  • 1 1/4 lb lean ground turkey
  • seasoning salt
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 2 red bell pepper, diced
  • 23 garlic cloves, minced
  • 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 28 ounce can diced tomatoes

  1. Season your ground turkey lightly with seasoning salt. In a pan, brown the turkey over medium heat, crumbling up as you stir. Add to the bottom of your slow cooker.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, and season with salt and pepper. Stir well. Cook 8 hours on low.
  3. Serve with desired toppings, and cornbread muffins. Enjoy!


*If dairy free, substitute vegan cheese and yogurt, like those made with nut or soy milks.
