Clean Cheeseburger stuffed bell peppers

Clean Cheeseburger stuffed bell peppers
I found this lovely gem on pinterest when doing the 21 Day Fix!  These are awesome, and taste like they should be BAD for you, but so good!  Tastes like a Cheeseburger inside a bell pepper!!!

This recipe serves 2-3 with the following counts per stuffed pepper:  (1 Red, 1 Yellow, 2 Green, 1/2 Blue)


2-3 Sweet bell peppers of your color choice.
1 Yellow container of brown rice, or quinoa
1/2 Yellow container of black beans, (canned) rinsed and drained
1/2 Yellow container of frozen corn
2 Red containers of browned low fat ground turkey or beef, seasoned with 21 Day Fix Southwestern Seasoning 
1 Green container of petite diced tomatoes (no sugar added, Should only contain tomatoes and ascorbic acid)
1 Green container of tomato sauce (same as diced tomatoes.  Read the label.)
1 Blue container of your favorite cheese



1. Cook brown rice, or quinoa
2.  Brown ground meat and season with Southwest seasoning.  Set aside to cool.
3. Drain and rinse black beans.  
4.  Combine in large bowl meat, tomatoes, corn, rice/quinoa, beans, and sauce.
5.  Cut caps off of peppers and pull out ribs and core.  Rinse excess seeds out.
6. Stuff peppers with filling.
7. Sprinkle with cheese.
8.  Bake at 375 Fahrenheit for 40-45 minutes.  Cheese should be melted and filling should be heated all the way through.

These are awesome.  We typically make a double batch, of these!!!
