This is one of my favorite recipes from skinnytaste.com. I swear it tastes better every time I make it. This time I added a lot more fresh cilantro than the recipe calls for and it made for really bright, fresh flavors. I ran out of cumin too, so I used paprika which was equally as tasty. A great shortcut I like to use for the rice is one bag of Steamfresh brown rice. Typically, brown rice takes an hour to cook, but 5 minutes in the microwave and the rice is done and ready to be added to the ground turkey. Huge timesaver! You can’t get much more healthy than this recipe and it’s completely satisfying on its own or with a side salad with a nice light vinaigrette.
Ready to be covered with aluminum foil and go into the oven!! Don’t forget to put about 1/2 cup of chicken stock in your baking dish. The chicken stock helps to steam the bell peppers and soften them up.
Once they come out of the oven, top with a little reduced fat shredded cheese, sprinkle with some fresh cilantro and enjoy this simple, healthy, delicious meal!!
