Happy Friday!! I'm coming back at you with a "Foodie Friday" post! I've been being more aware of the foods I've been putting in my body and have been looking for different recipes that not only look good but taste great! I found this on Pinterest, the hub for all things recipe related lol, and y''s AMAZING!! I love Mexican food so the fact that this gives me that vibe but is a healthier alternative is amazing. I'll be sure to share more favorites along my fitness journey. You can check out past "Foodie Friday" post here! My bestie Molly always has some of the best healthy recipes on her blog! She has great dinner ideas when it's the night of and you're not sure what to make and you're "In a Pinch." Check out her blog and those posts here! Enjoy!

  • 1 pound lean ground turkey
  • 1 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 3/4 cup salsa, no sugar added
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese, reduced-fat
  • 3 bell peppers

  1. Remove seeds, core, and membrane from bell peppers then slice each one into 6 verticle pieces where they dip down. Set sliced bell peppers aside.
  2. Cook ground turkey over medium-high heat, breaking up as it cooks. Cook until the turkey loses it's pink color and is cooked through. Drain off any fat.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Combine cooked turkey with spices and salsa. Evenly distribute mixture into the bell pepper boats, top with cheese.
  5. Bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted and peppers are hot. Optional ingredients: sliced Jalepeno peppers, diced avocado, fat-free Greek yogurt or sour cream, or sliced green onions.
  6. NOTE: If you prefer much softer bell peppers, add a few tablespoons water to the bottom of a large casserole dish, add filled nachos, cover tightly with foil and bake 15 minutes.
