Southwest Stuffed Red Peppers

These were so good, I added my own twist!

 Mix all the ingredients together...
 Stuff peppers..
 top with cheese...

Stuffed Bell Peppers


1 medium onion, chopped
16 oz lean ground turkey or chicken ( I used ground turkey)
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 T chili powder (decrease to 1/2 T if you don't like spicy food)
1 T ground cumin
16 oz jar salsa (any flavor, but make it something you like.)
1 cup cooked rice (I used Mexican Rice from those rice packets found in the store where rice is located)
1 can of black beans rinsed and drained
1 cup shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
sour cream (topping optional)
avocado (topping Optional)


1. Heat oven to 350. Cut three large bell peppers in half and remove seeds.

2. In a large skillet over medium heat, brown turkey with onions. Add minced garlic, chili powder and cumin and stir and cook 1 minute. Stir in salsa and rice.

3. Place cut bell peppers on a cookie sheet and divide turkey mixture evenly among them. Top with cheddar cheese and bake for 17. 

4. Serve with sour cream, avocado and spinach on top.

  1. These were a hit at our house, I think next time we are going to use chorizo in them instead of the ground turkey!
