DIRECTIONS

  • Remove tops from green pepper and clean insides. Try to level bottoms of peppers if needed, so they will stand flat. Chop tops of peppers and set aside. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In large skillet, brown ground turkey, garlic powder, onion powder and pepper for about 5 minutes.
  • When turkey is almost done, add rice and beans mix, green pepper tops, and water. Cover, and cook for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • When rice is tender, turn off heat. Stir in tomato sauce, and taste the mixture for seasoning. You may need to add more garlic and/or pepper to suit your family's taste.
  • Spray an 8x13 glass pan with cooking spray. Carefully stuff peppers with turkey mixture. (It's hot!) and set peppers in greased pan. They will be slippy, but it makes for an easier clean up.
  • Bake peppers for 20-40 minutes, depending on how soft you like your peppers.
  • When peppers reach desired tenderness, top with shredded cheese. Remove peppers from oven when cheese reaches a nice, melty state.
  • Be careful. Remember, you greased the pan, so the peppers may slide.
  • Let rest 5 minutes, and enjoy!
