  • Add diced onion to a large skillet with a swirl of olive oil. Cook until softened, about five minutes. Remove to a plate.
  • Next, add ground turkey to the skillet over medium heat. Cook until browned. Drain.
  • Add turkey and onion to your Crock-Pot.
  • Pour in all canned veggies and beans {or your can use frozen or fresh too}.
  • I used fresh chopped carrots and canned roasted green chilies too.
  • Finally, add your seasonings. If you like heat add in chipotle or cayenne seasoning.
  • Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours.
  • Scoop into bowls and serve warm with sour cream and cheese on top.
