Chipotle Turkey Master Mix

Tonia Bloom
A bone-in turkey breast with chipotle chilies makes a delicious meat that works well in tacos, quesadillas, or burritos. The Instant Pot or any pressure cooker speeds up the cooking process and keeps the meat extra moist. Package and freeze for quick meals.
Most grocery stores only carry frozen turkey breasts. The amount of sodium varies depending on the brand. Look for less than 400 milligrams sodium per 4-ounce serving; or the lowest you can find.
