Stuffed Peppers

 This recipe earned its way into my Go To Recipes. 
Simply Love Food's Southwestern
Recipe Adapted from Simply Love Food

Since, my sister-in-law Julie has been a big part of this blog, I asked her to share her
 GO TO recipe with me and my readers.  I wanted to feature something she makes for her family.  She gave me a recipe she got on Pinterest for Southwestern Stuffed Pepper.
 I would suggest this recipe to anyone that likes stuffed peppers and Mexican food. 

1/2 lb lean ground turkey breast 
1 cup chopped onions
1 heaping tbsp of homemade taco seasoning (or you can use the packaged type if you like)
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups of cooked rice (any type you like) 
3-4  bell peppers, halved and seeds removed
1 can of black beans, drained & rinsed I didn't have any
½ cup of frozen corn
1 (15 -16 ounce) jar of salsa ( I used a chipotle salsa)
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Garnish with these toppings: fresh cilantro, sour cream,sliced avocado

Step 1.  Cook 2 cups of rice
Step 2.  Cut the peppers in half and seed them.
Step 3.  Boil the peppers for about 15 to 20 minutes, if you like them soft.
Step 4.  In a frying pan saute the hamburger, add the taco seasoning,onion, and 1 teaspoon salt.
Step 5.   Add the 16 oz jar of salsa or 2 cups homemade.
Step 6.  Add 1/2 Cup frozen corn I used Trader Joe's frozen grilled corn

Spoon the hamburger mixture into each half of the bell peppers and place back into the baking dish. Cook the peppers for another 15-20 minutes or until the peppers are cooked all the way.  Before removing from the oven sprinkle the tops of each pepper with shredded cheddar cheese. Place back into the oven until the cheese has melted.
Remove from the oven and top with fresh cilantro, avocado slices and/or sour cream just before serving.
I also wanted to Thank Brandi at Simply Love Food for sharing her recipes and inspiring people to cook.
