Stuffed Peppers

Tonight I made Stuffed peppers for dinner that turned out awesome! I didn’t really follow a recipe so I’ll try to remember quantities as I go along.

4 Medium peppers (green, red, yellow, orange whatever you like)
2 Tbs vegetable oil
1 lb of lean ground turkey
1 large onion diced very fine
3 cloves of garlic
2 tsp smoked sweet paprika
3 tsp cumin powder
Optional: raw diced chilies or Chili powder if you like it spicy
Salt and pepper to taste
1 large handful of chopped cilantro

Cut the tops off your peppers and scoop out the seeds. Any extra pepper from the tops can be diced finely and added with the onions. Heat a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add oil and onions, garlic and diced pepper, saute until slightly softened. Then add ground turkey, and spices and cook until meat is browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat and add cilantro. Take your hollow peppers and fill with meat mixture. Place stuffed peppers in a pyrex dish with a 1/2 inch of water in the bottom. cover with tinfoil and bake in a 350F oven for 30-45 min (this will depend on how big your peppers are). Serve with tortillas and fresh cut salsa.

  1. Interesting. Will have to try them with ground turkey in the oven. Have you ever made pan- fried stuffed peppers. One of my favourites. http://bit.ly/fmNCWy
