Stuffed peppers are the perfect fall + winter recipe that you can enjoy now + save for later in the week! They are great for meal prep + you can even freeze them to reheat. Check out how to make this delicious meal —
- 4 Bell Peppers [Red, Yellow, or Orange!] — look for round ones when shopping
- Brown Rice [Can substitute with quinoa]
- 1 lb. Ground Turkey [Can substitute with black beans, ground chicken or ground beef]
- Mexican blend cheese [Can be left out to be made dairy free]
- 1 Small Onion
- Petite Diced Tomatoes
- 1 Tsp Garlic salt
- Pepper to taste
- 1 tsp Cumin
- Aluminum Foil
#1] Preheat oven to 350 degrees
#2] Cook ground turkey over medium heat until mostly browned [it will finish cooking in the oven so it shouldn’t be 100% done!] Meanwhile, boil rice or quinoa according to directions
#3] Slice tops off of the peppers + set aside. Dice onion into ¼ inch cubes. Mix ¼ cup of cheese, onion, garlic salt, cumin + pepper, rice + can of petite diced tomatoes.
#4] Use a spoon to fill the peppers with the above mixture + press down with each scoop to maximize the space. Once filled, place peppers in a dish, making sure all peppers are stabilized from falling over. Top off each pepper with cheese, if desired.
#5] Cover with a sheet of aluminum foil + cook for 10 minutes, or until cheese is melted and pepper is no longer completely raw
