  • 1 large bell pepper, diced
  • 2 stalks of celery, diced

Method

In a large non-stick sauté pan, cook the 1 small diced onion and 1.25 lbs. ground turkey meat over medium high heat until the meat is just browned, breaking it up as it cooks.

Pour the meat and onion into the Crockpot and add the rest of the ingredients. Cook on high heat for 4 hours, or on low heat for 8 hours.

Enjoy with toppings of choice if desired (orgnaic shredded cheese, Greek yogurt, chopped green onions, etc.).
