Today on National Donut Day, I bring to you stuffed mini sweet peppers (so like complete opposite end of the spectrum from donuts)… These are a great summer appetizer, they are so easy to make (maybe they’re easy because I bought microwavable rice- whatever, judge me, I hate cooking rice), and a crowd pleaser. They got the official “roommate approval” when I made them.
For this recipe I used about 3/4 of a bag of mini peppers and I still had left over stuffing mix (by stuffing mix I mean the rice, beans, ground turkey, etc)… So the mix will probably fill about 2 bags of mini sweet peppers.
For the mix, cook 1 lb ground turkey in Mexican seasoning. While the ground turkey is cooking, cook your rice according to the directions on the box or bag. Drain your corn and black beans, dice your tomatoes and onions, and then in a large bowl combine everything. When I mean large bowl, I’m not playing around, you need a very large bowl. There’s a lot of mix.
Then of course you top it with cheese, cause cheese…
