Slow Cooker Sloppy Joes


Guest blogger Jessica (Denver, CO) from Beauty Marks again. This one was too easy for words and, most importantly, was a HUGE crowd-pleaser. You can spice it up with chili powder or jalapeños if you’d like, but I kept it mild for the timid in my house.

1 lb (or 17.6 oz. if you’re buying Jennie-O) ground turkey

1 medium onion, diced

½ red pepper, diced
