Stuffed Peppers


1-lb. ground turkey/beef

1 package Mexican rice or yellow rice

1 packet of taco seasoning

1 pouch of Cheddar cheese

Large peppers (1-lb. beef fills about 4 peppers)

This happens to be super yummy and healthy stuffed peppers in the making.  Lately the entire crew has been enjoying Mexican food so it's my "go to" list at least once a week.  The boys LOVE peppers so I decided to give this recipe a whirl.

My recipes tend to vary as I use whatever ingredients are in the refrigerator and pantry, but here's the jist of it.  Feel free to adjust to your liking.

1.) Turn oven to 350*

2.) Cook rice as directed

3.) Brown turkey/beef

4.) While the meat is browning and the rice is cooking wash, cut, and "gut" the peppers

5.) Steam the peppers until they soften

6.) Add taco seasoning to the turkey or beef

7.) Combine the ground beef/turkey with the rice

8.) Fill each pepper with the rice and beef/turkey mixture about half way and sprinkle with a bit a cheese on top. Fill the remainder of the pepper and cover with cheese.

9.) Bake the peppers until the cheese begins to bubble.

;)  Enjoy!
