  • Total Time: 50 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 2 large bell peppers (any color)
  • 1 cup of your preferred type of rice (cooked)
  • 1/2 lb. 93% Lean ground turkey
  • 1 clove garlic (minced)/ one teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 small onion (diced)
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1 8 oz. can of crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Firstly, heat the oven to 350 degrees. Also, prepare one cup of rice and set it aside.
  2. Remove the peppers’ tops. Next, trim the bottoms to make them sit flat in the skillet, remove the seeds, and give them a good rinsing. The peppers should be boiled for 5 minutes in a big pan, then removed from the water and placed upside down on paper towels to dry.
  3. After, olive oil, garlic, and onion should all be added to a big pan and cooked until tender.
  4. Add the turkey and fry until well browned.
  5. Stir in the rice, crushed tomatoes, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
  6. Finally, place the peppers with a sprinkle of salt over them, filled equally with the mixture, in your preferred baking dish or 10-inch cast iron pan that has been gently buttered.
  7. Cook for 25 to 30 minutes uncovered. Remove the tops of the peppers, sprinkle the remaining cheese over them, and bake for a further five minutes, or until the cheese has melted.
