Crockpot Spicy Beans with Turkey Sausage

I got this recipe out of Reader's Digest and it is really yummy! It's also cheap, super easy, and low in fat. Reader's Digest says it's $1.69 per serving (6 servings total), but I think depending on where you shop, it might be cheaper! It really wasn't "spicy" but it was very flavorful. I did leave out the green pepper.

1 lb smoked turkey sausage, halved lengthwise and cut into 1/2" slices
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can great northern beans,
rinsed and drained
1 can black beans,
rinsed and drained
1 1/2 cups frozen corn (you could probably use 1 can instead if you like)
1 1/2 cups salsa
1 large green pepper, chopped (optional)
1 large onion, chopped (or I used 1 Tbsp dried minced onion instead)
1/2 to 1 cup water (I used a full cup)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ground cumin
Combine all ingredients in slow cooker, stir, and cook on low 4 to 6 hours.

WW Points: 3 points per cup (or if you didn't add the fresh onion and bell pepper like I didn't, it's 4 points per cup)
