Ingredients

  • 4-6 orange bell peppers
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1/2 red onion (diced)
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1 (6 oz) can tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 4 cups frozen vegetable medley (corn, peas & carrots) thawed
  • 1 lb russet potatoes (washed, peeled and cubed)
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt (or lite sour cream)
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1

Preheat oven to 350. Slice the top off of the 6 peppers and reserve. Remove the seeds and, if desired, use a paring knife to carve a jack o’lantern face into each pepper.

2

Heat a skillet over medium heat, add the 1 pound ground beef, ½ medium chopped onion, 1 garlic clove minced, and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook, breaking up the meat, until it is browned. Drain any excess grease.

3

Stir in the can of tomato paste and 1 ½ cups beef broth. Add 4 cups vegetables, bring to a simmer, and cook for 10-15 minutes or until thickened slightly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

4

While the meat is cooking, place the pound of potatoes cut in 1-inch chunks and a pinch of salt into a pot of cold water, cover, and bring to boil. Remove cover and boil for 10-12 minutes, until fork tender. Drain and return to the pot, add 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, ¼ cup Greek yogurt or sour cream, ¼ cup milk, and salt. With potato masher or hand mixer, mash to desired consistency.

5

Divide the meat mixture between the peppers, then top with the mashed potatoes and remaining cheese, and place in a glass baking dish.

6

Bake for 30-45 minutes, or until heated through, peppers are tender and cheese and potatoes are slightly browned.
