A couple of people have asked me to post this recipe, so here ya go.
I'm telling you, these stuffed peppers were dee-lish-us! And the good news is...not only are they great-tasting, they are easy to make, and good for you. With only 177 calories per pepper, and 13.2 g of protein.
Here's what you need:
3 green peppers, halved
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic
1/2 pound ground turnkey, 93% lean
1 can stewed tomatoes, no salt added
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, 50% light
1 tsp chili powder
Cook brown rice according to directions on package
Pre-heat oven to 375
In a large skillet, sautee ground turkey, onion, garlic, chili powder and pepper
Remove from heat and add stewed tomatoes and brown rice.
Remove from water and place upside down to drain. (I forgot to take a picture of this step)
Arrange pepper halves in large baking dish and fill with meat mixture
Sprinkle cheese on top of each half and bake at 375 for 15 minutes
but be careful!
As you are taking a picture of it, they might think you are distracted and try to add more cheese
and spill it all over the counter and floor
Let me know if you try this.
I'm linking up to these great parties!
