Course Main Course


  • 1 pound ground turkey beef or Italian sausage can be substituted
  • 1/2 cup yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 green or red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 pound baby petite red potatoes, unpeeled, sliced thin
  • 1 15oz can fire-roasted corn, drained
  • 1 14.5oz can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14.5oz can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, not drained
  • 1/2 cup low sodium beef broth chicken broth can be substituted
  • 3/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder or smoked paprika
  • 1 cup reduced fat, Colby-Jack shredded cheese I use the Sargento brand


  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Avocado
  • Sour cream
  • Hot sauce


  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the ground turkey, onion and bell pepper. Season with a 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp of pepper. Cook until meat is no longer pink. Add chili powder, chipotle powder, and minced garlic. Cook just until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add meat mixture to a 6 quart crockpot and top with the thinly sliced potatoes. I added another 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper over potatoes.
  • Add the corn, beans, tomatoes, and broth. Stir everything together.
  • Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 5-7. NOTE: You want your potatoes to hold together and not be mushy so don't overcook.
  • Serve up and top with cheese and your favorite extras!
