  1. 1

    Prepare Ingredients and Make Salsa

    Halve and peel onions. Cut halves into 1/4" dice.

    Stem jalapeño, halve, seed, remove ribs, and cut into 1/4" dice. Wash hands and cutting board after working with jalapeño.

    Mince cilantro, leaves and stems.

    Halve limes and juice.

    Drain beans.

    In a mixing bowl, combine 1/3 the onion (reserve remaining for turkey), jalapeño (to taste), cilantro, lime juice, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Set aside, stirring a few times to allow flavors to marry.

  2. 2

    Start the Meal

    In a clean slow cooker, combine 1 1/2 cups water, remaining onion, ground turkey, garlic salt, 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper.

    Turn slow cooker on to high heat. Cover, and cook until turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4 hours.

  3. 3

    Make the Macaroni

    After 31/2 hours, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once water is boiling, add macaroni and cook until al dente, 7-9 minutes.

    Drain macaroni in a colander.

    When 10 minutes are left to cook, stir macaroni, beans, half the cheddar (reserve remaining for garnish), and cream cheese into slow cooker.
