1  red bell pepper, chopped
1  green bell pepper, chopped

2 tbsp chili powder (or more if you choose, depending on your chili powder’s specific flavor)
1/2  teaspoon  salt
Toppings: shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese blend, finely chopped red onion

Cook first 3 ingredients in a large skillet over medium-high heat, stirring until turkey crumbles and is no longer pink; drain. Spoon mixture into a 5 1/2-qt. slow cooker; stir in corn and next 7 ingredients until well blended.

This looks delicious.
Anybody use fresh corn instead of frozen? How did it come out? Any extra cooking time needed?

Frozen corn totally works! You could either thaw it prior to cooking, or you could just toss it in a skillet before you dive in.
