“Stuff Yo’ Peppers” Recipe

21 Nov 2014 | Categories: Let's Eat! | Posted by: LifewithBri

Mmmm, who doesn’t love stuffed peppers? Well I didn’t before I created my very own fun, tasty, yet healthy recipe. Check me out..

Let me just start by stating that I did not follow a recipe!  In fact, I didn’t even look at one, but I had eaten them before in the past and remembered the main ingredients (also giving it a little spin of my own.) Plus, I thought to myself, “how hard could it be to stuff a pepper with ingredients that I already love?”

Ingredients:

My cooking directions:

 

  1. Sautee garlic, onions, mushrooms in olive oil
  2. Add the seasoned turkey meat
  3. Add the pre-washed fresh spinach and let it cook down
  4. Add the rice (cooked) and the 1/4 the bag of the rinsed corn
  5. Add the partially drained diced tomatoes and stirred
  6. Stuff the seeded and rinsed peppers with the ground turkey mix
