  • 2 turkey tenderloins , about 1.5 pounds total weight, organic and antibiotic free preferred

For the dry rub:

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 pound washed dried small white beans, sorted and picked through
  • 3 to 4 cups organic chicken or vegetable broth, homemade or store bought
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced
  • 1 cup salsa verde

optional accompaniments: fresh lime slices, fresh chopped cilantro, Spanish rice, salad, and/or


  • Place the turkey tenderloins on a plate and set aside. In a small bowl, make the dry rub by mixing together all the spices & herbs (chili powder through cumin). Rub both tenderloins with the rub and set aside.
  • In a 6 quart Instant Pot, place the washed white beans in the bottom and add chicken or vegetable broth to just cover the beans (about 3 to 4 cups).
  • Place the sliced onion on top of beans and then add the seasoned turkey tenderloins. Pour the salsa verde over the turkey.
  • Cover with the Instant Pot lid; make sure it's locked and steam value is in the closed position. Select manual button, high pressure, for 40 minutes.
  • When finished, wait 10 minutes for Instant Pot to cool down or release pressure manually by taking a hand towel and carefully opening up the steam value on the lid. It is safe to open once all steam has been released.
  • Remove the turkey to a cutting board and cut into 1 inch slices. Place all the beans with the onions on a platter and place the sliced turkey on top. Serve with optional accompaniments, if desired.
