Recipe Monday: Slow Cooker Turkey Stuffed Peppers

For me, there is nothing better than an easy, healthy slow cooker meal. And that’s just what these stuffed peppers are. No pre-cooking of meat necessary, which means no extra dirty pots. I usually stick leftover rice from other meals into the freezer for when I want to make these and then I don’t even have to worry about cooking the rice.
