  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in ground turkey, onion, jalapeno, and garlic. Cook and stir until turkey browns and vegetables are tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain grease from the skillet. Add frozen riced cauliflower, tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, chili paste, salt, and pepper; stir until well incorporated. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

  • Place bell pepper halves in the prepared baking dish. Place 1 Colby-Jack cheese cube in each pepper half, and fill with turkey mixture. Spoon remaining turkey mixture into the dish around the peppers.

  • Cover dish with aluminum foil, and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove foil and sprinkle each pepper with shredded Colby-Jack cheese. Bake, uncovered, until peppers are soft and cheese has melted, about 10 minutes more.

  • To serve, spoon a little turkey mixture onto a plate, and place a bell pepper half on top of it. Top each serving with 1 teaspoon sour cream and 2 jalapeno slices.

Amazing!! My husband loved, loved, loved them. He didn't even notice he was eating KETO recipe. I modified the recipe by adding Las Palmas chili sauce instead of tomato sauce; also added cheese to the turkey meat mixture. Will definitely do again Read More

I added sliced portobello mushrooms because I love them and used Victoria White Linen Marinara. I couldn t find the chili paste so I used red pepper flakes and chili powder. This recipe is really easy has a lot of flavor and makes a lot of leftovers. Read More

So I just made this for dinner tonight. Coming from a fat guy who loves his rice, the cauliflower was a surprising great substitute. The meat mixture had enough flavor that the white rice was not missed. This low carb option is fantastic and we will make it again soon. I will say the cheese and sour cream will make anything taste good so don't miss out on it. Read More

Really good! I made it exactly as instructed (er.... except I did 5 cloves of garlic... hehehe) since I’ve never made anything like this before and I’m a novice cook. I’m not on keto but just a wanted something tasty and healthy. I usually don’t like cauliflower but the cauliflower rice was well incorporated and didn’t bother me at all. The only thing is that I would like to find a way to make the sauce of the mixture just a little bit thicker next time (maybe slightly less water or a little bit of some kind of thickener? Or let it simmer a bit longer?). Sorry my picture isn’t great, the red plates we have don’t make food the most photogenic. Anyway it was delicious and I’d definitely make it again even if I can’t thicken it. Update: I had extra mixture when making this recently (I bought the peppers a couple days ahead and one went bad so I could only make two rather than four) and I just added some of it to some leftover spaghetti. Delicious! Read More

Loved it! I probably wouldn’t add water next time, because my personal preference is for a thicker sauce. Read More

We really enjoyed this! I did not add the water and it came out fine. I used Swiss cheese in each pepper and mozzarella on top. Will make this again Read More
