Posted on August 29 2016

Clean eating can be difficult to do especially on the weekends.  I prefer to use all those extra calories i burn from my workout on some kickass cocktails so i have to keep the eating somewhat clean.  This is a great recipe we found for Bell Pepper Nachos from SkinnyMs.Com

  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 3/4 cup salsa, no sugar added
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
  • 3 bell peppers

Directions

Remove seeds, core, and membrane from bell peppers then slice each one into 6 verticle pieces where they dip down. Set sliced bell peppers aside.

Cook ground turkey over medium-high heat, breaking up as it cooks. Cook until the turkey loses it's pink color and is cooked through. Drain off any fat.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. 

Combine cooked turkey with spices and salsa. Evenly distribute mixture into the bell pepper boats, top with cheese. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and peppers are hot. 

NOTE: If you prefer much softer bell peppers, add a few tablespoons water to the bottom of a large casserole dish, add filled nachos, cover tightly with foil and bake 15 minutes. 

Remove from the oven and add additional toppings, If desired. 

Optional ingredients: sliced Jalepeno peppers, diced avocado, fat-free Greek yogurt or sour cream, or sliced green onions.
