Santa Fe Turkey Stuffed Peppers
American, Tex Mex
Santa Fe Turkey Stuffed Peppers are made with a zesty filling of ground turkey, corn, black beans, hot peppers and tomatoes, topped with melted cheese and scallions.
For the filling:
99% lean ground turkey
canned black beans
(rinsed and drained)
hot pickled serrano pepper
(chopped (or jalepeño) more to taste)
large diced tomato
(plus more for garnish)
kosher salt to taste
For the peppers:
red bell peppers
(cut in half lengthwise)
(fat free chicken broth)
shredded reduced-fat Sargento Monterey Jack cheese
In a large skillet brown the turkey and season with salt.
When the turkey is browned, add onion, garlic, black beans, cilantro, serrano pepper, diced tomatoes, and cumin. Mix well and simmer on low, covered for 5 minutes.
Remove lid, add corn and simmer an additional 5 minutes or until all the liquid reduces.
Preheat oven to 350°.
Cut peppers in half lengthwise, removing seeds and stem.
Place peppers, cut side up in an oven-proof dish. Fill each pepper with 1/2 cup turkey mixture. Pour about 1/3 cup water or chicken broth on the bottom of the dish.
Cover tight with foil. Bake 45-50 minutes, or until the peppers become soft.
Remove foil, top each with 1 1/2 tbsp of cheese and bake uncovered an additional 5 minutes.
Top with scallions and serve with reduced-fat sour cream if desired (optional).
