Stuffed Peppers

I don't think I could love Pinterest anymore... aside from style inspirations, DIY projects, and home decor ideas I find the best recipes! My latest experiment was with stuffed peppers. My mom used to make them all the time, and yet I had never tried to make them myself.

I made these even healthier by swapping out ground beef with ground turkey ;-)


~ Ground turkey

~ Can of no salt added corn (drained)

~ Can of reduced sodium black beans (drained)

~ 2 cups of cooked brown rice

~ 4 peppers (de-seeded)

~ 2 tbsp. of reduced sodium taco seasoning

~ Chopped scallions

~ Reduced fat cheddar cheese

~ Fat free sour cream

~ Extra virgin olive oil


Brown the turkey in a pan and set aside

Cook the rice according to directions and set aside

Mix rice, turkey, taco seasoning, corn, beans, scallions, and cheese together in a large bowl. 

Cut the tops off the peppers and remove seeds

Drizzle extra virgin olive oil on the inside and cook peppers at 400 degrees for 20 minutes without anything inside. Remove from oven and wait until they are cool enough to touch. Once they're cool enough, fill with "stuffing" and place back in oven for another 20 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle cheese on top of the peppers and place back in the oven for a few minutes until cheese melts. Then dollop sour cream on top and enjoy.

Yummy, filling, and guilt free!
