I waded through the sea of school supplies this week with my daughter. I honestly thought that I was getting a jump on the back to school shopping, and yet I was amazed by how many parents and kids were already perusing the aisles with their school lists. I guess I’m not the only one already planning for back to school. This school year will bring new schedule changes for our family, and I’m going to have to be organized to keep up with it all. From school supplies to meal plans, being prepared is key!
My boys have developed a love for bell peppers over the summer, and I have been incorporating them into more recipes. Stuffed peppers are a great way to encourage their love of peppers and to include other ingredients. They make a tasty meal in a small package. Plus, they are easy and quick to make for an after school meal. This recipe will definitely be in a meal plan rotation in our house for weeknight dinner.
I often cook with Butterball Fresh All Natural Ground Turkey, a lower in fat and calories alternative to ground beef. It is versatile and can be used as a replacement for ground beef in a variety of recipes. This all natural main ingredient with no artificial ingredients is a better-for-you alternative. I’m using the Butterball Fresh All Natural Ground Turkey 97/3 variety in this recipe, but the product also comes in 93/7 and 85/15.
- Red, orange, or yellow bell peppers (one for each person)
- 1 lb. Butterball® All Natural Ground Turkey
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon coriander
- 1 teaspoon garlic
- 1 cup quinoa
- Ground pepper
- Pink Himalayan sea salt
- Olive oil
First, cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
While the quinoa is cooking, prep the peppers. Wash the peppers. Cut off the tops, keeping them to the side. Remove the seeds from the inside of the pepper.
- Add different vegetables in the mixture like onions while cooking the ground turkey.
- Sprinkle cheese over the peppers prior to the final baking.
- Stir your favorite salsa into the ground beef mixture before filling the pepper.
- Layer warm beans into the bottom of the pepper before the final baking for even more protein.
