Now that the baby is a month old, we’ve settled into somewhat of a routine that’s worked well enough for the last week that it was time to try to make some new meals. My first attempt was a modified version of this recipe from Pinterest. The result? It was delicious and a big hit in this household. I loved it. I can’t wait to make it again. It didn’t even take that long. The longest thing was cleaning out the insides of the peppers. Here’s the recipe I did, made for a family of 3:
- 1lb lean ground turkey
- 3 bell peppers (I used red but you can use red, yellow and/or orange)
- 1 cup salsa
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp cumin
- 3/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 cup Mexican blend cheese
- Sea salt (recommended 1/4 tsp but I did to taste)
- Black pepper (recommended 1/2 tsp but I did to taste
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Remove the seeds, core, and membrane from the bell peppers. Slice each one in half.
- Cook the ground turkey, breaking it up as it cooks (like you would do for taco meat). Cook until it’s browned and cooked through. Drain any excess fat.
- In a large bowl, mix the cooked turkey with the salsa and spices.
- Evenly distribute the turkey/salsa mix into each bell pepper
- Sprinkle extra Mexican blend cheese on top
- Bake for 10 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the bell peppers are hot.
