DIRECTIONS

  • Simmer the garlic with a small amount (2 t) of oil and proceed to brown the ground turkey in a large skillet (you'll be adding other ingredients to it). Add taco seasoning or spices while the meat is still raw.
  • Cook rice by adding 2 cups water. It's OK if it's a bit harder than normal because it will cook more in the casserole.
  • Prepare 9 x 13 casserole dish by spraying and lining bottom of the pan with pieces of bell pepper. I cut the peppers so that they lie mostly flat, inside facing up.
  • Once the meat has browned, add the WHOLE can of black beans, but drain the tomatoes. ***If you do not have prepared black beans, use plain cooked beans and add 1/3 cup water to the mixture to keep it from drying out.
  • Mix a couple scoops of rice to the mixture, then pour remaining rice in the casserole dish, on top of the peppers.
  • Pour the skillet mixture over the rice.
  • Cover with foil and bake at 375 for about 30 minutes. I like to add 1/4 cup water half way through baking to make sure the peppers steam without getting too mushy.
  • To serve, sprinkle with your favorite cheese, salsa, fresh tomatoes, onions, lettuce, jalapenos -- .
