Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers

Posted by

Today I am sharing a recipe for stuffed peppers, something I always make a ton of when it’s warm out AND when bell peppers go on sale. Usually when I plan my menu I look for ingredients that are on sale so that I don’t get bored eating the same things each and every week. Shopping by the sales forces me to try new meats and vegetables. This week, I stocked up on that sales for ground turkey and bell peppers. The perfect pairing!


Ground Turkey Stuffed Peppers


  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 package white mushrooms
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp chili pepper
  • 2 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 shake smoked paprika
  • 1 shake cinnamon
  • salt & pepper
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 2 large bell peppers, halved


In a medium pan, sauté mushrooms in olive oil until they begin to brown. Once brown, add in onion and salt and cook until tender. Scoot mushrooms and onions to outskirts of the pan and place ground turkey in the center. Break up turkey into crumbles and add seasonings and garlic. Continue to cook turkey in center of pan until outsides are white then stir into mushrooms and onions. Once turkey is completely cooked, add salsa and combine. Allow to heat through and thicken, depending on how chunky it is.

Microwave bell peppers for 2-3 minutes, depending on size, until they are tender. Fill each pepper with 1/4 of turkey mixture. Top with cheese, avocado, lime, and cilantro.
