Recipe: Gluten Free Crock Pot Chili Mac

I have a few meals that are in my monthly rotation and each time I make them, I wing it. 
There is no recipe to this, I just added what I had. 
Of course I'll write out a recipe for you of what I did this time, as it was one on the best chili's I've made to date (says my hubby). 

-1 pound ground chicken
-1 pound grass fed beef
-2 cans black beans, drained (you can also buy dry beans and soak them over night)
-2 can diced tomatoes (you can also use fresh tomatoes)
-1/2 green pepper
-1/2 red pepper
-1/2 yellow onion
-3 tablespoons chili powder
-3 tablespoons turmeric 
-2 tablespoons cumin
-1 cup gluten free noodles
-shredded cheese (optional)
-sour cream (optional)

-Turn your crock pot to low and add both pounds of frozen meat (you can use thawed meat, just lower cook time)
-Open all cans,  drain the beans, and add to crock pot
-Dice peppers and onions and add to crock pot
-Add all seasoning to top and put lid on

-After a few hours I used the tool below to chop up the meat (you can get one on Pampered Chef).
-Let cook for 7-9 hours. Turn to high if you want to speed up the cook time.
-After fully cooked, add 1 cup gluten free noodles of choice (can be rice or corn flour noodles) and let cook for 30 more minutes.
