Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers

It would have been mean of me to not share this recipe with you. Cruel, in fact. These Turkey Stuffed Bell Peppers from Skinnytaste are so juicy, flavorful, and delicious that with every bite I wished I had about 3 more stomachs to fill with only this meal everyday for the rest of my life. You might want to make them.

Makes 6 servings

Ingredients:

- 1 lb lean chopped turkey meat

- 1 garlic clove, minced

- 1/4 onion, minced

- 1 TBS chopped fresh cilantro or pasley (I used cilantro)

- 1 tsp garlic powder

- 1 tsp cumin powder

- salt to taste

- 3 large sweet red bell peppers (I used red and yellow and both were delicious)

- 1/4 cup tomato sauce (I used Tuscan Traditions Tomato Basil sauce)

- 1 cup fat free chicken broth (I like my chicken broth low-sodium & organic too)

- 1 1/2 cups cooked rice (I used brown rice and it was great!)

- Olive oil/canola oil spray

- 1/4 cup reduced fat shredded cheese

(If you were short on spices, I think that a packet of taco seasoning would be an easy substitute.)

Directions:

Heat oven to 400° F. Spray a little olive oil or canola oil spray in a medium sized saute pan and head on medium. Add onion, minced garlic, and cilantro to the pan. Saute about 2 minutes then add ground turkey. Season with salt and garlic powder, and cumin, and brown meat for several minutes until fully cooked through. Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup of chicken brother, mix well and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. Combine cooked rice and meat together.

Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise and remove all seeds. (I also carefully cut out the stems so that the pepper was still intact.) Spoon the meat mixture into each pepper half and fill it as full as you can. Place all stuffed pepper halves onto a baking dish and pour the remaining chicken broth on the bottom of the pan. Cover tightly with foil and bake for about 35 minutes. Top with shredded cheddar cheese and enjoy!

  3. Frugal Feeding- you should try it! I'm sure it would be quite similar with ground beef too.
