Game Day Goodie: Skinny Bell Pepper Nacho Boats
Easy. Healthy. Delicious. Does it get much better than that? Bell peppers contain one of the most amounts of vitamin C you can find in any food! They are colorful and great for a game day party snack.
What you will need
1 lb. lean ground turkey
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. kosher or sea salt
3/4 cup salsa, no sugar added
1 cup grated cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
3 bell peppers
optional ingredients: sliced jalapeno peppers, diced avocado, fat-free Greek yogurt or sour cream, and sliced green onions
Remove seeds, core, and membrane from bell peppers then slice each one into 6 vertical 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 its 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.
Top with optional ingredients: sliced jalapeno peppers, diced avocado, fat-free Greek yogurt or sour cream, or sliced green onions.
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.
