I have to admit something to myself and my readers. I…am addicted to…Pinterest. There I said it. Wow that felt good to say/write. To help overcome my fanaticism over my online photo clip board, I decided I needed to actually start some of the projects that I have clipped. Starting of course with the recipes. So here is my first Pinterest inspired blog post: The Turkey Stuffed Peppers from Skinnytaste.com
Now I will say this recipe is very healthy and is not that hard to make. However, it really is skinny on the taste too. The next time I make this I will definitely be adding more seasoning. But for now, I mostly followed the recipe and will show you how it looks.
- 1 lb lean chopped Turkey Meat
- 1 Garlic, minced (I am terrible at mincing so mine was more of a rough dice)
- 1/4 Onion, minced (Same thing here, I got lazy and did a dice cut)
- 1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
- 1 teaspoon Cumin Powder
- Salt to taste
- 3 large sweet Red Bell Peppers, washed ( I used the yellow kind because it was cheaper)
- 1 cup fat free Chicken Broth
- 1/4 cup Tomato Sauce
- 1 1/2 cups Cooked Rice
- Olive oil spray
- 1/4 cup Reduced Fat Shredded Cheese
Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
Step 2: Spray a little olive oil spray in a medium pan over medium-high heat.
Step 3: Add onion and garlic to the pan. Saute about 2 minutes.
Step 4: Add ground turkey, salt, garlic powder, and cumin. Break the meat apart into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon. Cook for several minutes until meat is completely cooked through.
Step 5 : Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup of chicken broth, mix well and simmer on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Step 6: Combine cooked rice and meat together.
Step 7: Cut the bell peppers in half lengthwise, and remove all seeds. Place in a baking dish.
Step 8: Spoon the meat mixture into each pepper half and fill it with as much as you can.
Step 9: Pour the remainder of the chicken broth on the bottom of the pan.
Step 10: Cover tight with aluminum foil and bake for about 35 minutes.
Step 11: Top with shredded cheddar cheese.
Step 12: Eat and Enjoy!
