Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers

Finished Recipe

I was in the mood for Mexican food, but I didn’t want tacos since we had made them a few nights prior.  I was doing a little recipe grazing, and stumbled upon this one. I am so happy I did too. It was so easy and really fulfilled my want for Mexican food. It also sent my husband for seconds and thirds!  I am not sure if I didn’t fill the peppers to their fullest, or if the peppers I bought were small, but I had enough leftover for another meal! This was a win! In the freezer they go! 



Mexican Stuffed Bell Peppers


  • 4 large Red Bell Peppers
  • 1 pound Ground Turkey
  • 1 cup Cooked Rice
  • 1/2 cups Frozen Corn
  • 10 ounces Canned Black Beans
  • 1 cup Salsa
  • 1 tablespoon Taco Seasoning
  • 2 cups Mexican Cheese


Rinse black beans and thaw corn. Combine it together with cooked rice, cheese and salsa.

    Cook ground turkey in a skillet until brown and add taco seasoning.

      Combine meat with the rice mixture.

        Cut bell peppers in halves and remove seeds from the bell peppers.

          Stuff each piece with the mixture. Top with some Mexican cheese (I ran out, so I used sharp cheddar)and bake for 30 minutes at 350 F
