Cheesy Turkey Stuffed Peppers

Tonight stuffed peppers are on the menu.

I am trying to find new and healthy ways to use ground turkey. My family is tired of turkey burgers.

Yup, I have made one too many turkey burgers lately and my family is ready to boycott them.

Luckily, I have these beautiful organic bell peppers I need to use up. Stuffed peppers are quick and easy to make. You can toss all sorts of fun ingredients into the meat mixture to make them more Mexican, Italian, Indian, or any other style you like.

The star of this recipe is sun dried tomatoes from Trader Joe’s. I love that these are packed in olive oil so they stay nice and soft.
