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!
