Move Over Rachael Ray

A few days ago, I was inspired to try a new recipe, one I was going to create myself. A Kristin Krosschell original. A while back I had an amazing Southwestern Turkey Burger at Champps which sparked the idea for this new recipe. It turned out amazing so I thought i'd share in case any of you want to give it a try.

Southwestern Stuffed Peppers

*1 package of Jennie-O Extra Lean Ground Turkey (so much better for you than ground beef and tastes amazing)
*6 Red Peppers (I used 4, but had enough for 2 more)
*1 can of Fat Free Black Beans
*I package of Corn
* 1/2 and Onion (more or less depending on taste)
*1 cup Fat Free Feta Cheese (because everything tastes better with Feta!)
*Garlic (to taste)
*Mrs. Dash Southwestern Seasoning (awesome because it's made without salt or msg!)
*Franks RedHot Sauce (I honestly can't make anything without this)


*The first thing I did was chop and sautee the onion with garlic and olive oil, then added the ground turkey to cook
*Next I strained and rinsed the black beans (a little trick I learned to cut calories and get rid of the slimy sauce they come in)
*After than I cut off the tops of the red peppers and scraped out all the seeds. I aslo rinsed the inside with water and sprayed them with oil oil so the meat doesn't get stuck to the sides while it's cooking
*Next I added the black beans and corn to the turkey and onion mixture and let those cook
*Finally I added the Mrs. Dash Southwestern seasoning and the Frank's HotSauce (add as much or as little as your want) and very last I mixed in the Feta cheese
*Next, spoon the meat mixture into the peppers and place them in a baking dish with about 2 cups of water, just enough water so the peppers cook but don't wilt.
*Cover the baking dish with tin foil and cook the peppers at 350 for about 25 minutes. Check them ever so often to make sure they aren't wilting. I like my peppers crispy so I cooked them for about 20 minutes...but keep them in longer based on your preferance.
*Once the peppers were cooked I took them out of the oven and served them with half an avacado, which tasted amazing when mixed with all of the southwestern flavors! Best part, this whole meal was only about 300 calories!
