  • 1/2 tspGarlic powder
  • 1 tspChili powder
  • 1 tspCumin
  • 1/2 tspPepper
  • 1/2 tspSalt
  • 1 cupSalsa
  • 1 cup2% cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 24mini bell peppers (or 3 regular size medium bell peppers)


The estimated total time to make this recipe is 15-20 Minutes.
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line with foil and spray with cooking spray.
  2. Cut the top off a thin layer off of the top of the mini bell peppers, (lengthwise) in order to make the pepper a “boat” for the filling and remove the seeds and core. (If using large bell peppers, cut each pepper into 8 wedges.) Place on baking pan.

  3. In a medium skillet, cook the ground turkey over medium-high heat, breaking up as it cooks. Half way through cooking, add the spices and 1/2 cup salsa. Continue to cook until the turkey is fully browned, then turn off heat. Add the rest of the salsa (1/2 cup) to the pan and stir to combine.
