Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

These Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers are filled with roasted corn, spices, and so many herbs. Topped with Mexican-blend of cheese!




Ingredients:



Meat

  • 1.5 lbs lean Ground Turkey

Dairy

  • 2 cups Mexican blend of cheeses

Oils & Vinegar

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Produce:

  • 4 Bell peppers
  • Half onion minced
  • 3 Cloves Garlic minced
  • 1 Celery Stalk minced
  • A few leaves of cilantro, parsley, basil, and oregano (you can use fresh or dried)
  • 1 15oz can of corn
  • 16oz can of tomato sauce

Spices

  • 2 & 1/2 tsp red chili powder (we like spicy)
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 packages of chicken cube
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme leaves
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 375.

  1. Heat a skillet with 2tbsp of olive oil and put in the ground Turkey. Let the turkey simmer until it’s no longer pink. Drain all of the excess fluid.
  2. Throw in your minced garlic, onion and celery stalks and mix it. Let the meat simmer for 3 mins.
  3. Pour the tomato sauce in and then add all of your spices.
  4. Now add all of your fresh herbs and lower the heat. Let the meat simmer with all of the herbs.
  5. Cut your bell peppers into halves and place them into a nonstick pan.
  6. Roast your corn on a separate skillet for a few minutes.
  7. Mix the corn and meat together and add 1 cup of the Mexican-blend cheese. Keep the heat on low.
  8. Stuff all of the peppers using a spoon, don’t overfill it. Top the peppers with the remaining cheese.
  9. Cover the pan with foil and bake it at 375 for 20 mins. Then remove the foil and bake it for another 20-25 mins.

You can top these peppers with anything you’d like! I prefer avocados and more cheese. Anything goes 🙂
