mini bell pepper loaded turkey nachos.

In honor of the fact that I’m eating leftovers of this for lunch today, I thought I’d share a recipe for some “nachos” I made over the weekend.

Mini Bell Pepper Loaded Turkey Nachos

Ingredients:

  • olive oil spray
  • 1 lb lean ground turkey
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 onion, minced
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or parsley
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 c tomato sauce
  • 1/4 c chicken broth
  • 21 mini rainbow peppers, halved and seeded
  • 1 cup sharp shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp light sour cream, thinned with 1 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp sliced black olives
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced thin (optional)
  • chopped cilantro, for garnish

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking try with parchment or aluminum foil. Lightly spray with oil.
2. Spray oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat.
3. Add onion, garlic and cilantro and saute about 2 minutes, add ground turkey, salt, garlic powder, cumin and cook meat for 4 to 5 minutes until meat is completely cooked through. Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and chicken broth, mix well and simmer on medium for about 5 minutes, remove from heat.
4. Meanwhile, arrange mini peppers in a single layer, cut-side up close together.
5. Fill each with cooked ground turkey mixture, then top with shredded cheese and jalapeno slices, if using.
6. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.
7. Remove from oven and top with black olives, sour cream and cilantro. Serve immediately.
