GROUND TURKEY + WILD RICE + BLACK BEANS + TOMATOES
There's so many ways to stuff bell peppers, but this spicy dish is by far my favorite! It has the perfect ratio of meat to rice and beans. Ironically, it's packed with kale that's so well disguised, no one will even know it's there. I cooked this recipe for my family and they assumed it was some sort of green herb like parsley or chives. They were shocked to find out it's kale.
THE SPICE IS REAL
If you were heavy handed with the cayenne, I know you're getting a feisty kick that has you grateful for the side of sour cream. I'm always impressed with myself when I make something spicier than I anticipated. It forces me to slow down for relief from the heat and enjoy every delectable bite.
If you're not opposed to adding a starchy vegetable, I'd recommend corn. If you're trying to cut back on carbs, I'd recommend cooking less rice and adding more meat, or take the rice out entirely.
I always find that eating an entire pepper can be a lot of food, so I like to pair it with something light like a salad. I'm curious to know what else you would pair with this dish and how you put your own twist on it. Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time, stay beYOUtiful, keep life sweet, and never stop feeding your soul. -xo
