HEALTHY Stuffed Green Peppers

First off, give me Mexican food and I am a happy camper....however, my When I started eating clean and really watching my nutrition I made it my mission to "clean up" my favorite meals and make them healthier. I didn't want to feel deprived and like I was missing out. I am an only child (well, I have a half-brother but he lives far away and he's 13 so I grew up an only child....) and the whole "missing out" feeling... I am just not a fan. :) So, before I ramble on too much about life and such, here is my recipe for stuffed green bell peppers! You will need:
  • Ground turkey with low sodium taco seasoning
  • Spanish rice with diced tomatoes
  • Black beans
  • Low fat shredded cheese 
  • Greek yogurt (plain)
  • Salsa
  • And if you want to be my best friend, Cholula sauce

Cut the top off a green pepper, scoop out the inside, and fill with all the above, except the Greek yogurt, salsa and will add that at the end. I've layered it and I've mixed it all together. Tastes the same either way! Top with some low fat cheese and bake @ 350 for 30-35 minutes. 

These are great right out of  the oven or warmed up as leftovers! I usually make about 4 bell peppers and then freeze the rest of the meat/rice/bean mixture for later use. :) Enjoy!
