Enchilada Stuffed Bell Peppers

As you know, I have been working hard this month to supply some delicious, healthy and/or yummy twists to some classic meals and recipes.

It seems whenever I throw together something on a whim, I always grab and pull out the Mexican-Meal-Themed ingredients from the shelf and fridge. They are my go to ingredients that are approved by my entire family. Thats when I thought to myself, why not put a spin on a classic recipe and add my favorite ingredients to it?!

These Enchilada Stuffed Bell Peppers are AMAZING!

It is an easy, filling meal that is packed with flavor and yummy ingredients; corn, beans, ground turkey (you can easily sub ground beef if you’d liked) and cheese- trust me, its good! Another bonus is that it is pretty quick to throw together, which is perfect for busy schedules.

Skinny Enchilada Stuffed Bell Peppers
  • 5 large bell peppers, I used and array of different colors
  • 1.5 pounds ground turkey
  • 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup corn
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 10 oz. can enchilada sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  1. Carefully cut off the tops of the bell peppers and hollow out the insides. Place in a greased 7x11 baking pan and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, brown turkey until cooked through and juices run clear.
  3. Place turkey in a large mixing bowl and add black beans, corn, cheese, enchilada sauce, cumin and salt and stir to evenly combine ingredients.
  4. Stuff each bell pepper to the top rim. Once each bell pepper is stuffed cover pan with foil.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hour. Remove pan and foil and sprinkle tops with cheese and return to oven to bake uncovered an additional 5 minutes until cheese is melty on top.
