Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat, and add the turkey, chili powder, ground cumin, and garlic powder.

Cook and stir, breaking up the meat as you stir until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Season with sea salt and pepper, then transfer the meat to a large slow cooker.

Add in the dry quinoa, beans, corn, chopped bell pepper, chopped celery, chopped onion, and tomatoes, pour in the chicken broth, and stir to combine.

Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or on 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 shredded cheese, then sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top. Cover and cook on high until the cheese melt, about 10-15 minutes.

Serve and enjoy while hot with any desired toppings.
