Makes: 3-4 servings

 

Ingredients:

 

3 large green bell peppers, halved and de-seeded

½ pound lean ground turkey

½ onion, diced

1 15 oz. can of black beans

1 15 oz. can of corn

1 Tbsp taco seasoning

Shredded cheese for topping

 

Directions:

 

1. Place your green pepper halves upright on a baking sheet. Drizzle some olive oil over them and place them in a preheated oven at 350 degrees. Let them bake for 20-25 minutes or until they are blistering.

2. While the peppers are baking, in a large skillet, sauté the diced onions in olive oil. Once the onions are tender, add in the ground turkey. Once cooked all the way through, add the taco seasoning, rinsed black beans and corn. Combine all ingredients and let cook for 5 minutes longer.

3. Take your pepper halves place them in a casserole dish. Scoop the filling inside the peppers – overstuffing the peppers is good. If you have extra filling, you can fill in around the peppers

4. Top with a shredded cheese of your liking. Place the casserole dish under the broiler until your cheese is melted

5. Enjoy!
