Cheesy Mexican-Style Stuffed Peppers

My coworker Casey just started testing out her cooking skills in the kitchen. She recently raved about the concoction she made, so I demanded she provide us the recipe! Here is what I stole from her:

Ingredients:

1 pound ground turkey

1 box Annie’s whole wheat cheese and shells

6-8 bell peppers (depending on size)

3 handfuls tortilla chips

1 cup shredded Mexican style cheese

2 table spoons Olive oil

Pinch of salt, pepper and cayenne to taste

 

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • Cook pasta following directions on box and set aside.
  • Cut tops of pepper off. Rinse seeds out of peppers and place on baking dish
  • Take the tops of the peppers that were cut off and cut into little pieces ( these will be added to the stuffing)
  • Add olive oil to skillet. Take cut peppers and add to pan, along with the ground turkey.
  • Season with spices and cook until turkey is brown.
  • Add turkey to pasta, making sure to distribute evenly.
  • Mix crumpled tortilla chips into the stuffing.
  • Stuff peppers with mixture and place in oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese.
  • Place peppers back into the oven until cheese melts.
  • Once the cheese melts remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Now it is ready to eat!
