Ingredients

  • ½ cup brown rice, cooked
  • ½ lb lean ground turkey
  • 2 red bell peppers, cap cut off and seeded
  • ½ red onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, diced
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 fresh tomato, diced
  • 2-3 tsp dried basil
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • ¼ cup parmesan cheese, shredded
  • ¼ cup Colby jack cheese, shredded
  • Olive oil spray (I use Pam)

Directions

  • Cook brown rice as directed
  • Preheat oven to 375degrees
  • Cut tops off of bell peppers and remove seeds/whites
  • Spray oven safe baking dish with olive oil and place cleaned peppers in it
  • Heat olive oil in large skillet on medium heat; add onion and garlic and saute until fragrant
  • Add the ground turkey to the skillet and brown
  • After ground turkey is browned, add tomatoe, oregano and basil, and jalapeno
  • Mix well and cook for about 5 minutes
  • Add cooked rice and parmesan, mix well and blend together
  • Once cooked through, begin stuffing each bell pepper with the cooked mixture. Pack tightly in bell peppers.
  • Place baking dish (with packed bell peppers) in oven for about 30 minutes
  • Remove from oven, sprinkle Colby jack cheese on top, and place back in oven for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted.

These stuffed bell peppers are so delicious and are great on their own – I honestly ate mine with a bit of sriracha sauce added on!
