Stuffed peppers

Our mid-week meal from last week, these stuffed peppers are healthy and delicious! Super simple to throw together and I had enough left over mix to freeze for another meal down the road. The boys both ate it really well (J better than A), and an extra stuffed pepper reheated well the next for leftovers. I served it with jasmine rice (yes the frozen kind from Whole Foods) and that was it! The peppers themselves are loaded with ground turkey, beans, corn, and tomatoes, so you don’t really need anything else:

One last note, I cut the simmering time down by about half, and they still turned out fine. I hadn’t planned for an extra thirty minutes before the oven cooking time, and so I sped up a lot of the simmering, but they ended up delicious anyway!

Stuffed peppersIf you are trying to figure out what to make for dinner tonight, make these. Except make them less messy than I did, HA!

I discovered this recipe on Lauren Elizabeth’s blog, which lead me to the site of the recipe, which lead me to a whole new set of recipe ideas. What I love about it is you could make up all the ingredients for it, and freeze them and make it for one.

Happy Wednesday!
