Turkey Taco Stew In A Crockpot Recipe

Crock pot Turkey Taco Pie
One of the things I enjoy about cooking is mixing favorites dishes to come up with something different. I can't say that I invented tacos or turkey.  And yes, I know that I wasn't the first person to cook Turkey Taco Stew.  But I can say that I haven't seen a recipe that explains how lazy you can be and still come out with a really great dish. What I mean by that is...all you do is throw this stuff in a crock pot and let it cook for about 5 or 6 hours.  The hardest part of the recipe is not breaking it open and eating it in about 3 hours. It will still be OK, but if you let it cook long enough it will be fantastic. The turkey just shreds apart. Trust me, you'll want to cook it again.

Just Put This Stuff In A Crockpot

These are the ingredients, and in the amounts that I prefer.  But if you don't have one of the ingredients don't
let it stop you from cooking something that you'll really like. Or you could just put what you have in the pot, and pick the other stuff up if you get a chance.  


  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 15 oz can black beans
  • 1 15 oz can kidney beans
  • 1 15 oz can corn
  • 1 8 oz can tomato sauce
  • 29 oz diced tomatoes w/chilis
  • 1 1.25 oz packet low sodium taco seasoning
  • 1.07 lb turkey breast cutlets (4) 


  1. Mix everything together in a slow cooker except turkey.
  2. Lay turkey on top and cover.
  3. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
  4. 30 minutes before serving, remove turkey and shred.
  5. Return turkey to slow cooker and stir in.
This is good eaten with cheese, sour cream, or tortilla chips.note: this is an adaptation of GINGERFISH's "Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Stew" recipe.

About Potato Chip Sandwich

According to some people, men can't tell time, can't follow directions and can't cook. That's simply not true. The owner and author of the site, me..  can cook. This site is simply a way for me to keep up with my recipes without putting it into my other 10 or so blogs. Everything is Google-ized, so it's connected to all my other stuff. I suggests you try the BBQ. This site gets it's name from road trips when I was in my 20's. By the time we would head home...all we could afford was a loaf of bread and some potato chips.
