Sometimes it can be difficult to find healthy, tasty comfort foods. I'm happy to say that task has been achieved here! These Turkey Stuffed Peppers have some wonderful flavor with a little bit of a spicy kick from the cayenne pepper.
I can't say I was always a big fan of peppers. But as I get older, I make sure that I try foods that I haven't had in a few years. For example, my whole life I disliked asparagus. I purchased some of the thinner-stemmed asparagus to try in a recipe to share with you. I never serve (or post) food from my kitchen without trying it. I expected to hate it, but I didn't! I was pleasantly surprised.
I should note that I also that I ended up trying the thicker asparagus and still don't like it.

Getting back to the peppers, about a year into my weight loss journey I decided to try them again in my salads and I liked them.
Bell peppers have made it in to the superfood family. They are a great source of vitamin C. In addition, they're packing vitamin K1, vitamin E, vitamin A, folate, and potassium.
I wanted to create a really good, hearty filling and keep it healthy. Mission accomplished! I was able to sneak some spinach into this recipe, too, which is also in the superfood family. These Turkey Stuffed Peppers come in at 300 calories.
If you wanted to bring the calories down even more, you can use ground turkey breast and omit the cheese. If you do opt for the ground turkey breast, just remember it can get dry because of the lack of fat.
I'm very happy with them and hope you will love them, too!
