I really like stuffed bell peppers, and I have always made them with ground beef, this time I only had ground turkey and decided to try something new.
And guess what? We all loved them!
I wanted to write down the this recipe before I forget what I put in it. Take a look at the pics and tell me it doesn't look good?

1 lb ground turkey
3-4 garlic cloves (minced)
1 medium red onion (chopped)
1 cup roasted corn kernels (you can toast a can of corn in a skillet):
1 cup of cooked rice (I used basmati)
smoked paprika (to taste)
salt and pepper, to taste
2-3 TB fresh chopped parsley
Preheat oven to 375
Put olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat and cook the ground turkey till browned.
Add a dash more olive oil, add the chopped garlic, onion, roasted corn:
Saute until nicely browned
Add the cooked rice and mix together.
Add more olive oil if you need to moisten it.
Add the spices and salt/pepper and 1/2 of the chopped parsley.
Remove from heat.
Choose a shallow baking dish that will fit the halved peppers.
Stuff the halved peppers with the mixture, pressing in firmly, use as much stuffing as you can.
Place the bell peppers in a baking dish:
Pour about 1/2 cup of hot water in the bottom of the baking dish.
Cover loosely with foil and bake for 30-45 minutes, until bell peppers are tender.
Once done, garnish with chopped parsley...
