Unstuffed Pepper Bowls

Bowls are layered with store-bought cauliflower rice (white or brown rice may be substituted), cheddar, and a seasoned ground turkey and bell pepper mixture. Just think unstuffed bell peppers – meaning all the flavor without all the time and hassle!

  7. Cook turkey through then stir in tomatoes and pepper mixture and warm through, about 1 minute. Stir in parsley.
