Turkey Fajita Stuffed Peppers

I recently tried this healthier version of stuffed peppers with lean ground turkey and Italian bread crumbs instead of rice and we love how it turned out.

1 lb. ground turkey
6 green, red or yellow peppers
1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, diced
2 tbsp Worcestershire
1 tsp. Mexican fajita seasoning
10 grape tomatoes, chopped
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 cup canned corn, drained
1 8 oz. can of tomato sauce
1 tbsp Italian spices
1/2 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese

What To Do:
1. Cut the top off the peppers and remove the seeds and membranes. Flash boil peppers for 5 minutes.
2. Cook turkey in skillet with onions, garlic, tomatoes, Worcestershire and fajita seasoning on medium heat for 10 minutes. Add bread crumbs and corn and cook for an additional 5 minutes until turkey is fully cooked.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a spoon to fill each pepper with turkey mixture.

4. Mix tomato sauce with Italian seasoning and top the peppers with sauce. Spray baking dish with cooking spray and bake for 15 minutes.
5. Remove from oven, sprinkle each pepper with shredded cheese and bake for an additional 10 minutes.

  1. Yummy yummy Emily! I make a very similar recipe and we absolutely love it! Sometimes if I don't feel like stuffing the peppers I'll just make the filling in the skillet and top with a little cheese and put under the broiler. I just love meals that use ground turkey and are so full of flavor like this one! Perfect and thank you for hosting with Miss Kate! I hope you have a terrific Tuesday beauty!
