BBQ Turkey in Pepper Shells Recipe

Makes 6 servings.  1 stuffed bell pepper shell half per serving.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 25 minutes


 ¾ pound lean ground turkey
1 large onion, peeled and chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 (14½-ounce) can no salt added diced tomatoes
1 cup low-sodium canned black beans, drained and rinsed
½ cup prepared barbecue sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
3 bell peppers (any color)


Brown ground turkey in a medium skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink; drain excess fat.
Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Add all remaining ingredients except the whole bell peppers; simmer for 10 minutes over medium heat.
Meanwhile, cut the whole bell peppers in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Place in a microwave-safe dish with a small amount of water.
Cover and microwave bell pepper on high until crisp-tender, for about 5 minutes.
Remove peppers from the dish and place on a large plate. Spoon turkey mixture into bell pepper shells and serve.
