Stuffed Peppers

Yet another recipe I randomly threw together... thankfully it is super easy and turned out yummy!
Hard to mess up because everything is to taste...

2 red peppers (washed, halved, and seeded)
appx. 1 lb. ground beef (or turkey... if ground beef I like the free range/grass fed)
appx. 2 c. brown rice
1/2 yellow onion, chopped
dash garlic powder
dash seasoning salt
appx. 1 c. salsa (I like Green Mountain Gringo jarred, but fresh would be even better)
appx. 1 c. cheddar cheese (+ extra for garnish)
greek yogurt (or sour cream) for garnish
avocado for garnish

Saute chopped onion in a fry pan with a little butter.  Add ground beef.  Season with garlic powder and seasoning salt. 

While meat is cooking, place pepper halves on cookie sheet and bake on 350 for about 6 min.

When beef is fully cooked, add salsa, rice and cheese to the fry pan. Cook for another 2 minutes and remove from heat.  Scoop the beef mixture into the pepper halves evenly.  Cover with remaining cheddar cheese and put back in oven for 15 minutes.

Serve with a scoop of Greek yogurt and a few slices of avocado.  Yum!

-my guess is that Ty would really like this one (especially when made with turkey) because it's pretty healthy and still tasty.
