Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium high.

Add the turkey, chili powder, ground cumin seed and garlic powder.

Cook and stir, breaking up the meat as you go, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes.

Season with sea salt and pepper, then transfer the meat to the bottom of a large slow cooker

Add in the dry quinoa, beans, corn, bell pepper, celery, onion, and tomatoes.

Pour in the chicken broth, then stir to combine.

Cover and cook on HIGH for 2-3 hours or LOW for 5-6 hours, until the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa is tender.

Remove the lid and stir in 1/2 cup of the shredded cheese, then sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.

Cover and cook on HIGH until the cheese melts, about 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve hot with any desired toppings.
