Turkey Taco Stuffed Peppers

I had some leftover Mexican rice that was crazy spicy. I hate throwing away food, so I repurposed it! This got a thumbs up and I’m definitely making it again only I’ll rein in the chiles. 

5 large Bell Peppers

1 lb Ground Turkey

4 cups Mexican Rice

1 cup Tomato; cored and chopped

1 ½ cups Green Chiles

Salt and Pepper to taste

3 cups Mexican Blend Cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Heat a skillet over medium heat and add a drizzle of olive oil. Brown the ground turkey until fully cooked.
  3. Add the rice, tomatoes, green chiles, salt and pepper. Cook until heated through, then fill the bell peppers and place in a baking dish. Top with the cheese and cover with foil. 
  4. Bake for 30 minutes, then remove the foil and cook for an additional 10 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown. 
  5. Enjoy!
