Healthy 21 Day Fix + Hammer & Chisel Recipes Continued

Honestly, if you have followed me for long at all, then you know that I like to wing it with my recipes. I saw a couple of the gals in my 21 Day Fix Challenge Group* posting that they had been making stuffed peppers for a meal option, I decided that I would try to concoct my own version! I am also trying to do better about writing my concoctions down afterward because I always seem to forget!! SO! First thing I did was wash and slice the peppers maybe I should do these in steps and number them... yeah, let's try that...

1. Pre-heat oven to 350
2. Wash yo peppers
3. Slice them in half and remove the seeds and core

4. Bake the EMPTY peppers for 20 minutes

5. Brown 1 lb of Lean Ground Turkey in a skillet while the peppers are baking and then set aside

6. I like to use as few pans as possible so in the same pan, I added 1 yellow squash, 1 zucchini squash, 1/2 of a small can of green chiles, 1 14oz can of crushed tomatoes, a Tablespoon of Southwest Seasoning, one can of Black Beans, 1 minced garlic clove, 1/8c diced onion (I will list ingredients below) 

7. let this all simmer together until the squash is tender 

8. Ok, so, this is when I use my containers - I measure the meat out with my red container and my veggie concoction with my green container. I combine them in a bowl and this is enough to fill 2 pepper shells. So, this means that if you eat 1 pepper, you are only getting 1/2 red and 1 green - eat 2 peppers for an entire serving of protein and 2 veggie servings. You might want to take into account that there are black beans in this veggie mix - if you don't want to keep track of the 1/4 serving of carbs mentally then perhaps you will want to omit them from the mixture and measure them separately so that you can add either a full yellow container to two peppers. 

Ingredient List:

4 Bell Peppers
1lb Ground Turkey
1 Zucchini Squash, diced (try using a Vidalia Onion Chopper
1 Yellow Squash, diced
1 can Crushed Tomatoes
1/2 4oz can of Green Chiles
1 Clove Minced Garlic 
1/8c Onion, diced 
Cilantro for taste
