Unstuffed Pepper Skillet
This recipe is AMAZING - I adapted it from The Garlic Diaries whose recipe is perfect - but I decided to add a cup of mushrooms and omit the rice - you really could mix this all up with different veggies even, the best part is really the seasoning and the addition of lime juice and cilantro - really makes this recipe pop!
1 red bell pepper, diced
½ onion, diced
1 Cup Mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
8 oz lean ground turkey
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder
1 teaspoon paprika
¾ teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoons olive oil
¼ cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
Chopped cilantro for garnish!
Spray skillet with cooking spray and warm over medium heat
Once pan is hot, add ground turkey and season with salt and pepper
Brown Turkey until it is cooked through, stirring occasionally
Season cooked turkey with ½ teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon paprika, and ¼ teaspoon oregano. Stir to mix
Set the turkey aside on a plate
Add veggies (pepper, onion, garlic, mushrooms) to pan and season with salt and pepper. After sauteing a few minutes - add your cherry tomatoes in - stir to combine
Let the veggies cook until they have softened.
Once veggies are cooked - add the remaining spices (1/2 teaspoon cumin, ½ teaspoon chili powder, ½ teaspoon paprika, and ½ teaspoon oregano)
Add the turkey back into the veggies
Add your lime juice and stir everything together. Season to taste
Top with cheese, split in two and enjoy!
