Slow Cooker Turkey Verde Chili

It's been a moment or two since I've posted a recipe.  My work and family have been taking precedence over blogging, however I still continue to create recipes and cook dinner nearly every night! My hubby and friends have requested that I make this chili time and time again, so I figured it was time for a share!

1 yellow onion, chopped

1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and chopped

10 medium tomatillos, chopped

3 celery stalks, chopped

1 pasilla or poblano pepper, seeded and chopped

1.5 lb lean ground turkey, browned in a nonstick skillet

1 can white chili beans
