Stuffed Bell Peppers

It's been awhile, blog-land. 

I didn't mean to take a break from posting, but 2017 was pretty ho-hum.  No big house projects.  No vacations.  Nothing really noteworthy. 

Now here I am with my fifth snow day of 2018, and I have the hankering to write again.  Mainly for the purpose of remembering a concoction I made last night.  (But also maybe a little grading avoidance too.)

Anyway, after pouring over three different recipes for stuffed bell peppers, I decided to make my own version.  And we loved in order to duplicate them in the I am....


1 lb of ground turkey
1 can of red enchilada sauce
1/2 cup green salsa
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 cup of black beans ~ drained
1/2 cup of thawed frozen corn
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 to 2 cups of grated cheese 
3 to 4 bell peppers

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Brown and drain the ground turkey.  Return the ground turkey to the skillet and stir in the red enchilada sauce, green salsa, cumin, and chili powder.  Once combined stir in the black beans, corn, rice, and cilantro.  Simmer for five minutes.  Remove from heat and stir in cheese, saving some for topping.  Prep the peppers by removing the stems and seeds.  Fill peppers to with mixture and top with cheese.  Bake for 20-25 minutes.

There.  Done.  Return to random blogging complete.  Now I can make these again without straining my brain or forgetting ingredients.

And maybe I'll continue to update this little corner of the internet.  I did get new curtains.  And there is a bedroom makeover in the works. 

We shall see.

Until then, find me on Instagram, which I never abandon for long.
