A couple nights ago I decided I was going to make one of my favorite dishes for Jay. (I know I say they're all my fav but they really are! Insert crying laughing emoji) Stuffed Peppers!! It's so simple to make and I promise you'll enjoy it!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
1. Cut the tops off the peppers. Remove and discard the stems. Place the peppers cut-side up in a baking dish just large enough to hold them upright.
2. Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground turkey, season with salt, adobo, and sazon and cook, breaking up the lumps, until the meat is cooked through and just beginning to brown, 8 to 10 minutes.
3. Wipe out the skillet and add the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil. Add the onions, mushrooms and chopped zucchini and cook until beginning to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Then add the tomato sauce and add the tomatoes. Season with salt, a little bit of sugar (like a pinch or 2) and red pepper flakes. (to your preference) Cook until everything is heated through, then stir in the ground turkey and rice. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Stir in 1 cup of the cheese.
4. Fill the peppers with the rice mixture and top each with a sprinkle of the remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Pour a small amount of water into the bottom of the baking dish and drizzle the peppers with a little olive oil. Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake until the peppers are soft and the cheese is melted and lightly browned, another 15 to 20 minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
