Why I Love This Recipe

After looking for the perfect recipe for this, I made one up using what I wanted included. They turned out great!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 T. olive oil
1/2 c. diced onion
1/2 c. diced carrot
1/2 c. diced red bell pepper
1/2 c. diced green bell pepper
1 t. oregano
1/8 t. cayenne pepper
1/4 lb. ground turkey, browned and drained of grease
2 medium to large green bell peppers, seeded
1 c. salsa
1 c. cooked quinoa*
1/4 to 1/2 c. shredded cheese


Preheat oven to 375. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium head. Add diced vegetables, garlic and herbs to cook, stirring often, until vegetables begin to soften. Add quinoa and turkey and cook, stirring. Add salt and pepper and salsa. Remove from heat.

Partially cook peppers by steaming them in microwave for 2-3 minutes in a covered dish with 2 tablespoons of water.

Fill peppers with quinoa mixture; place in a baking dish and cover loosely with foil and bake until peppers are tender, 20 minutes. Top with cheese and bake another 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Serve with tortillas.
