I see that you commented that you do not need to brown the beef prior to putting it in the crockpot. Does the same apply if you use ground turkey?

Hi Tena, yes the same applies. You can brown it if you want to. The meat will be bigger chunks if you do. If you put it in without browning, the meat is tinier chunks and the flavor is the same either way.
