Way back on our second date, we decided to make dinner together.  This dish was the perfect choice: Hard to mess up, tastes great, and all the colorful peppers make such a fun atmosphere around the table. That was the first of many meals we’ve cooked together, so it was definitely a success!

These Turkey Stuffed Peppers are also easy to modify. Tyler loves mushrooms and Lauren can’t stand them, so we added them in after two of the peppers were already stuffed. If you prefer beef over turkey, that would work just as well, too.

And we know the barbecue sauce may not seem like the right topping for stuffed peppers, but just trust us. A little goes a long way, and it adds the perfect amount of extra flavor.

These peppers are pretty filling, but they also pair well with our Sweet Potato Fries if you want to round out the meal.

Instructions
  1. Cook rice, then set it aside. (We like to use a rice cooker or instant rice, depending on how much time we have.)
  2. Cut off the tops of the peppers and hollow out the interior. You may also need to cut off a sliver of the bottoms (don't cut so much that there's a hole) to help the peppers stand up straight.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  4. Cook turkey on the stove over medium heat, breaking it apart as it cooks.
  5. Once the turkey is browned, add the onion, garlic, pepper, cumin, and mushrooms (if everyone likes them). Stir and cook for another two minutes.
  6. In a large bowl, mix the rice, meat, and veggies.
  7. Spoon the mixture into each pepper.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes. Swirl your favorite gluten-free barbecue sauce over the top before serving.
Recipe Notes

Depending on the size of your peppers, you may have some of the filling mixture leftover. It's pretty tasty on its own!

To get the most out of your pepper, you can dice the tops that you cut off. We like to use them in eggs the next day for another colorful meal.

SPREAD THE LOVE
