  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • salt and pepper
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder

  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • Optional toppings: grated cheese, sliced green onions, tortilla chips, avocado, Greek yogurt or sour cream

  • To the meat in the slow cooker, add the spices, bell peppers, chickpeas, and diced tomatoes; stir. Then stir in the chicken broth.
