Instructions
Slow- cooker option
  1.  In a non-stick pan, heat the oil. Add onion and saute for about 5-8 minutes until soft. Add the garlic and stir. Add the ground turkey and brown the turkey. For this dish, I used a 6-quart slow cooker. Add the diced tomatoes UNDRAINED, the peppers, and ground turkey. Set on high for 3 and 1/2 hours to 4 hours (watch carefully as all slow cookers cook differently - yours may be quicker or slower. Mine took exactly 3 hours and 30 minutes). 

    Add the cheese and increase any spices to reach desired taste preference. Heat corn tortilla in a pan until toasted and warm.

    If desired, serve with sour cream, guacamole, fresh cilantro, and/or a squeeze of lime.
