Stuffed Peppers with a small twist

This dish is similar to stuffed peppers but without all of the fuss? Prepare this incredibly simple Stuffed Pepper Explosion Casserole, all the great flavors of the traditional dish, but it’s so very easy.

Stuffed Pepper Explosion Casserole

Ingredients

2 Tbsp olive oil

1 lb ground turkey (or ground beef)

1/2 C onion, chopped

2 bell peppers, chopped

2 C cooked rice (any variety)

1 14 oz can diced tomato (any variety)

2 C shredded cheddar, divided

1 Tbsp oregano

1 tsp garlic salt

1/4 tsp red pepper flakes (optional)

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a 9X13 baking dish with foil and grease it with cooking spray. Set aside.

1. In a large skillet sauté onion in olive oil, until translucent. Add ground turkey and cook thoroughly, approximately ten minutes. Drain any fat that is in pan.

2. Add the bell pepper to pan, turn heat to medium and cover, stirring occasionally. When pepper has softened, add spices, tomatoes and salt/pepper to taste. Continue cooking a couple additional minutes to blend flavors.

3. In large bowl combine: turkey & veggie mixture, rice and 1 1/2 cups cheese, mix thoroughly. Spoon into the previously prepared 9 x 13 casserole dish, covering with foil.

4. Cook for twenty five minutes. Remove from oven, remove foil carefully and add remaining 1/2 cup of shredded cheese. Place back into oven to broil two-three minutes to gently crisp cheese.
