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.

Enchilada Stuffed Peppers from chef-in-training.com ...This is one DELICIOUS dinner! The flavor is absolutely amazing!

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.

    Super yummy!! I used elk hamburger instead of turkey and am very impressed! I used a bundt pan instead & found it very helpful, and I look forward to adding rice next time I make these!

    Soooo yummy! Definitely a favorite in this house. It pops up a couple times in our monthly rotation. We save half the filling for the next night and serve with brown rice. ? Thanks for making eating healthy easier!

  25. JoAnne

    I had leftover filling so the next day I heated it up, put it on taco chips and covered that with shredded cheese. It went into a 300 degree oven to melt the cheese. Yum! Gone in seconds. The family asked me to make them again.

  26. Becky


    I make these at least once a month and they are one of our favorite meals. Yum yum yum!!!!!
