HEALTHY QUINOA TEX-MEX STUFFED PEPPERS (21 Day Fix-Friendly)

I made this last week, and it was delicious!  A quick and easy weeknight meal that will satisfy the whole family!

21 Day Fix Healthy Quinoa Tex-Mex Stuffed Peppers


HEALTHY QUINOA TEX-MEX STUFFED PEPPERS (21 Day Fix-Friendly)

(Modified from an original recipe at chefsavvy.com)

  • 10 ounces lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¾ cup crushed tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn
  • 1/2 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa
  • ½ tablespoon lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro, chopped
  • 3 bell peppers, cut in half and seeded

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a large skillet with cooking spray.  Add in ground turkey and saute until fully cooked, about 4-5 minutes.  Add onion and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Toss in garlic and cook for an additional minute.
     
    Stir in crushed tomatoes, corn, beans, cumin, chili powder, paprika, pepper and salt. Bring to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
     
    Take off the heat and stir in cooked quinoa, lime juice and cilantro.
     
    Stuff peppers with the filling and place in a 9 x 13 pan. Cover with aluminum foil. Bake for 20-25 or until the peppers are tender and the filling is hot.  Serve immediately.
     
    (Leftover filling would be great simply served over rice or cooked quinoa too!)
     
    21 Day Fixers!:  One half of a bell pepper would count as approximately --> 1.5 green, 1 red, 1.5 yellow containers.
