Southwest Stuffed Peppers

I love stuffed peppers.  My normal recipe involves spicy italian sausage, parmesan & mozzarella cheeses, rice & tomato sauce.  If I may pat myself on the back for a moment, they are pretty dang tasty.  However, I recently decided to try making a somewhat lighter version of which is perfect for Summer…here are my Southwest Stuffed Peppers

 

  • 4 bell peppers
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (I use hot & spicy)
  • 1 can diced tomatoes w/chiles (drained)
  • 1 can black beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1 can corn (drained)
  • A few pinches of cheddar jack cheese-this just couldn’t be omitted

The process was similar to making my usual stuffed peppers, I just made some substitutions as far as ingredients.

  • Cut tops off of peppers, dice (excluding stems) & remove insides, set aside
  • Brown turkey, add taco seasoning (just as if you were preparing for tacos)
  • Add in beans, corn, tomatos & diced peppers and warm through
  • Fill peppers with combined mixture
  • Add a little water at the bottom of the pan, cover with foil
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, remove foil
  • Add cheese on top & bake for another 10 until cheese is melted
  • EAT
