Ground Turkey-Stuffed Bell Peppers

Serves 2-3 / Prep time: 10 min / cook time: 20 minutes


  • 5 large red and orange bell peppers
  • 1 package (20 oz) ground turkey
  • ½ package button mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, chopped
  • ¾ cup organic spaghetti sauce
  • ¼ cup mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • Salt & pepper
  • Olive oil


  1. Cut the tops off the bell peppers and remove seeds.
  2. Boil a large pot of water with a dash of salt, and place bell peppers in water for 3-4 minutes until the skin is soft. Remove from water and set upside down on a paper towel to drain.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  4. Heat 1 tsp olive oil, garlic, basil, jalapeno, and parsley in a skillet until garlic is golden.
  5. Add in the ground turkey and mushrooms, and sprinkle with salt, pepper, and chili powder. Heat until cooked through, adding the chopped tomato in the final 2 minutes.
  6. Pour in spaghetti sauce and cheese and combine until cheese is melted. Remove from heat.
  7. Stuff bell peppers with the turkey mixture and place onto an oven-safe dish (we used the same cast iron skillet to avoid extra dishwashing). Cook 15-18 minutes.
  8. Remove from the oven, allow to cool and enjoy!
