Ingredients

  • Olive oil spray

  • 1/2

    cup minced onion

  • 1

    teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1.25

    pounds of extra-lean ground turkey

  • Salt to taste

  • 1

    teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4

    cup low-sodium tomato sauce

  • 1

    cup fat-free low-sodium chicken broth, divided

  • 1

    tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro or parsley

  • 3

    large sweet red bell peppers, washed

  • 1/4

    cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Blanch the peppers in boiling water. Lightly coat a large nonstick skillet with olive oil cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Add onion and garlic to the pan. Saute about 2 minutes, or until softened. Add extra-lean ground turkey to the pan. Season to taste with salt, then add garlic powder and ground cumin. Break meat apart and cook over medium heat for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned, no longer pink, juices are clear and meat reaches an internal temperature of 165° F. Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup chicken broth to the pan. Reduce heat and simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes. Add chopped fresh cilantro or parsley to the turkey mixture. There will be about 2 cups of turkey mixture. Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds and stem. Put in baking dish and spoon about 1/3 cup of the turkey mixture into each pepper half. Place all stuffed peppers on a baking dish and pour the rest of the chicken broth in the bottom of the pan. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. When done, sprinkle with cheese before serving.
