice or riced cauliflower. To serve, top with a dollop of sour cream, cubed avocado, grated cheese, chopped cilantro, and additional chili flakes.
