  • - Olive oil, Enough to coat bell peppers
  • 1/2 pounds - Ground beef or turkey meat
  • 1 cups - Onions, Chopped
  • 1 tablespoons - Taco Seasoning, Heaping
  • 2 cups - Rice, Cooked
  • 4 whole - Bell Peppers, Halved and seeds removed
  • 1 cans - Black Beans, Drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cups - Frozen corn
  • 15 - Jar salsa
  • - Shredded cheddar cheese
  • Directions:

    Pre heat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly coat the peppers with olive oil and roast in a baking dish about 20-25 minutes just until cooked thru. Remove the peppers from the oven and allow to cool until you can handle them.

    *****Note – make sure you cook your turkey ahead of time that way you do not have to worry about it later. Also, I sauteed the onions until cooked thru, I then added in my cooked rice, black beans and corn.

    In a bowl add the taco seasoning, cooked ground turkey, chopped onions, black beans, corn and rice. Add in the jar of salsa and mix well.

    Carefully spoon the turkey mixture into each half of the bell peppers and place back into the baking dish. Cook the peppers for another 15-20 minutes or until the peppers are cooked all the way thru. Before removing from the oven sprinkle the tops of each pepper with shredded cheddar cheese. Place back into the oven just until the cheese has melted.

    Remove from the oven and top with fresh cilantro, avocado slices and/or sour cream just before serving.
