  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat and add turkey, onion, salt, pepper and garlic. Cook for 5-7 saves minutes, or until the turkey is cooked through and onions start to become translucent.
  2. Add chili powder, ancho chili powder, cumin and nutmeg. Cook for 30s or until fragrant. Line the bottom of your crock pot with the turkey and onion mixture.
  3. Add sweet potatoes, quinoa, fire roasted tomatoes, black beans and chicken broth.
