crockpot turkey chili

I've been refining this for a while now to make it easier and easier, and I think I've finally gotten there... loosely based on this recipe.

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey or chicken sausage, or a blend of the two
  • green/red/yellow bell peppers, finely chopped
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes, undrained, plus a chopped fresh tomato or two if you have some to use up
  • some beans, equaling about two cans -- black, kidney, white, pinto, whatever
  •  2 c reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • a bag of frozen corn
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder and/or a couple adobo chiles with some sauce
  • pepper, cumin, garlic powder
In a large nonstick skillet, cook the turkey, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add all spices.

Transfer to a 4-qt. slow cooker. Stir in everything else.

Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until heated through.

Serve with sour cream, cheese, cilantro, etc.
