Now the fun stuff....I make these yummy stuffed peppers and get this, only 112 k-cals a serving. The kids absolutely love them (they eat two though). I used to make these with rice and tons of cheese, so I scaled it back a lot and added some 'hidden' veggies making them much healthier.
Stuffed Mexican Peppers
1 pound low fat ground turkey (93% fat free)
1 15-oz can of black beans - drained
1 15-oz can diced tomatoes - not drained
1 4-oz can of green chilis
1 sweet onion, coarsely chopped
1 zucchini, finely chopped
1 cup of finely chopped muschrooms
1 package of taco seasoning
1/4 c of water
1/2 2% cheddar or mexican blend
8 red peppers, cut in half length-wise and cored
Ooops, forgot to add the onion to my picture above....
Brown onion and turkey together
Once browned add tomatoes, chilis, 1/4 c of water & taco seasoning, bring to boil and then reduce heat to low and let simmer give minutes. Then add, chopped mushrooms, zucchini and beans. Slice peppers in half length-wise, core them and placed on Pam-sprayed baking sheet.
Ooops, forgot to put the cheese in my picture ingredients...stuff peppers with turkey mixture and top with cheese.
Place in preheated 350 oven and bake uncovered for 30 minutes....I kept trying but couldn't take the picture fast enough to see the oven read 30 minutes...so it's a second short of what it should be.
There's enough meat to have two family meals, so we freeze half for another time
Here's me -- the cook...you never see pictures of the cook and I love my apron.
Oh it makes 16 servings (or 8 for now, 8 for another time).
