Mexican Turkey-Stuffed Peppers


No, these aren't your college cafeteria stuffed peppers. I used Kalyn's Southwestern Stuffed Peppers recipe, with some modifications. (recipe here; http://kalynskitchen.blogspot.com/2006/12/southwestern-stuffed-peppers-recipe.html )

I used ground white-meat turkey instead of beef, didn't add the rice, used a half can Trader Joe's Cuban-Style black beans (delicious), added a cup of corn instead of rice, threw in a good handful of chopped cilantro, and only used a small dusting of cheese on the top of each pepper.

They were really tasty, and I figured the six peppers came in at a bit over 200 calories apiece.

In other news, back into the smaller size jeans!

Thanks Amy for this recipe. I'm trying it tonight with the corn instead of rice as you said. Looks good and just perfect for our current weight conscious diets for summer.


Amy, I think I will try these with TJ's meatless meatballs instead of the ground meat and with soy cheese... thanks for the recipe, it looks awesome!


Congrats on the jeans - and thanks for the recipe.

Congrats on the smaller size jeans. That is awesome. The recipe sounds great. I need to come up with a meatless version. I suspect I can leave out the meat and put beans in instead. hmmmm... that just might work.


Shannon and Marta--I'll bet a mixture of tvp, beans and rice with the other ingredients would be great!


Thanks for sharing this recipe, Amy. DH & I are both on diets. I need some new recipes.
