STUFFED BELL PEPPER WITH GROUND TURKEY

I like this low cal, high protein dish.   You can do any colored bell pepper, but I prefer red because it’s high in vitamin C and vitamin A (and it’s pretty).

Ingredients:

– 1 red bell pepper (stem and seeds removed)

– 1/4 lb of lean ground turkey

– 1/2 cup of diced tomatoes with green chilies

– 1/4 cup of diced mushrooms

– 1/2 tbsp of cayenne pepper

– low fat mozzarella cheese

– black pepper

In a medium skillet, brown ground turkey with a little olive oil and add in tomatoes and mushrooms with spices.  After the turkey is cooked through, scoop into bell pepper.  Place the bell pepper in a deep baking dish with about 3 inches of water depth.  Bake in oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.  I like a little low fat mozarella cheese sprinkled on top before putting it into the oven.
