Taco Stuffed Peppers

I’m quickly approaching the one month mark of starting my job, which means I’ll have to start meal prepping pretty seriously again. This one took under 30 minutes, and just a few pans. Super simple ingredients and clean up for a win-win!


  • 1 package ground turkey
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 3 bell peppers (mixed colors)
  • 1 cup shredded 3 cheese blend
  • spices: 1 tsp chili powder, 1/2 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, salt, pepper, 2 tbsp hot sauce of choice
  • optional topping: cilantro

Get to it:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F.
  2. Dice onion and sauté on stove top.
  3. Slice peppers in half and remove pits and seeds.
  4. Sprinkle with avocado oil, salt, and pepper and place in oven.
  5. Continue sautéing onions until translucent.
  6. Add ground turkey and spices and hot sauce (if you have pre-made taco seasoning, this works too).
  7. Stir on stove top until turkey is browned and cooked throughout.
  8. Remove peppers from oven and stuff ground turkey mixture inside.
  9. Top with cheese.
  10. Return to oven until cheese is melted, ~5 minutes.
  11. Serve with cilantro.
