Ingredients
  1. 1.5 lbs lean ground turkey or grass fed beef
  2. 1 small yellow onion, diced
  3. 1 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced very tiny
  4. 1.5 tsps. cumin
  5. 1 tsp. chili powder
  6. 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  7. 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  8. 1/4 tsp sea salt, or to taste
  9. 1.5 cups chunky salsa, all natural, low sugar
  10. 1/3 cup grated cheddar/jack cheese
  11. 4 bell peppers, mixed colors
  12. Optional "nacho" topping ideas: sliced jalapenos, diced avocado, Greek yogurt, sliced green onions, and/or cilantro leaves.
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees f.
  2. Remove the seeds, and membranes from your bell peppers then slice each one into 4-6 verticle pieces as shown (depends on the size of your bell peppers)
  3. I tried to slice them along the natural folds to keep little pockets/boats for my toppings.
  4. Set sliced bell peppers pocket side up on a large parchment lined sheet pan.
  5. Brown ground turkey over medium-high heat in a large saute pan, breaking up with a wooden spoon as it cooks.
  6. Add in onions, garlic, and diced jalapenos.
  7. Cook until the turkey is cooked through. Drain off grease if necessary.
  8. Stir spices and salsa into your cooked turkey. Carefully spoon turkey mixture into the little bell pepper boats.
  9. Spoon a couple Tablespoons of water onto the baking sheet, this will help steam and soften the peppers a bit.
  10. Bake for about 12-15 minutes or until peppers are hot and just beginning to soften. I like mine still fairly crisp.
  11. Sprinkle tops lightly with cheese, and bake for another minute or two until cheese is melty.
  12. Sprinkle with any toppings of choice, and enjoy immediately.
Notes
  1. 2-3 is one serving

    I was not a big lover of ground turkey. However, FFF has shown me so many delicious foods that can be made with turkey. I thought nachos meant chips. Well this recipe has changed my mind. These bell pepper nachos are not only appealing to the eye, but also absolutely delicious!! And they are good for you….veggie nachos! This is a must try recipe.

  • It’s taco Tuesday so I made tacos for my family and these for me. These nachos were errrrythang!!!! You hear me? They were easy to prepare…delicious and nutritious. I didn’t miss the chips or taco shell. I paired this with black beans and Mexican rice. My family liked them too…I had to remind them that they had tacos.
