Stuffed Peppers

Submitted by: ANGELICAK7707


Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    Ingredients:

    1/2 pound ground turkey

    1/2 large onion, diced

    1 cup black beans, rinsed and drained

    1 cup frozen corn

    1 cup brown rice, cooked

    1 tbsp. taco seasoning

    3 large bell peppers, halved, de-seeded

    1 cup of shredded cheese (I used Monterrey jack)


Directions

Instructions:

1.On a large baking sheet, place your pepper halves on them, upright and drizzle olive oil all over them and bake them in the oven at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until peppers are blistering and getting slightly translusent around the edges. Set aside.

2.In the meantime, in a large skillet, saute your onions in a tbsp or two of olive oil until soft. Then add in the ground turkey. Cook the turkey and onions all the way through and then add the taco seasoning. Stir to combine then add in the beans, rice and corn.

3.Cook for about 5 minutes longer then remove from heat.

4.Take the (cooled) halves of peppers and place them in a small casserole dish then using a spoon, scoop the filling inside the peppers. Overstuffing is a good thing :)

5.Sprinkle a good amount of cheese on top of the filling, enough to cover it all, then place under the broiler on high until cheese is melted and bubbly.

6.Serve immediately.
