- 1 lb 99% ground turkey
- Two green peppers
- 2 cups steamed cauliflower
- 2 cups 2% reduced fat cheese
- reduced sodium taco seasoning
- 1/2 cup green chiles
- ground white pepper (optional)
Preheat oven to 350º.
Brown ground turkey and add taco seasoning – prepare as directed.
Cut the top off and clean out the green peppers.
Steam 2 cups of cauliflower.
Take 1/2 of the fully cooked and seasoned ground turkey and put it into another pan. Add 1/2 can of green chiles, 2 cups of cheese and steamed cauliflower. This is where I added ground white pepper just because I looooooove the taste of it. I added about 2 tbsp. Mix until cheese melts.
Scoop 1/2 of mixture into each of the prepared green peppers. (Some recipes have you boil the green pepper first, but I like some crunch to this meal so I didn’t cook them first.) Sprinkle a bit of cheese over the top.
Bake for 20-30 minutes.
