I love stuffed green peppers but I never really thought to use red peppers. I LOVED the taste of red peppers a lot more. This meal will fill you up, and it is good for you.
My kids even loved eating it out of their “red pepper bowls”. It was a fun dinner for a change, and they all gobbled them right up.
We didn’t even have any leftovers, they went so fast.

could i grill these?
You could most definitely grill these. We recommend wrapping them in foil to grill them, and we don’t recommend flipping them.
Keep the grill on low and cook low and slow, for the best results.
If you flip them, the ingredients will slip out, and the cheese will melt to the foil.
what other meat would be good in these?
If you are looking to add a different kind of meat to these stuffed peppers, here is what we recommend:
-Chicken (grilled or shredded)
-Shredded Turkey Breast
You could really use any meat. You could even turn these into breakfast stuffed peppers, with egg and bacon. Have fun with your stuffed peppers, and add all your favorite taco toppings.
I love topping mine off with guacamole.

In a large skillet brown the turkey and season with salt. When the turkey is starting to brown, add taco seasoning, onion and garlic. When turkey is cooked through add your black beans, corn, cilantro, diced tomatoes, and cumin. Mix well and simmer on low, covered for 10 minutes. Remove lid and cook for 5 to 10 more minutes until most of the liquid is gone.
Preheat oven to 350°. Cut peppers in half lengthwise, removing seeds and stem.
Place peppers, cut side up in an oven-proof dish. (I used a 9X13) Fill each pepper with 1/2 cup turkey mixture. Pour about 1/3 cup water or chicken broth on the bottom of the dish. Cover tight with foil. Bake 45 minutes, or until the peppers become soft.
Remove foil, top each with cheese and bake uncovered an additional 5 minutes. Top with green onions and serve with reduced-fat sour cream if you want.
