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.
