My Eats: Healthy Stuffed Bell Peppers

When I'm in need of a quick and filling recipe for dinner, this is my go-to! The picture above is of HoneyB's bell pepper, hence all the cheese. I do have to admit, it was the best looking one. Yum!
  • 5 medium bell peppers - I mix yellow, orange, red and green for fun =)
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 pounds extra-lean ground turkey
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/4 teaspook paprika
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 medium tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 package (7 ounces) shredded low-fat cheddar cheese
  • Chopped green onion for serving

  • Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a pan, pour the oil and saute the onion until softened.
  • Add the turkey, cumin, garlic, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat, stirring and breaking up the ground turkey until cooked through.
  • After the meat is cooked, transfer to a bowl and mix with the brown rice and tomatoes.
  • Cut the tops off the bell peppers and hollow out by removing the seeds and core.
  • Spoon the meat and rice mixture into the hollowed out bell peppers.
  • Place stuffed peppers on baking sheet and cook in oven for 20-25 minutes, until peppers are tender.
  • Remove from over, top with shredded cheese and cook for 3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Serve topped with green onion and enjoy!
