Enjoy this leaner version of stuffed peppers. This recipe is full of flavor, but light on the fat.
- 6 bell peppers (I prefer green)
- ½ lb ground turkey
- ½ cup chopped mushrooms
- ½ cup chopped onions
- 4 cloves of garlic
- 1 pkg of your favorite Mexican rice mix (I like Rice-a-Roni)
Rice-A-Roni Spanish Rice Mix, 6.8 Ounce
- 1 tsp chili powder
- Salt & pepper to taste
- ½ cup light mozzarella cheese
Cook Mexican rice according to package directions, and brown the ground turkey. Add onions, mushrooms, garlic, and seasonings to the turkey. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove tops and seeds from peppers. Mix browned turkey with Mexican rice. Stuff peppers and add tops. Arrange peppers in baking dish and add ¼ cup of water to the bottom. Put the dish in the oven for an hour, or until peppers are tender. After taking the peppers out, sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top, and allow it to melt.
Serve with a side salad and enjoy your yummy stuffed peppers!
