Turkey Stuffed Peppers

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.

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!!
