Because you asked!

(Francis, sorry this took so long!)

Jennie's crazy-healthy and yum yum
'Green Pepper Turkey'
~
Step 1: Brown 1 lb turkey meat
(be sure to chop into small pieces)
(you could use beef, but the turkey is really good and way healthier!)
.
Step 2: Add small amount of water and one packet of taco or faieta seasoning (how do you spell faeta?!) to the browned meat.
.
Step 3: Carefully cut the top off of large green peppers. (set top aside, you will use it.)
Gut the green peppers.
.
Step 4: Layer
1st - shredded cheese in the bottom of the green pepper.
2nd - Browned and seasoned turkey mixture.
3rd - Shredded cheese on top.
Place the green pepper top back on top.
.
Step 5: Bake
350 for like 30 minutes.
.
Waaalllah.
Green Pepper Turkey!
Brian, the girls and I all love it! It is filling and also high in protein and low in carbs.
.
It's hot, so for your kids, remove the green pepper lids to cool.
You can serve with salsa, and/or sour cream.
.
Occasionally, I also do baked cheese.
If you want to make your kids crazy happy...
Put a glass cooking dish in the oven with the bottom covered in cheese
and bake it along with your green peppers.
.
Let it cool for a few minutes.
Comes out crispy baked cheesy goodness!
Not as healthy.... :)
