Stuffed Bell Peppers

Ingredients

  • 1lb ground turkey
  • Taco seasoning
  • 3/4 cup water & 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 15.25 oz can of corn
  • 2 15.25oz can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15oz can black beans
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 jalapenos (optional)
  • 6 bell peppers
  • cheese of choice

Instructions

  1. You can purchase precooked rice, but if you want to cook it yourself I do a 1:2 ratio (1 cup rice with 2 cups water) and simmer for about 30 minutes until the water evaporates. Its best to cook a bunch and toss in the freezer for easy meal prepping.
  2. Brown meat in large skillet, drain fat.  Add onions and taco seasoning  and stir with 3/4 cup water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes stirring occasionally.
  3. Add in rice, corn, tomatoes, black beans, and jalapenos. Stir and keep warm on low.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  5. Cut tops off of bell peppers and discard seeds and membranes (the beige stuff).
  6. Turn off the heat to the skillet and place bell peppers snug in a baking dish and stuff with skillet mixture. Pour 1/2 cup of water on the bottom of the baking dish. Cover with foil and cook for about 30 minutes.
  7. Remove foil and top with cheese (optional) and continue cooking for 10 minutes. If not adding cheese continue cooking with foil for a total of 40 minutes.
