mexican stuffed peppers

i LOVE stuffed peppers. like, seriously - they're one of my favorite dishes. 
i also love mexican. 
combine, the two? yes, please!
i could spend hours browsing through pinterest for the perfect mexican stuffed peppers, but decided i would just 'wing it' and make my own!
and of course, everything is better when you can just throw it in the crock pot all day!
and when you only need a few, staple ingredients.
all four of these can always be found in my pantry!
omg, drool.
ladies & gents:
the perfect mexican stuffed pepper.
[that's actually kinda healthy!]

4-5 peppers
1lb ground turkey
1 can black beans - rinsed/drained
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can corn - rinsed/drained
1 can tomato sauce
1 small onion - diced
handful of cheese

hollow the peppers out and place them in the crock pot!
mix up the ground turkey [yes, raw], beans, tomatoes & corn.
fill up the peppers!
pour the tomato sauce all around [you could really get by with only using half of the sauce]
cook: low 8hrs
          high 4hrs
top them bad boys with a handful of cheese right at the end
and ENJOY!
