Southwest Stuffed Peppers

You'll Need - 

1 package of ground turkey (or beef if you prefer)
2 – 4 bell peppers
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1.5 cups of salsa
1 cup of frozen corn
1 tablespoon of cumin (can vary depending how smoky you want it)
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper
hot sauce (to taste)
salt & pepper (to taste)
light shredded cheese

Start by washing the peppers and then cutting off the top with the stem. Spoon out the insides and set them aside.


Next, brown the ground turkey in a sauté pan and season with garlic powder, cumin, pepper flakes and salt and pepper. Add in the beans, salsa and corn and warm through. 

Season with hot sauce and sprinkle with a little bit of cheese to bind everything together. 

Stuff each pepper full of the turkey mix and bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. 

Top each pepper with cheese and pop back in the oven until cheese is melted.

I made two peppers packed FULL and still and had a lot of the filling left over. You could definitely  stretch it to 4 peppers! If you’re running a little short just add in a little extra corn and salsa!
