Mini Pepper Nachos

  • Serving Size4


    • 2 small packages OR one large packages mini peppers 
    • 1 lb ground turkey or lean grass fed beef
    • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
    • 1 tsp ground cumin
    • 1 T chili powder
    • 1/2- 1 c organic salsa, no sugar added
    • pinch salt
    • 2 T chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1/4-1/3 c full fat feta cheese (optional)



    Preheat oven to 400 F.


    Slice the peppers lengthwise, then remove the stem and seeds. Place on a baking sheet that has been lined with  parchment paper for easy clean up.


    Place peppers in the oven for 12 minutes.


    Place a large skillet over medium heat. Grease the skillet with approved oil. Add ground turkey and allow to cook through, breaking up the turkey into small pieces.


    Cook about 7 minutes, until no longer pink in any place.


    Add the garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, salsa and pinch of salt. Allow to cool slightly while waiting on peppers to finish.


    Stuff the peppers with a small spoon once they come out of the oven. Top with feta cheese (optional) or just sprinkle with chopped fresh cilantro.


    If you add the cheese, turn on the oven’s broiler. Place the nachos under the broiler for 2 minutes (use parchment paper to line the baking sheet with if you are going to use the broiler).


    Serve hot or at room temperature.
