Stuffed…Peppers That Is

Sorry I’ve been MIA for the past week but this roller coaster ride we call life has thrown some twists, turns, and loops my way. Not all bad bumps…. but a couple. Anyway, I hope to be back at sharing yummy eats and some work out tips with you this week. I’m even going to try my hardest to start Vlogging once a week!

For now check out my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/girlgonehealthycooks This is where the Vlogs will be uploaded, be sure to subscribe so you don’t miss them.

Since it’s Sunday and most people are watching football or maybe you’re having family over I thought I would share this quick, easy, protein and fiber filled recie with you. This is great for feeding the masses or even for a mid week quickie dinner…. I present to you…..

Spicy Turkey and Black Bean Stuffed Peppers

-1 lb white ground turkey

-1 taco seasoning packet

-3 cleaned bell peppers

Don’t toss the tops!!! Chop them up and add them into the turkey mix!

-1 15.5 oz can black beans rinsed and drained

-fat free, reduced fat, or shredded rice cheese for topping

-1 tablespoon minced garlic

In large skillet coated with cooking spray saute your garlic and chopped pepper tops. Once soft add in turkey and cook until done. Pour in black beans and mix well, stir in seasoning mix according to the instructions. Allow mix to thicken. Meanwhile in large pot bring water to boil and allow peppers to blanch. Once peppers are soft and turkey mix is thick, spoon turkey into peppers and top with cheese. Place in pre heated 350 oven and bake until cheese is melted, serve warm!
