Instructions Checklist
  • Bring water and brown rice to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until rice is tender and liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, and parsley; cook for 2 minutes. Add ground turkey, salt, and garlic power. Cook and stir using a wooden spoon until meat is no longer pink and slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add tomato sauce and 1/2 cup chicken broth. Simmer over low heat for 5 minutes. Add cooked rice and stir stuffing well.

  • Fill each bell pepper half with stuffing and arrange neatly in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Cover each pepper with a handful of shredded Cheddar cheese. Pour remaining chicken broth into the bottom of the baking dish and cover tightly with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake until cheese is browned, about 5 minutes more. Serve right away.

Comfort food. Don't expect a lot of flavor. I didn't want 8 servings for the two of us so I made 1/2 the recipe. I added 1/2 tsp. of my homemade cajun seasoning for half the recipe; it could have used more. Not sure if I'll make it again. Read More

This was a very delicious dish but we did make some changes. We added a Creole spice that really kicked it up a notch. Read More
