Number of Servings: 8


    20 oz. 93% lean ground turkey
    2 cups cooked brown rice
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    1 onion, chopped
    1 tsp ground thyme
    4 large red or yellow bell peppers
    1 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and
    1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 to 1 tsp cayenne or chipotle powder (optional)
    1 8 oz. can tomato sauce
    1 tsp Italian seasoning


Use 1/2 tsp of cayenne or chipotle powder for mild heat, use the full teaspoon for a spicier dish.


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
3. Sautee onions in olive oil until softened, about 5 minutes.
4. Add garlic, ground turkey, and thyme to the onions and cook until the turkey is cooked through.
5. Cut bell peppers in half vertically, keeping the stem attached, this will help the peppers keep their shape during cooking. Remove seeds and membranes from the peppers.
6. Stir the diced tomatoes, worcestershire, and cayenne pepper into the turkey mixture until well blended and the tomatoes release some of their liquid.
7. Stir the brown rice into the turkey mixture.
Spoon an equal amount of the turkey mixture into each bell pepper half and place in a 13 x 9 dish. Combine the tomato sauce and Italian seasoning and pour over the stuffed peppers in the baking dish.
8. Bake until the peppers are tender, about one hour.
