Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers


I have to admit that I am not a huge ground turkey lover. Typically, I would much rather just use extra lean ground beef…until I made these stuffed peppers! I have made stuffed peppers before, but this is the first time that I have used ground turkey in place of the beef. I have to say, I will stick with the ground turkey for this one! The Mexican flavors work very well with the ground turkey, leaving your tummy very happy:)

This is such a simple recipe, so anyone can make this:)

  • Gather all ingredients. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

  • Spray a pan with cooking spray and add the ground turkey.

  • Cook on medium to high heat for about 5-7 minutes, stirring frequently to ensure all of the meat is thoroughly cooked and browned.

  • Add about 3/4 a packet of low sodium taco seasoning. You can choose your level of spice (mild, medium, hot). Add about 1/2 cup of your favorite salsa. Stir and sauté this for a few more minutes, making sure to mix well. Add a few drops of water if necessary.

  • While the meat is cooking, clean and cut the bell peppers. You can use any color you would like.

  • Place the bell peppers into an oven safe dish. Scoop the turkey meat into each pepper and then top with a sprinkle of Mexican blend cheese (2-3 tbsp).

  • Place the peppers in the oven and cook on 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

  • While the meat is cooking, clean and chop up about 1 cup of fresh tomatoes and 2 jalapenos. Add the vegetables to a separate pan and pour the remaining taco seasoning into the pan as well.

  • Saute the vegetables on medium to high heat for about 5 minutes, and then add 1/2 cup of your favorite salsa. Saute for another 2 minutes or so.

  • Plate the peppers with a side of the salsa and enjoy them together!
