Mexican Stuffed Peppers

6-7 Bell Peppers, tops and seeds removed
1lb Turkey Meat
Taco Seasoning (see additional recipe below)
Fresh Shredded Cheddar Cheese (optional)

Brown turkey meat and drain. Add taco seasoning and a bit of water. Stir until all mixed and warm. Remove from burner and set aside.


Preheat oven to 350.
Put a bit of water in the bottom of a glass plan (this will keep you from having to boil your peppers!) and set your peppers on top.



Fill peppers with taco meat and top with cheese, if desired. Bake in oven for 30 minutes.
