Slow Cooker White Turkey Chili

Slow cookers are a busy person's best friend and chili in the slow cooker is a favorite. This is especially great during the summer because slow cookers emit very little heat, unlike the stove top or oven. This white ground turkey version is full of flavor and gets a little extra kick topped with fried green onions.
