DIRECTIONS

  • Cut the tops off the green peppers. Discard the seeds and membranes. Chop enough of the tops to equal 1/2 to 3/4 cup and set aside.
  • Cook the cleaned peppers in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Invert to drain and dry with paper towels if necessary. Sprinkle the insides with a little salt.
  • In a skillet coated with cooking spray or 2 tbls. olive oil cook the ground turkey, chopped onion, and the chopped green pepper until the turkey is cooked through and the vegetables are a little soft. Ground turkey can overcook quickly so be careful not to brown it like you would for ground beef. Drain off any excess liquid that has accumulated.
  • Add the tomatoes and green chilis, uncooked rice, water, salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce heat. cover and simmer for about 18 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in the shredded cheese. Adjust the seasonings if necessary.
  • Place the peppers in a 13x9 baking dish. Stuff them with the meat mixture. cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
  • *optional: once the peppers are stuffed top them with whatever spaghetti sauce you have on hand, cover with foil and then bake. This is my favorite way!
