Gluten-Free Stuffed Peppers with Ground Turkey


Recipe: Gluten-Free Stuffed Peppers with Ground Turkey

Summary: My flavors are closer to Southwestern than Italian here, so if you prefer more traditional flavors, add Italian herbs instead of the smoked chile and cumin (but Dear Reader, the smoky addition of chipotle gives these babies a serious kick in the butt).


    • 1-2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, as needed
    • 1 lb ground turkey
    • 3-4 garlic cloves, chopped
    • 1 medium red onion, diced
    • 1 cup roasted corn kernels (you can pan-toast frozen kernels in a pinch)
    • 2 rounded tablespoons pine nuts or toasted sunflower seeds
    • 1 cup or so cooked brown rice
    • Chipotle powder, to taste [or other favorite chile powder]
    • 1/2 teaspoon cumin, or to taste
    • 1 teaspoon paprika or smoked paprika
    • Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
    • 2-3 tablespoons fresh chopped cilantro or parsley
