  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. ground cumin

Taco Stuffed Bell Peppers


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees f.
  2. Slice peppers in half lengthwise. Remove seeds.
  3. I place them in a large pot of boiling water for 3 minutes, then drain very well. Just to make them easier for kids to eat.
  4. Place peppers, evenly in a glass baking dish. Set aside.
  5. Sauté onions with the oil for 2-3 minutes, then add the turkey in a skillet and cook until just browned.
  6. Add the seasoning, and corn (if using) and continue cooking until the meat is just cooked.
  7. Drain. Add salsa. Stir.

In a large mixing bowl combine:

  • Your precooked turkey
  • All remaining ingredients
  • 2 Tbsp chopped green onions
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • Juice of 1-2 fresh squeezed limes
  • sea salt and pepper to taste

Combine ingredients, scoop tightly into peppers.

Bake at 350 for about 15-20 until heated through.
