Cut peppers in half lengthwise and discard seeds. In a large kettle, cook peppers in boiling water for 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and rinse in cold water; set aside.
In a large skillet, sauté onion in oil until tender. Add the turkey, cumin, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and pepper; cook and stir over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Transfer to a large bowl; stir in the soy cheese, tomatoes and bread crumbs. Spoon into pepper halves. Place in a 15-inch x 10-inch x 1-inch baking pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with paprika.
Bake, uncovered, at 325°F for 20 to 25 minutes or until heated through and peppers are tender.
