Number of Servings: 2


    2 large bell peppers (red is sweetest!)
    1/2 lb. ground turkey
    1/2 c. chopped onion
    1.5 servings of brown rice (3/4 cup dry)
    1/2 c. tomato sauce
    1 slice pepper jack cheese
    1 tsp. chili powder


Slice peppers in half (either way), and remove ribs and seeds. Place in a glass baking dish, sprayed with cooking spray, and bake at 350 for 15 minutes.

While peppers are cooking, prepare brown rice as directed on package. Cook ground turkey in a shallow skillet, seasoning with as much spiciness as you like. Mix cooked rice, turkey, chopped onion, tomato sauce, and crumbled cheese in a medium mixing bowl.

Remove peppers from oven and fill with rice and turkey mixture, top with cheese if desired (not included in nutritional info), and bake for an additional 20 minutes.

One entire dinner - fiber, protein, and veggies - tucked in a nice little package!

Makes 2 servings, one whole pepper each.
(I had a little extra filling leftover for my boyfriend to take in a pita for lunch the next day!)

    EXCELLENT!! I added 1 chopped tom, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp italian seasoning, 1 tsp garlic powder and a bit more tomato sauce. The red peppers are SO sweet and tender... it's a perfect combo. Also, I make a double batch and freeze half to have for a quick and easy meal later. DELICIOUS!! - 1/13/09

    Making it tonight! :) Didn't have rice, so made it with quinoa. We also had a little "left-over" red wine, so I poured some of that in with the meat/veg mixture. Delicious! - 9/5/13

    I always double filling, as suggested by someone else and add cumin, garlic and italian seasoning. We are big on sauce, so a little extra tom sauce... we LOVE this recipe! - 2/28/11

    These were so tasty! I added some diced peppers (small) to the mixture too. Definitely would make again! - 4/6/10

    I just made these and they were a hit. I prefer my peppers a little more crisp so I didn't pre-bake them. I also cooked the onion with the ground turkey and added about 1.5T of minced garlic as well as some Italian seasoning. They were a bit dry though so next time I'll add more tomato sauce. - 8/4/09
