Olive Oil ( I used Tahitian lime olive oil)
1/2 lb lean ground turkey breast
1 cup chopped onions
1 heaping tbsp of homemade taco seasoning (or you can use the packaged type if you like)
2 cups of cooked rice (any type you like I like brown)
3-4 organic bell peppers, halved and seeds removed
1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed
cup of organic frozen corn
1 (15 -16 ounce) jar of salsa (my favorite is mango peach)
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
fresh cilantro
sour cream
sliced avocado
Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat the peppers with olive oil and roast in a baking dish about 20-25 minutes just until cooked thru. Remove the peppers from the oven and allow to cool until you can handle them.

*****Note make sure you cook your turkey ahead of time that way you do not have to worry about it later. Also, sautee the onions until cooked thru, then add in the cooked rice, black beans and corn.

In a bowl add the taco seasoning, cooked ground turkey, chopped onions, black beans, corn and rice. Add in the jar of salsa and mix well.

Carefully spoon the turkey mixture into each half of the bell peppers and place back into the baking dish. Cook the peppers for another 15-20 minutes or until the peppers are cooked all the way thru. Before removing from the oven sprinkle the tops of each pepper with shredded cheddar cheese. Place back into the oven just until the cheese has melted.

Remove from the oven and top with fresh cilantro, avocado slices and/or sour cream just before serving.

    This looks delicious! I wish I'd seen this post sooner, since I bought poblano peppers and quinoa just so I could make some spicy quinoa stuffed peppers this week. Now that I've seen your recipe, I want them NOW!

    Sounds good. I am growing some Italian stuffing peppers this year and this might be a good way to use them.

    My mother made stuffed peppers all the time, but for some reason, I have never made them often.

    Sounds yummy. Do you have a recipe for taco seasoning? Love stuffed peppers and southwest food.

    Sounds yummy! We make a recipe like this but use Wholly Guacamole instead of the avocado, because yours truly can't seem to pick a "good" one (as in ripe but not mushy and brown on the inside), no matter how hard she tries.
