Simply Stuffed Peppers

This is one of my favorites! The prep time is short, the cook time is well worth the short wait! 

There are endless combinations as to what you can put in your peppers. In my opinion, this is one of the easiest. Here's what you'll need!

  • 8 bell peppers
  • 5 cups cooked brown rice
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup cooked diced cooked onion
  • 2 cups sliced cooked mushrooms
  • 2 pounds cooked ground turkey (with 1 tablespoon cumin, 1 teaspoon chili powder)
  • 1 cup light sour cream
  • mozzarella cheese (to top off the peppers)
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Combine your cooked rice, diced cooked onion, sliced cooked mushrooms, 2 pounds of ground cooked turkey, and light sour cream.
Cut off the top of each of your peppers.
Stuff each of your peppers.
You should have plenty of your rice filling leftover to label and freeze for a quick weeknight dinner.
Top each pepper with approximately two tablespoons of cheese.
Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until cheese is brown and bubbly!
I put four of the peppers in the fridge for dinners this week, and four in the freezer for dinners to come! Enjoy!
