Southwestern Turkey Joes
adapted from Weight Watchers

1 pound ground turkey
1 green bell pepper, chopped
2 tablespoons dehydrated chopped onions
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 can corn, rinsed and drained
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 bag hamburger buns

Spray the inside of your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.  Add all ingredients to the corn to the slow cooker.  Stir until combined and the turkey is loosened.  Set the cooker to low for 4-5 hours, stirring occasionally to loosen the turkey.  Add the corn and beans and cook until heated through, roughly 10 minutes.  Serve with your favorite hamburger bun.
