  • 1 lb dark ground turkey
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • l large garlic clove minced
  • 1/2 in onion chopped ( I have used either yellow or red onion this recipe)
  • 2 cups chopped diced peppers (about 1/2 of a red and 1/2 of a green) pepper (could use yellow also). Shortcut: use frozen sliced peppers and chop them.
  • 1 cup celery, chopped and diced (about 5 large stalks)
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped and diced (about 5 large carrots) Shortcut: use frozen sliced carrots.
  • 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 28 ounce can fire roasted petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 tablespoon oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. In a skillet, saute onion and garlic until translucent in 1 tablespoon olive oil, about 5 minutes. Keep a close watch to make sure onion and garlic don't burn.

  2. Add ground turkey to skillet and brown and cook turkey until no longer pink.

  3. Add turkey mixture and all other ingredients into your slow cooker. Stir the ingredients to combine. Then put on the lid and set the temperature.

  4. I cook this two ways - on high for 3 hours if I want/need it sooner or 6-8 hours on low if I have the time to wait. Both ways are great.
