Stuffed Bell Peppers

Here is my favorite stuffed bell pepper recipe for an easy and healthy meal. Use your choice of red, green, orange, or yellow bell peppers to make these beautiful stuffed veggies filled with savory meat and rice.

  • 6 – Bell peppers (Yellow, Red, Orange- 6 pack)
  • 2 lb. Ground turkey (I did 1 lb of each turkey and sirloin since my guests aren’t big turkey fans)
  • 1 – 2 c. Brown rice, cooked (I made it with chicken stock instead of water)
  • 1 Medium white onion, chopped
  • 1 Clove garlic, minced
  • 1 Can diced tomatoes with chiles and peppers
  • 4 T. Tomato paste
  • 6 T. Brown sugar (trust me, it will not make it sweet, just balance some of the acidity from the tomatoes)
  • 1 T Red pepper flakes
  • 4 oz. smoky Gruyere cheese (6 of the deli slices will be for the top)
  • 2- 2 ½  c. Sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Dried parsley flakes
  • Sour cream
