After searching through my fridge and pantry, I settled on making tacos before church. However, once I started the dinner, I realized I had no tortillas! How can you have a taco with no tortillas, right?!?!Â Yes, I could always use lettuce or something similar, but my kids would definitely not be calling those tacos, haha!
I had purchased several peppers earlier in the week since they were on sale and we LOVE peppers with anything and everything! Deciding to stuff the peppers with taco meat and substitute the tortillas, I went the stuffed pepper route versus normal tacos. Healthier, right?!?!
Not only were these a favorite with my hubby and I, but my 3 kiddos enjoyed these as well. Yes, my pickiest child ended up eating the taco meat and skipping the pepper part, but hey, at least the taco meat was a hit, right
Can you make stuffed peppers ahead of time?
While the filling is cooking, you canprepare the peppers. To do this, slice the ends with the stem off of each pepper about 1/4 inch from the top. Use your hand or a spoon to scoop out the seeds and ribs and place the peppers into a microwave-safe dish with 1/4 cup of water. over the dish with plastic wrap and cook on high in the microwave for 5 minutes to helpsoften the peppersand helpthem hold their shape. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Poor any excess water out of the bottom of the peppers and place them into an oven safe baking dish. Season the peppers with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Do i need to cook my meat before filling my stuffed peppers?
Ne! How genius is that? Simply stuff raw bell peppersâ€”you want them to hold their shape in the oven as they bake, so blanching the peppers before stuffing them with the seasoned ground turkey would soften them, which is the opposite of what tu nori.

I love this recipe because I love recipes that taste great and let my imagination run wild! I added some shredded carrots and used sun-dried tomato paste from a tube so I wouldn't have to open a can just for a tbsp. Made it with red and green peppers. The red peppers win! Now thinking of other possiblities. What about adjusting ingredients and serving in sweet onion shells or tomato shells instead of pepper shells? What about compacting the turkey filling into a loaf pan, topping with tomato/cheese sauce and serving as a turkey meatloaf? What about adding tomato sauce to the turkey mix and ladling it over a toasted mini-bagel and topping everything with a poached egg for brunch? Warning. Have not tried these ideas. Tik galvoju.
A great change from the same old beef and rice filled peppers. Our friends raved about them. I did modify the recipe somewhat. After I stuffed the peppers I simmered them in a homemade tomato sauce for an hour. I used a 13 oz. can of sauce, tablespoon of sugar, teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes, and a teaspoon of oregano. This added some flavor and kept the peppers moist.
Very tasty the cooking time worked out perfectly for me. I added some crushed red pepper flakes for additional seasoning. Kitą kartą, aš pridėsiu mažiau žemės kalakutienos daugiau daržovių - specialiai grybai cukinijos. Aš tai darysiu dar kartą.
