Stuffed Peppers

The recipe calls for:
4 peppers
1/2 lb ground turkey, cooked
2 cups rice
1 can black beans
1/2 cup frozen corn
1 cup onion, chopped/cooked
1 tbs taco seasoning
1 15 oz jar of salsa
cooking spray

-- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
-- Cut the peppers in half and cut out the insides.  Disregard.  Spray cooking oil on both sides of the peppers, place in a baking dish and cook in the oven for 20 minutes.
-- In a large bowl mix together the turkey meat, rice, black beans, corn, onion, taco seasoning and the salsa.
-- Spoon the mixture into each pepper halve.
-- Bake in the oven for another 15 minutes.

The toppings I used were avocado and light sour cream, but cheddar cheese, cilantro and even some shredded lettuce are other good choices.  In you want to sprinkle some cheese on them bake the peppers for a little longer until the cheese melts.

These stuffed peppers are very healthy, filling and a good source of fiber, protein and vegetables.  I had some mixture left so I made some healthy whole wheat tortilla tacos.  Great leftovers for the next day!
