I love coming home after a long day to find a warm delicious meal waiting! Hint: keep bags of precooked turkey in the freezer for speedy assembly on busy mornings.
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil or ghee
1 lb lean grass fed ground or chopped turkey
1 onion, peeled and chopped
1 bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced (optional)
large can or jar diced tomatoes (I like Jovial in glass jar)
15 ounce can kidney beans (I like Eden organic)
15 ounce can pumpkin puree (I like Farmers Market organic)
12 ounce frozen organic corn kernels
3 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon cumin
sea salt & pepper to taste
toppings of avocado, shredded cheese, plain yogurt, lime wedges (optional)
Over medium high heat cook turkey in oil or ghee, breaking up ground turkey into chunks (skip this step if using precooked turkey). Add turkey to the slow cooker with all ingredients except salt & pepper and optional toppings. Cook on low for 8 to 10 hours or high for 6 to 8 hours. Season with salt & pepper. Top with with avocado, cheese, yogurt, and lime if desired. Enjoy!
